Walking Through Genesis- Chapter 19

Chapter 19 is perhaps one of the saddest chapters in the Bible. The destruction of the cities is bad enough, but Lot’s own love for the city as well as the sinful acts of his two daughters causes us to wonder how the Bible could refer to him as “righteous Lot” (See 2 Peter 2.7). Additionally, the utter depravity of the men of Sodom is explicitly seen. And again, Lot’s own wickedness is displayed in the offering of his two virgin daughters to the men for sexual gratification. The entire chapter from beginning to end is sickening. Let us take the lesson that being with the wrong influences can lead us as believers to commit the same sinful actions.
