“There are terrible accusations against Sodom and Gomorrah, and their sin is very great. I must go down to find out whether or not the accusations which I have heard are true.” Genesis 18

Headline reads:

“Oregon School to Offer Free Condoms to Sixth Graders, and That's OK!”

“Human fetuses are ‘goo’ and not worthy of protection.”

“Hailed as a patriot, PFC Bergdahl was given a ceremonial tunic and turban by his “captors” prior to his release. A gift reserved for friends, he was referred to as their guest.”

“US census, 2013, reports the number of gay couples at 901,997, and growing.”

Former pastor and friend of the Bergdahl family writes - “I can attest to both Bob and Jani Bergdahl’ unwavering commitment to Christ and trust in Him. Bob and Jani both have regularly confessed their dependence upon Christ and rest in Him.”

“…the men of Sodom were wicked, great sinners against the LORD.” Genesis 13:13

Has America gone the way of Sodom and Gomorrah? Is America on a collision course with The Creator of the Universe? Will America reap what it has sown - both here and abroad? Has God given this nation over to its desires of the flesh?

Professing to be wise, they became fools,and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures. Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.…” Romans 1

With the legalization of abortion through the passing of Roe v Wade and in 1963, with the Supreme Court upholding the argument of the atheist Madelyn Murray O'Hare and promulgated an edict with ramifications so widespread it insured that God would be evicted from public society across the entire spectrum of the American governmental system. From that day to this, not only has murder of the innocent become legal, but prayer has been outlawed. God's very name has been declared anathama to the United States Constitution, and forbidden to be mentioned in any federal, state, county, city or municipal context. What do you think?


  1. America went the way of Sodom a long time ago.

  2. We are presently under God's wrath of abandonment, at any moment He will unleash severe and final wrath. The need for prayer is essential; pray for ourselves, for strength and wisdom. Pray for lost loved ones, pray for sinners around the globe. Pray for the coming of Christ.

    "He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming soon." Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

  3. Sadly, the majority of Americans are in a dense fog, a few coming out of their stupor, but indeed we, His remnant must continue to pray and intercede for the lost among us. America has indeed gone the way of Sodom, but we must snatch some from the burning flames.

    Pray saints, PRAY!!!

  4. Ali,

    I think A.W. Pink summed it up years ago when he wrote this from 'The Redeemer's Return'...

    The “falling away” is evidenced on every hand. Not only are many of our Seminaries cesspools of spiritual corruption, not only are hundreds of our pulpits now filled by traitors to the cause they profess to champion, not only is every cardinal doctrine of the faith attacked and denied by the very ones paid to defend them, but the evil effects of such teaching from our religious leaders has influenced multitudes of souls committed to their care. The man in the pew, following the lead of his teachers, has lost faith in the Bible as a Divine revelation, and in consequence, no longer submits to its authority. Hence it is that there is such a “falling away” in the number of genuine conversions—we say “genuine” conversions because there are multitudes of those who come forward to shake some popular preacher by the hand, multitudes of card-signers, “trail-hitters” etc., etc. Hence it is that there has been such a sad and such a wide-spread “falling away” from the old time family worship.
    Hence it is that we now witness such a lamentable “falling away” from the mid-week prayer-meeting. Hence it is that there is such an awful “falling away” from the observance of the Holy Sabbath. Hence it is that there is such a fearful “falling away” from the moral standards of former days. Hence it is that there is now such an ever-growing “falling away” from Sunday School attendance all over the land. Yes, the “falling away” has commenced and is already far advanced.

    The “falling away” is also to be seen in the many false systems of recent development. We may cite as illustrations the “New Theology” formulated and popularized by R. J. Campbell; “Christian Science” (so called) with its repudiation of sin and the vicarious Sacrifice of Christ; “Russellism” with its horrible blasphemies upon the person of our Lord and its erroneous and soul-destroying heresy of the “second chance;” “Spiritualism” with its intercourse with demons who impersonate the dead. Formerly, three-fourths of the votaries of these anti-Christian systems were outwardly attached to the Truth, inasmuch as they were members of evangelical denominations. The same “falling away” may be seen in the rapid decay of Protestantism and the silent but sure growth of Roman Catholicism.

    The “falling away” which characterizes our day was referred to by the apostle when he said, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables” (2 Tim. 4:3, 4). That time has arrived! Church-goers today will not endure “sound doctrine.” Those who preach the total depravity of man, who insist upon the imperative necessity of the new birth, who set forth the inflexible righteousness and holiness of God, and who warn against the Eternal and conscious torment awaiting every rejector of Christ, find it almost impossible to obtain a hearing. Such preachers are regarded as puritanical pessimists, and are not wanted. In these degenerate times, the masses demand that which will soothe them in their sins and amuse them while they journey down the Broad Road. The multitude is affected with “itching ears” which crave novelty and that which is sensational. They have ears which wish to be “tickled,” ears which eagerly drink in the songs of professional and unsaved soloists and choristers, ears which are well pleased with the vulgar slang of our modern evangelists.

    Pray indeed, and get on our faces before our thrice holy God!
