Notes for my writing

This blog is made up of notes on the gospel as found in the only true and living church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This includes notes that are either excerpts from or ideas for books I either have in draft or may yet write.

The men of Sodom threatened Lot because they said he was judging them

Given the scouting decision, we read Genesis 19 today for family scripture study. I hadn't realized that the men of Sodom say of Lot "This one man came in to sojourn among us, and he will needs now make himself to be a judge; now we will deal worse with him than with them."

Interesting that the great offense in their city is to "judge" them. Lucifer stirs his followers up against anything that might separate him from them. And his followers hate the truth because it attempts to separate them from their sins. Christ put it this way:

John 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
