Secret Sodomites: Committing Sins Against Your Own Body

Estimated Study Time: 29 minutes

Warning: This article directly discusses the topic of sodomy, human sexuality, words pertaining to these things, and other unclean lusts.

Many people think that sodomites are homosexuals. Well, homosexuals are sodomites, but sodomites are not necessarily homosexuals. In fact, many people, even professing Christians, are sodomites today.

But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly. ~Genesis 13:13 KJV

The Backstory

The Bible tells us, beginning in Genesis 18, that God was on His way to Sodom to destroy it because the cry of it was great. It was the angels of the Lord who arrived, and were greeted by a man named Lot. Lot welcomed them into his home because he felt it was unsafe for them to be on the street of Sodom. In fact, all the men of Sodom from young to old came to Lot’s house and requested that Lot bring them out so that they could “know” them. Now initially, we could take this to mean that they just wanted to meet the new visitors, however, we know there is more to it because Lot offers up his virgin daughters to them so as to protect the visiting men. Then, the men of Sodom threaten Lot’s life and press upon him, but the angels of God grab Lot and pull him inside while striking the men of Sodom with blindness so that they failed to find the door of Lot’s home. Next, the angels tell Lot that he should gather his family and leave quickly because God would destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Of course, then fire and brimstone rained down on the cities and killed everyone, but Lot’s family escaped except for Lot’s wife who was warned not to look back, but she did and thus became a pillar of salt.

Three Things:

1). Read the passage if you like.

Sodom and Gomorrah Destroyed in Genesis 19
[1] And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; [2] And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant’s house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night. [3] And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat. [4] But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: [5] And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. [6] And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, [7] And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. [8] Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. [9] And they said, Stand back. And they said again , This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. [10] But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. [11] And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door. [12] And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: [13] For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord ; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it. [14] And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law. [15] And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city. [16] And while he lingered, the men laid hold upon his hand, and upon the hand of his wife, and upon the hand of his two daughters; the Lord being merciful unto him: and they brought him forth, and set him without the city. [17] And it came to pass, when they had brought them forth abroad, that he said, Escape for thy life; look not behind thee, neither stay thou in all the plain; escape to the mountain, lest thou be consumed. [18] And Lot said unto them, Oh, not so, my Lord: [19] Behold now, thy servant hath found grace in thy sight, and thou hast magnified thy mercy, which thou hast shewed unto me in saving my life; and I cannot escape to the mountain, lest some evil take me, and I die: [20] Behold now, this city is near to flee unto, and it is a little one: Oh, let me escape thither, ( is it not a little one?) and my soul shall live. [21] And he said unto him, See, I have accepted thee concerning this thing also, that I will not overthrow this city, for the which thou hast spoken. [22] Haste thee, escape thither; for I cannot do any thing till thou be come thither. Therefore the name of the city was called Zoar. [23] The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot entered into Zoar. [24] Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; [25] And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. [26] But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. [27] And Abraham gat up early in the morning to the place where he stood before the Lord : [28] And he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the country went up as the smoke of a furnace. ~Genesis 19:1-28 KJV

2). See the historical evidence found in Israel here.
3). The men of Sodom were sodomites. Sodomites committed sodomy. This is why the men asked Lot to bring out the visitors so that they could “know” them.  They wanted to sleep with them.

A personal side note: About 15 years ago, I was horrified as a woman leaned into me and she said, “I wanna ‘know’ you.” I could see what she meant in her eyes as I pulled back with a look of disgust on my face. So apparently, this is a thing.

Don’t be a sodomite.

Definition of Sodomy

: anal or oral copulation (Copulation is sexual intercourse.) with a member of the same or opposite sex; also : copulation with an animal

©2016 Merriam-Webster Dictionary App

As I stated at the beginning, a sodomite is not a homosexual, but rather it is a person who commits anal or oral sex with someone of the same or opposite sex or with an animal. So, homosexuals are sodomites, but so are many heterosexuals.

How Sodomy is Carefully Packaged

<em>Learn how the devil uses the world to encourage sodomy.</em>
Society’s media outlets have taught the world about “foreplay.” Women have been drawn into the lies about re-sculpting their own body—the temple created for the Holy Spirit to dwell in—for their mate’s sexual pleasure. Whether using insecurities or temptation, Satan’s goal is get a person to prove themselves to be desirable so that they open the door to wickedness. The strength of the lies that these people believe send them farther into demonic captivity.

