Biblical Connection

Genesis 18 1-33 , "I have heard how terribly evil the people are who live in Sodom. If it is true, then I will destroy that place". This old testament story is about God's position on sin. God was upset with the people in the town of Sodom, God's solution was to destroy this city, but Abraham believed with all his heart that there was still good people in this city. God sent two arch angles to find at least ten good people then he will save Sodom. They only found four, Lot, Sarah and his two daughters, who welcomed these strangers into their home and treated them kindness. The arch angles left and reported back to God and Abraham that they could only find four good people in that. The Arch Angels where sent back to warn Lot and his family of God's decision to destroy the city. Lot did not want to leave Sodom but the Arch Angels took him and his family to the city gate and told them to run as fast as they can and not look back. Sarah looked back and turned into a pillar of salt, while lot and his daughters continued on.
