Ezekiel 16:49, What Was the Sin of Sodom and Gomorrah?

Yesterday, I was a featured guest on Reverend Jesse Lee Peterson’s radio program, a conservative live talk show. I knew before accepting the offer that it wasn’t a good fit for me, but I didn’t quite expect the direction the interview went! Rather than discussing the History Channel’s miniseries on the Bible (the stated topic for the day), the Reverend quickly probed out my liberal bent, and began playing to his conservative audience, on topics such as abortion and homosexuality. I didn’t bite on abortion, so for roughly half the interview, we were stuck on the topic of homosexuality, and a comment that I made about how liberal Christians do not tolerate intolerance.

At the very end of the hour, a caller began yammering loudly about the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah (homosexuality, in his opinion) and how God struck them down with fire and brimstone. Reverend Peterson wisely terminated the interview a few minutes early, before I could address the caller. Probably, he knew his scripture better than the caller, and wished to end the session on a fire-and-brimstone note.

The truth is the Bible nowhere says that homosexuality is the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah. This is a widely-held belief whose basis probably comes from Jude verse 7, though that verse doesn’t address homosexuality, but rather condemns “fornication and going after strange flesh.” However, there is one place in the Bible that gives it to us straight about why God condemned them to death. It’s today’s verse in Ezekiel, and it is God speaking directly:

“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. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.”

So there you have it, from the lips of God. Believe me, Ezekiel was no prude, and he wasn’t just being politically correct. If Ezekiel meant to portray the evil of Sodom and Gomorrah as sexual perversity, he had several colorful words in his vocabulary to do so, and no compunction against using them. But he didn’t.

Let’s be clear: there is an ancient law in the Old Testament that speaks against homosexuality. Christians generally recognize that this law code has been superseded by Jesus. Today, we eat shellfish and wear cotton-blend undies and allow hunchbacks in our holy places. There is a man in the New Testament (Paul) who well understood the change Jesus brought, but who couldn’t seem to let go of this one old law about homosexuality. But let’s get our Bible scholarship right. God didn’t destroy Sodom because it was full of homosexuals; he destroyed it because they held no compassion for the poor and needy. Jesus didn’t condemn homosexuals; he condemned those with no compassion for the poor and needy. If we wish to grow as Christians, under the example and teachings of Jesus, we really need to overcome our homophobia and put our focus where it belongs.


  1. It is unfortunate, but organized Christian doctrine very often does not include such biblical scholarship such as you have done. Rather, doctrine and beliefs stem from decisions and viewpoints from the distant past.

    Much of modern church attitudes on sexual matters stem from St. Augustine, a 4th century bishop that admitted he had major personal problems with sex. His problems with sex were so pronounced that modern-day psychology would list them as obsessive-compulsive and borderline psychotic, but he was still ended up being a major force in shaping both ancient and modern Christian views on sexual matters of all kinds.

    Given the near psychotic attitudes towards sex in general it is no surprise that the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah were declared to be primarily homosexuality.

    Actual research such as you are doing is imperative to break free from the doctrine of the past, doctrine instilled into organized religion as much as a means of control as anything else. Only through research can an understanding of what God desires of us be obtained, for you are entirely correct in what Jesus condemned or did not condemn.

  2. Lee Harmon

    Ah, good old Augustine. For as much as he contributed to doctrinal thinking, he sure had a hang-up about one topic in particular, didn’t he?

    Thanks for contributing, Wilderness!

  3. Michael

    Yes, God destroyed Sodomites because they didn’t help the poor and needy. Good scholarship. Except you ignore the rest: they were “arrogant, overfed and unconcerned…haughty and did detestable things before me”. The chief example of those detestable things would be the mob’s demand that Lot turn over his visitors to them to be abused. That’s not necessarily a condemnation of homosexuality as it is of rape (although Lot does offer his daughters in exchange, so apparently what the mob had in mind was considered even more heinous; admittedly, that heinousness seems to hinge more on hospitality and him protecting his divine visitors than specifics of the abuse). You glob the OT condemnation of homosexuality in the other ‘superseded’ silly laws like shellfish…without any serious consideration whether it belongs in that category or in the timeless category of the Decalogue. Yes, Christ liberated us from the Mosaic law (e.g. kosher, circumcision, purity laws, etc.), but there is no “liberation” from the eternal moral law – lying, cheating, stealing, murder. Fornication obviously falls into the latter category, not the former. You are being disingenuous in your “scholarship.”
    God bless,

  4. Lee Harmon

    Hi Michael, thanks for your input! There is no argument that the Bible speaks harshly against homosexuality. Twice…once in the Holiness Code of Leviticus (not in the Decalogue), and again by Paul. I’m not trying to cover that up. I’m merely adding perspective, and pointing out, for those who choose Jesus as their example, that he seemed unconcerned about our sexual preference. If he cared at all, it was not high enough on his list to mention, and that sounds like a reasonable example for us to follow.

