Forgotten Passages

"Sodomite" is the inflammatory label of choice for describing militant homosexuals. But as often the case when pointing the finger, three stare back at you. Consider this forgotten passage from Ezekiel 16:49 (ESV),

Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy. They were haughty and did an abomination before me. So I removed them, when I saw it.

It was apathy for the poor and needy, pride, and prosperous ease that brought the vengeance of the Lord upon the Sodomites. Sound like anyone you know?
