(17) Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.
(49) Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. (50) They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.
To me these verses speak of an often disregarded aspect of the story Sodom and Gomorrah. Their transgressions were having and living in excess, without regard to the needy. Their leaders shook hands with thieves and held money more highly than the defense of those who could not provide for themselves.
It doesn't take much for me to compare this to present day. To a world where all major cities in the U.S. have horrible problems with homelessness and the government looks out for their pockets and the pockets of corporations before they look out for the people.
Are we living in a Modern Day Sodom and Gomorrah?