    Anyway, as far as the mob’s demand, we agree that rape is detestable, and you are correct that it’s a more heinous sin than homosexuality, thus more likely to be the sin referenced by the “detestable things” of Ezekiel. It’s not, though, because God had condemned S&G to destruction before that particular event. That was clearly not the reason for their destruction.

    I’m not sure what your point is about fornication, or how it relates to this discussion. Help me out on that one, k?

    • So Jesus, as a practicing Jew, had to mention everything thing that He did and did not condone?

      • Lee Harmon

        I believe Jesus’ example of compassion and acceptance speaks loudly. If he wanted us to override his example, and marginalize this one group of people, then yes I would expect him to say so.

      • Matthew 5:17-20 KJV
        [17] Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. [18] For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. [19] Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. [20] For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

    • Because homosexuality wasn’t a word. 2021

  5. There was nothing in the holiness code that spoke to homosexuality anythinking to the contray is well..just wishful..The big problem with organized religion is the stupidity of their interpretations, never would they let context filter into their rational thinking. The HOLINESS CODE of LEVETICUS is written in context of the time..the words translated as being homosexual does exist in the original dialect.What was talked about there was TEMPLE prostitution, which was solely about cult worship of the god and godess Molech and asthorech by the neighbouring cannannite tribe( remember the jews aledgedly just moved from Egypt to the so called pagan enclave of Cannan). Those codes was/were revealed to guard them from being influenced by the overpowering religion of the cannanites. Even as it is..it very obvious that the Isrealites them selves were very polytheistic at this time(hence their eternal lust for worshipping other Gods aside from YAHWEH)..That is topic for another discussion.

    The fact is .Temple prostitution which was cultic worship of the god and godess Molech and Astoreth had no bearing on what HOMOSEXUALITY IS!… It is even sadder that this temple prostitutes also slept with women( offcourse no one talks about that). It was simple if you want something from the Gods , go sleep with the temple prostitute in cultic worship of the Gods.. This had nothing to do with HOMOSEXUALITY.Which is consenting adults loving each other…I never can understand why people cant get this.

    Just also to mention..In theological circles.the debate is still on who exactly this codes were meant for..was it the nominal isrealites or the priestly class?(the house of LEVI)..the truth is in between

  6. We may say all kinds of arguments with what we believe and what we do not believe? What codes or laws exist! There is only one fact that remains the same, whatever the sins of SODOM and GOMORRAH; Homosexuality was never right in the EYES OF GOD! We can give all kinds of excuses with our sins and justifying ourselves that we are right – it all boils one to one thing – is it righteous before the GOD?

    If we believe in GOD and accept HIS word then we know the answer.

    If we do not believe in GOD and accept HIS word then we know the answer.

    Let me just quote: 1 cor 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

    • Lee Harmon

      Jong, you neglected to provide verses to back up your claim that homosexuality is wrong in the eyes of God. Are you referring to the two places I mentioned: the old testament law and Paul’s opinion?

      • Disciple

        I will assist my bro Jong with the supporting scriptures. I however will not debate the Word of the Living God with you because the Word speaks for itself; and it declares to shun profane and vain babbling: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.(2Tim.2:16) or (Titus 3:9)Avoid foolish questions, and genealogies, and contentions, and stringing about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

        However the Supporting scripture that homosexuality as well as a multitude of other things is a sin is found Romans 1, read the entire chapter, however Romans 1:20-30 May your understanding of the Word of God be made clear today. The Truth shall set you free!
        Version (NIV)

        20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

        21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
        22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools
        23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
        24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.
        25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
        26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones.
        27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

        28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.
        29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips,
        30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents;
        31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy.
        32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

        • Lee Harmon

          :) Yes, Disciple, I agree … as mentioned in the original post, Paul is the New Testament writer who could not see his way past the Old Testament law that Jesus left behind. Sorta sad.

          • So, let me get this straight. Saul hated and was even killing Christians, until Jesus blinded him with His presence. Thus, Saul had the most dramatic transformation to Christianity of anyone, probably ever, and from that time forward he became known as Paul. Jesus used him to preach primarily to the Gentiles (most of us) and God inspired him to pen 13 books of our Bible. All of this, but God made a mistake and Paul went off of God’s perfect path for him and he put his own homophobia into God’s Word? Not possible, because God doesn’t get things wrong and wouldn’t have used him if he was going to twist God’s Word. Just admit it, God loves us all, and He will even save a homo, but it’s the sin He hates, just as other sins, God has always hated homosexuality. And hates it so much he calls it an abomination. So homers, do yourselves a favor, believe Christ died for you and rose again, admit what you do is wrong and try your best to repent. Keep asking Jesus to help you and bury yourselves in God’s Word. Eventually you might make it out, but if not, at least know what you do is wrong and ask forgiveness and stop pretending it’s not sin. If you can’t admit it is sin I don’t see how you can get forgiveness from it.

