Counsel Between Friends
While on their way to judge Sodom and Gomorrah the Lord and His angels stopped at Abraham’s encampment. Sodom and Gomorrah had become the most wicked cities on the face of the earth. A grievous cry against the people of this valley had reached the throne of God and come before the face of the Lord. Genesis 18:20 tells us, “The outcry of Sodom and Gomorrah is indeed great, and their sin is exceedingly grave“. In these cities, perversion was not only permitted but was also encouraged and promoted. Romans 1:32 and Hebrews 6:4-6 describes such behavior as representative of a debased mind, a mind that is reprobate…so seared that it is impossible to renew it again to repentance. The bowl of iniquity hanging over Sodom and Gomorrah was full, and God was about to allow them to reap what had been sewn, but on His way to judge, God stops to discuss His plans with Abraham. Why?
