People Maps

The judgement of Sodom & Gomorrah has many lessons for life. I take it to be history, not allegory. The minority are being oppressed, bizarre & unnatural relationships have taken hold of the people’s imaginations & wills. Genesis 18:16-38.

God shows patience & investigation. In the end judgement comes. Not long after judgement comes upon Lots wife. After too much worry & with the use of alcohol Lots daughters manipulate their father into having sex.

If ever there was a picture of “we all like sheep have gone astray” Isaiah 53:6. This would be a good likeness.

How about that, Christianity in the minority (a saviour was foretold), pressure to conform, sexist & manipulative women & men, surrogacy, incest, rape, spiritual heeding ignored, refugees, immigration, natural catastrophe & sexual immorality.

There is nothing new under the sun, says the Bible. If we want to know how it is that we should live then we need clarity, not the blurred marred life of human experience & inexperience. Left & right wing politics will only take us so far, & often round in circles or backwards while they lord it over each other. Only with God’s help can we truly break free.

God sent His Son, they called Him Jesus. Col 1:15 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. God has spoken, but are we really listening.
