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.
