Worse than sodomy!
(Thomas Brooks, "The Crown and Glory of Christianity,
or, HOLINESS, the Only Way to Happiness", 1662)
"If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words,
shake the dust off your feet when you leave that house
or town. I assure you: It will be more tolerable on the
day of judgment for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah
than for that town." Matthew 10:14-15
Sodom and Gomorrah shall have an easier and cooler
hell than such shall have—who have despised the offers
of His grace, and the offers of His mercy. Contempt of
Christ and His gospel—is worse than sodomy!
"Then the Lord rained down fire and burning sulfur from
the heavens on Sodom and Gomorrah!" Genesis 19:24
The punishments of Sodom and Gomorrah, are but scratches
on the hand, and flea-bitings—compared to those dreadful and
astonishing judgments which God, in the great day of account,
will inflict upon all Christ-refusers and gospel-despisers!
"Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever
rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on
him." John 3:36