Programming of insecurities starts young:

  • Body Complexes
  • Social rejection by others
  • Programming or manipulation from others
  • Trying to fit in by copying magazine tips, style television shows, or imitating certain girls.
  • Trying to please a boyfriend.
  • Molestation
  • Access to pornography

These beliefs of “not being attractive enough” or “sexy enough,” continue throughout women’s lives because they never grasp that these are carefully-crafted messages from the devil that play upon body insecurities to make one become sensual and sexual, even to abominations like sodomy. Women and men have fallen for the devil’s old tactic to make one prove it. Instead of being a wholesome, godly housewife as God teaches, society has taught that women should show a respectable face to the world, but be a whore (or “ho”) in the bedroom. However, this is not enough for the devil because these respectable-faced women are lured to show the world their sexual power in certain ways to gain broad appeal by dressing or undressing.

Song of Solomon Misinterpretations and Lies

<em>Learn how certain Christians continue supporting sodomy.</em>
Since sex and sensuality sells and people are buying, certain Christians are currently watching pornography in their marriages today.  Some do it because of the misuse of the Song of Solomon scriptures assuming that oral sex is acceptable.

First, when reading those poetic scriptures, Christians must remember to walk in the spirit, not in the flesh and the lusts of it.  The Bible never contradicts itself and if scriptures contradict sounding as though sodomy and orgies are okay for Christians, it is because they are not rightly-divided.  Unfortunately, the eyes of the world want to see acceptable naughtiness.

Shulamite Woman: [16] Awake, O north wind; and come, thou south; blow upon my garden, that the spices thereof may flow out. Let my beloved come into his garden, and eat his pleasant fruits.

Her Beloved: [1] I am come into my garden, my sister, my spouse: I have gathered my myrrh with my spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk: eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved. ~Song of Songs 4:16 – 5:1 KJV

Second, we must also remember that Solomon was the wisest, earthly man who ever lived and he built a temple on earth, which has many similarities to the allegorical descriptions of the Shulamite woman and her beloved. However, Jesus is wiser than Solomon and gives that wisdom to us.  Plus, our physical body is the temple for the Holy Spirit where similar correlations may exist.

Finally, we must also remember that once we come to God by blind faith, after He gives us His Holy Spirit, He expects us to work out our salvation with fear and trembling.  This means that through our walk in the Spirit, we must use our brains to search and understand the scriptures and think by the revelation of the Holy Spirit, which can be prayerfully intensive, extensive, and laborious to decipher this doctorate-worthy poetry.

Homosexuals and Homophobia

<em>Beware of the homosexual rhetoric and acronym.</em>
We also know the statements that homosexuals use to convince the world.  They tell everyone they are “born that way” and that they should be treated as a race.  The book of Romans, chapters 1 and 2, tells us that they became that way because when they knew God, they did not glorify or thank God. They forgot Him. Read more here.

The homosexual also claims that if you don’t agree with their rhetoric, this means you are homophobic. This is also a lie because we do not fear man, we fear God.  If God hates this sin calling it disgusting, we cannot embrace them as “born that way” nor Christians who continue in the same lusts of uncleaness in the church.  If we did pat them on the back telling them it was okay, we would be hypocrites supporting what God views as an abomination.  Our religion is undefiled in Christ, which calls for us to love our neighbors, unlike other religions that would have them killed.  However, those who claim Christ, but live in unclean lusts, need verbal rebuke and separation until repentance.  Ultimately, we will not fall for supporting their lies, which try to change God’s truth into a lie.  Preaching, teaching, and prayer are our weapons in this spiritual battle.

LGBTQ is Rhetoric or LGBTI or LGBBTQQIAAAP (Yes, it is growing.) :

  • Lesbians are female homosexuals.
  • Gays are male homosexuals.
  • Bisexuals are people who lust after both genders usually participating in homosexual acts.
  • Bi-curious are people who know they are heterosexuals, but are tempted to add homosexual acts to their fornicating and unclean, lustful hearts.
  • Transvestites are typically homosexuals, or heterosexual men who dress up as women because they’ve become effeminate.  Women also dress up as men, but usually because they are lesbians.
  • Queers are basically gender-challenged people who identify as genderlessgender-neutral, or dual-gender.  Although, some may not be sexually active, their participation with the homosexual community may tempt them to acts of sodomy with a hetero or homosexual.  (i.e. Ungodly eunuchs or hermaphrodites).
  • Questioning are people who join this group to find answers to their sexuality questions, which tempts them to homosexuality.
  • Intersexual are the same as Queers.
  • Androgenous are the same as Queers.
  • Allies are supporters of this group of homosexuals.
  • Asexual people lack sexual function, which could be Queers. They might be the only ones who are exempt until their affiliation with this group draws them into supporting homosexuality or acts of sodomy.
  • Pansexuals are people who exhibit many forms of sexual expression; are open to an amorous relationship with anyone regardless of their gender or chosen identity.  Basically, this means that they are willing to commit homosexual acts because of their idolatry for unclean lusts.1
  • Omnisexuals are the same as pansexuals.

