In Matthew 10, as Jesus sends out his twelve disciples on a ministry trip, he tells them that things will not go well for people in the towns that reject his message. He says, “I tell you the truth, it will be more bearable for Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town.” (Matthew 10:15).
What terrible sin did the people of Sodom and Gomorrah commit that caused Jesus to hold them up as the ultimate example of depravity? Were they litterbugs who carelessly dropped candy wrappers on their beautiful streets? Did those scofflaws fail to put coins in the parking meters? Perhaps they defiantly recorded ball games without the expressed written consent of major league baseball!
No, it wasn’t any of those things. The sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was so well-known by everyone that Jesus didn’t even have to name it.
Jesus knew what their sin was.
You do too, if you have enough integrity to admit it.
Let us never condone any behavior that Jesus condemns.
