Scripture warns us

According to Webster’s dictionary, the word “gay” has been in use since about the 14th century and in a good way, but as used for homosexuality only since 1953. This sounds like identity theft. Abraham showed compassion when he pleaded with God to spare Sodom and Gomorrah, but not 10 righteous people could be found. It would be blasphemy to say this judgment was due to lack of hospitality. It was the angels of God who shut the door (Gen. 19:10). Jude 7 warns that Sodom and Gomorrah “serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.” 1 John 4:1-3 warns of false prophets and the spirit of the anti­christ.
