Moral Perversion, The
Roles abuse Before Lot and his guests could go to bed, every man in Sodom, young and old, came and stood outside his house and started shouting, Where are your visitors? Send them out, so we can have sex with them! Lot went outside and shut the door behind him.
Then he said, Friends, please dont do such a terrible thing! I have two daughters who have never been married. Ill bring them out, and you can do what you want with them. But dont harm these men. They are guests in my home. Dont get in our way, the crowd answered. Youre an outsider.
What right do you have to order us around? Well do worse things to you than were going to do to them. The crowd kept arguing with Lot. Finally, they rushed toward the door to break it down. Genesis 19:5-9
After he and Aaron had gathered the people around the rock, he said, Look, you rebellious people, and you will see water flow from this rock! He raised his stick in the air and struck the rock two times. At once, water gushed from the rock, and the people and their livestock had water to drink. Roles Abuse.
But the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, Because you refused to believe in my power, these people did not respect me. And so, you will not be the ones to lead them into the land I have promised. The Israelites had complained against the Lord, and he had shown them his holy power by giving them water to drink. So they named the place Meribah, which means Complaining. Numbers 20:10-13
Corrupted ordinances Elis sons were priests, but they were dishonest and refused to obey the Lord. So, while people were boiling the meat from their sacrifices, these priests would send over a servant with a large, three-pronged fork.
The servant would stick the fork into the cooking pot,
and whatever meat came out on the fork was taken back to the priests. Roles Abuse.
That is how these two priests treated every Israelite who came to offer sacrifices in Shiloh. Sometimes, when people were offering sacrifices, the servant would come over, even before the fat had been cut off and sacrificed to the Lord. Then the servant would tell them,
The priest doesnt want his meat boiled! Give him some raw meat that he can roast! Usually the people answered, Take what you want. But first, let us sacrifice the fat to the Lord.
No, the servant would reply. If you dont give it to me now, Ill take it by force. Elis sons did not show any respect for the sacrifices that the people offered.
This was a terrible sin, and it made the Lord very angry.
1 Samuel 2:12-17
Your worship services do you more harm than good. I am certainly not going to praise you for this. I am told that you cant get along with each other when you worship, and I am sure that some of what I have heard is true. Roles Abuse.
You are bound to argue with each other, but it is easy to see which of you have Gods approval. When you meet together, you dont really celebrate the Lords Supper. Roles Abuse.
You even start eating before everyone gets to the meeting, and some of you go hungry, while others get drunk. Dont you have homes where you can eat and drink? Do you hate Gods church? Do you want to embarrass people who dont have anything? What can I say to you? I certainly cannot praise you. 1 Corinthians 11:17-22
Perverting truth The Lord is especially hard on people who disobey him and dont think of anything except their own filthy desires. They are reckless and proud and are not afraid of cursing the glorious beings in heaven. Although angels are more powerful than these evil beings, even the angels dont dare to accuse them to the Lord. Roles Abuse.
These people are no better than
that live by their feelings and are born to be caught and killed. They speak evil of things they dont know anything about. But their own corrupt deeds will destroy them. They have done evil, and they will be rewarded with evil. They think it is fun to have wild parties during the day. They are immoral, and the meals they eat with you are spoiled by the shameful and selfish way they carry
All they think about is having sex with someone elses husband or wife. There is no end to their wicked deeds. They trick people who are easily fooled, and their minds are filled with greedy thoughts. But they are headed for trouble! They have left the true road and have gone down the wrong path by following the example of the prophet Balaam. He was the son of Beor and loved what he got from
being a crook. Roles Abuse.
But a donkey corrected him for this evil deed. It spoke to him with a human voice and made him stop his foolishness. These people are like dried up water holes and clouds blown by a windstorm.
The darkest part of hell is waiting for them.
They brag out loud about their stupid nonsense. And by being vulgar and crude, they trap people who have barely escaped from living the wrong kind of life.
They promise freedom to everyone. But they are merely slaves of filthy living, because people are slaves of whatever controls them. When they learned about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they escaped from the filthy things of this world. But they are again caught up and controlled by these filthy things, and now they are in worse shape than they were at first. Roles Abuse.
They would have been better off if they had never known about the right way. Even after they knew what was right, they turned their backs on the holy commandments that they were given. What happened to them is just like the true saying, A dog will come back to lick up its own vomit. A pig that has been washed will roll in the mud. 2 Peter 2:10-22