Don’t fall for the bloated acronym. They are all homosexuals, effeminate, or choosing to thrive among homosexuals rejecting God’s word.  Nevertheless, although we know the facts, let us not use this to judge the world, but warn it. People are slowly trying to take that away from us thinking that warning is judging, but judging in this context is like walking off and scoffing without a care. Warning helps the sinner because you are the light and you care. 2

Before God destroyed Sodom, the angels told Lot not to look back, but to escape for his life. Lot’s wife turned into a pillar of salt because she looked back, which was evidence of her affection for that city of sodomy.  Therefore, don’t look back to these former ways in your life if it be so.

Ungodly, Unclean Lusts of the Flesh

<em>Learn what the Bible says about unclean lusts.</em>
The Bible also makes references to uncleanness, which Romans 1:24 in the KJV describes as “uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves.” Plus, many mentions are made about lust, sensuality, horniness, sleeping around, sex toys, and being filled with sexual desire or showing it.

[5] Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection,3 evil concupiscence,4 and covetousness,5 which is idolatry: [6] For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience: [7] In the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them. ~Colossians 3:5-7 KJV

[2] That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God. [3] For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness,6 lusts,7 excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries: [4] Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you : ~1 Peter 4:2-4 KJV

[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 Corinthians 12:21 KJV

[21] For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries,8 fornications,9 murders, [22] Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: [23] All these evil things come from within, and defile the man. ~Mark 7:21-23 KJV

This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual,10 devilish.11 ~James 3:15 KJV

[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. ~Jude 1:18-19 KJV

[4] That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; [5] Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God: ~1 Thessalonians 4:4-5 KJV

[16] Moreover the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes,12 walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: [17] Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their secret parts. ~Isaiah 3:16-17 KJV

[13] Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering13 and wantonness,14 not in strife and envying. [14] But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof. ~Romans 13:13-14 KJV

For when they speak great swelling words of vanity,15 they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. ~2 Peter 2:18 KJV  (Read all of 2 Peter chapter two that talks about these people.)

[3] But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; [4] Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. [5] For this ye know, that no whoremonger,16 nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. ~Ephesians 5:3-5 KJV

[9] Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, [10] For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers,17 for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; ~1 Timothy 1:9-10 KJV

A whoremonger is a person given to lechery, which is inordinate indulgence in sexual activity.

Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. ~Hebrews 13:4 KJV

This scripture describes God’s marriage to Israel and how Judah played the harlot committing adultery with sex toys.18

[8] And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also. [9] And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom,19 that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks. ~Jeremiah 3:8-9 KJV

What God Says About His Creation:

<em>Learn the truth about human sexuality and gender</em>.

Creation of Humankind by God:

[27] So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. [28] And God blessed them, and God said unto them, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” ~Genesis 1:27-28 KJV

The natural creation of our bodies shows us how God intended for male and female humans to unite and procreate.

Homosexuality comes because of sin, not genes:

Homosexuality originates from the sin of uncleanness. Unclean lusts are the sin of uncleanness.

[21] Because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. [22] Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, [23] And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. [24] Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: [25] Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. [26] For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: [27] And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. ~Romans 1:21-27 KJV

Read more about this here.

A Eunuch a.k.a. Hermaphrodite (i.e., a person who is gender-less, gender-neutral, or dual-gender) is a gender-challenged person because of a birth defect or castration:

These people may be virgins all their lives, but can still become defiled through the sin of unclean lusts.

[12] For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it , let him receive it. ~Matthew 19:12 KJV

Anyone Abusing Themselves with Mankind (Humans) is Unrighteous:

God considers sodomy abusive to the body (e.g. those who “abuse themselves with mankind.”). Many sodomites use their partner’s anal orifice for their sexual pleasure and their mouths consume diseases, mites, and harmful organisms that abuse the systems of their body. Yes, sounds disgusting doesn’t it? This is what makes it an abomination.

Now God made it clear that these acts were unclean, but feel free to read the surgeon general’s report about oral sex and bodily health.

Abuse of mankind also involves sadomasochism, molestation, and rape. Remember, the body was created for the Holy Spirit to dwell in so that we could learn to be righteous in body, soul, and spirit.

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, ~1 Corinthians 6:9 KJV

Demonic Oppression:

The Bible shows us that children can become possessed.  It should not be surprising that some children, who have not been sexually-manipulated by the same gender, may still become possessed with any kind of unclean spirit.  So, if being effeminate is part of someone’s childhood, they may assume they were born that way.

