Do Not Be Like Lot: Genesis 19 and Sodom

This story is as much about Lot as it is about the Sodomites that God destroyed.
Don’t be like Lot. Lot called the Sodomites “brothers,” but they the Sodomites only considered lot one of them as long as he remained silent and accepting of their evil.

Flee Sodom by raising your voice against evil.
Do not be like Lot and hesitate.
Do not look back and long for that false unity and false peace.

Lot, though his soul was righteous, had an earthly legacy of two evil nations, Ammon and Moab.  Why? Because he made friendship with the world a higher priority than resisting evil.

Lot was sent to Sodom to testify against it.  Instead, he embraced the “diversity,” and practiced “tolerance.”  Don’t be like Lot.

Psalm 94:16. Who will rise up for me against the evildoers?
Who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