          • Ok so now you’re just picking and choosing from the Bible…do you believe that the Bible is inspired by God? If so then why are you the one who gets to decide whether or not Paul’s writings are “valid”…you are speculating that “he was stuck in his ways”…you don’t know the guy so why are you making this straw man argument? You are just trying to justify a sin that is now creating a lot of friction with unbelievers and you don’t want to be persecuted so you’re trying to justify that behavior….God chose these authors ok…he wouldn’t have if he knew that Paul would write something that wasn’t inspired by God himself….check yourself and your heart

          • Read Ezekiel 16:50. The word abomination in Hebrew describes the homosexual acts of Sodom and Gomorrah. If you disregard the words of Paul, which were inspired by the Holy Ghost, then you can go ahead and disregard the entirety of the Holy Bible. Jesus himself did address homosexuality by describing creating mankind as both male and female and that marriage is between one man and one woman.

    Michael, Disciple & Jeff…Thank you for your TRUTH backed up with SCRIPTURE..not just your personal input…GOD BLESS

    • I was reading in the book of Psalms this morning and wanted to see any comments on2 Samuel 1:26. Then I came upon this discussion. First of all I appreciate the attitude of all the writers. It sounds like we are all on mutual journey to understand God, His holiness and how to apply it to our lives.

      God’s character of pure holiness is at the heart of his throne. We are caught in a cosmic battle that began in heaven when Lucifer wanted to be higher than his Creator God.

      One day God will make all things new. I agree with Michael, Disciple, Jeff and Jong. Holiness is a mark to always aim for. It is wiser to say in the integrity my heart that homosexuality is just plain wrong and is cheating on a spouse. There is an entire spectrum of sin that does not hit God’s mark of holiness. He knows that we are frail.

      The worst thing for me to do is to fool myself. Jeremiah 17:9 writes, “The heart is more deceitful than anything else, and incurable–who can understand it?” It does not say the heart of the believer, infidel, rich or poor. It is a human condition. We have an enemy, “Be sober-minded and alert. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.” I Peter 5:8

      The soul that is honest with God can say, “God, here I am messed up, yet I recognize that You alone are holy. I have not hit your mark of holiness but recognize it is real, it is absolute, it is about Your Kingdom, Your Character. I invite You to bring about a changed heart in my life.”

      I have not hit God’s Holy mark in many areas and in other areas of my life, by His grace, His love and justice has won me over.

      The beauty of David’s life is that in his writings in the Psalms he continually seeks after the heart of God’s character and holiness.

    still wrong.
    far and above all others, the #1 sin of sodom was the burning to death of children.
    in other words, in this day and age, sodomy is practiced in the hospital, not the bedroom.

  9. There are 749 verses in the NIV version of Leviticus. We have elevated one of those verses to be a Biblical icon while ignoring the other 748, including what was/is most important to Jews, namely, the food laws in Chpt 11 and verses such Lev 19:33, which tells us to treat aliens in our midst as native born. The key question for all of us is “Why have we done that?” Could it be that we have chosen to do so, not because we are biblically-required to do so?

  10. Matthew 19:4 He (Christ Jesus) answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female?” Female and female Union and male and male Union can never produce life; however, they have produced a lot of death. My brother and I were raped by a homosexual and I have known and ministered to hundreds of homosexuals. All have admitted they too were molested by a homosexual as a child. Christ rescued me and I pray that he rescues others from their sins no matter what they may be. The words of Christ, and they aren’t just the ones in red, determine what is and is not sin. Just one sin can send you to hell. Fornication with the opposite sex for instance. Any sexual Union outside of the bounds of marriage between a male and female. Really anyone outside of Christ is going to hell no matter their sins of preference. Matthew 5:27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ 28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body go into hell.

  11. The word translated abomination in Ezekiel 16:50
    תוֹעֵבָ֖ה (ṯō·w·‘ê·ḇāh)
    Noun – feminine singular
    Strong’s 8441: Something disgusting, an abhorrence, idolatry, an idol

  12. union of one man and one woman as the only normative expression of human sexuality. It is incredible to suggest that these words from Jesus have no bearing on the question of homosexuality. They surely do.

    [8] Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren. [9] Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God?

[8] But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. . . .
    [27] And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

    Hebrews 10:26-27 KJV
    [26] For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, [27] But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

    Luke 13:2-5 KJV
    [2] And Jesus answering said unto them, Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? [3] I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

[5] I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

    Acts 26:20 KJV
    [20] But shewed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to God, and do works meet for repentance.

    [21] And lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed.

    2 Peter 3:9-11 KJV
    [9] The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. [10] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

    [19] As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. [20] Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

    Luke 13:23-28 KJV
    [23] Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved?

      [6] And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; [9] The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: [10] But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities. [12] But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption; [13] And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; [14] Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: [17] These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever. [18] For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. [19] While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage. [20] For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. [21] For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. [22] But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

      Jude 1:7-8,10,12-13,16,18-25 KJV
      [7] Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. [8] Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities. [10] But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. [12] These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; [13] Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever. [16] These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men’s persons in admiration because of advantage. [18] How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts. [19] These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. [20] But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, [21] Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life. [22] And of some have compassion, making a difference: [23] And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. [24] Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, [25] To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