And as He was yet a coming, the devil threw him down, and tare him.  And Jesus rebuked the unclean spirit, and healed the child, and delivered him again to his father. ~Luke 9:42 KJV

Christian Hypocrisy and Punishment

<em>Learn to be holy.</em>
Any Christian accepting these ungodly acts by committing unclean lusts, but at the same time judging those who live homosexual lifestyles, is a hypocrite. If we treat unbelievers with the love of God to help them to see godliness, we must always remember our boundaries and when to draw the line.

People of the Homosexual Lifestyle

Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. ~Romans 1:32 KJV

The Christian Hypocrite lifestyle who does the same and yet, judges the homosexual.

And thinkest thou this, O man, that judgest them which do such things, and doest the same, that thou shalt escape the judgment of God? ~Romans 2:3 KJV

[The list of same things begins at Romans 1:21 KJV]

Therefore, those who ignore God and live ungodly will suffer. The error and punishment of Sodom and Gomorrah is the example of what God will do to those who live ungodly.

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; ~2 Peter 2:6 KJV

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. ~ Jude 1:7 KJV

Where False Beliefs Originate

<em>Learn about supportive strongholds for sodomy.</em>
Many people believe that sodomy is only homosexuality, so they assume they can do what they please with their bodies as long as they are married. This may come from tempting thoughts and church heretics, but it is also coming straight out of the public schools that teach evolution as fact and that people developed from animals. Some animals are asexual, hence, this is used by evolutionists as a possible trait for humans. Most children, and many adults, do not realize that evolution is only a theory and the reason for evolution was to remove God from the equation. Many of these adults actually think there are neanderthal skeletons too, but there aren’t any at all. These are the robust lies born of darwinism by Charles Darwin —a man who lost his faith in God because his daughter died— that contribute to accepting ungodly, sexual lifestyles.

Usually schools teach sexual education in fifth and sixth grade.  We must be aware that not only are schools supporting fornication through “safe sex,” they are adding that homosexuality is normal.  This means that today’s children are being taught that sodomy is acceptable.

Curses Come From Causes

Committing sodomy is an abomination to God. This means that it is disgusting and abhorrent to Him. If we look at how God created our bodies and if we understand the reasons behind washing our hands after going to the bathroom, we ought to be able to figure out the obvious. In fact, it is no secret that the discovery20 of HIV in the U.S. was marked by the sin of one man who was committing bestiality— a form of sodomy— with monkeys before he returned to the U.S. as we saw the initial spread of HIV in homosexuals.  It was a clear curse. Curses come because of causes.

As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come. ~Proverbs 26:2 KJV

So, next time you hear a male pastor preach “uninhibited sex” from the biblical book of Song of Solomon, or you see a physically-secularized female pastor preaching, or you hear the media’s temptations to be a “freak in the bedroom,” or lastly, if you hear anyone claiming that homosexuals are “born that way,” take note of the devil’s worldly lies.  They are in bondage by their lusts of uncleanness, so how can they be trusted?  Yet, if you are in bondage, be set free from the devil and repent.  God is not joking.

The Bible tells us that those who commit the sins of unclean lusts can expand to more ungodliness where people commit sodomy, which opens the door to even more vile21 wickedness. The best thing that you can do as a Christian is to be holy and contend for the truth. If God is your best friend, stand up for His word and share it profusely with prayer to shut down the lies. Living in God’s truth, as an example, stops curses.

    the verses from Jeremia are not about sextoys,they are about idolatry.
    building false gods from stones and wood.Also,you can not using a secular dictionary as a source for biblical truth.if you are going to go by what merriam webster defines as truth then Jesus was just a Jewish religious teacher


      Thank you for your comment. “And it came to pass through the lightness of her whoredom, that she defiled the land, and committed adultery with stones and with stocks.” Yes, this is idolatry, it is also whoredom, and it is also adultery. For instance, in a marriage, a person who commits adultery has left their spouse because adultery also means “to leave” (such as how it is used in the New Testament).

      Secondly, to say that I use a “secular” dictionary for biblical truth is a stretch. Many words in the dictionary are still used that are found in the Bible such as “God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night.” At the same time, a word like “offense” often means to become offended, but it means “to stumble into sin” in the Bible so yes, some words correlate and some do not. Therefore, I agree with you on idolatry, but I also agree that it is a clear show of whoredom because whoredom in Hebrew (zenuth) means fornication, harlotry, and infidelity. Moreover, in the previous scripture right before this, God gives Israel a “bill of divorce.” Therefore, this supports the context further.
