Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before Me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.” Ezekiel 16:49-50 (KJV)
Those who are always fighting for the “marriage” of same sex couples are bringing up the thought that the Bible does not mention the sin of homosexuality as being the cause of God’s judgment upon Sodom. Well take a look at the above verses.
The “pride” is instantly recognized as setting themselves against the plan of God – going their own way. Pride of that fashion affects the way people handle their blessings; leading to fulness without sharing it with others; forsaking the poor and needy. “Haughty” arrogant attitudes lead to any “abomination” you could imagine. And GOD calls Sodomy/homosexual behavior an “Abomination”. See Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; and Romans 1:25-28, and there are others throughout the New Testament warning of the perils of this kind of rebellion against God.
