Abraham Intercedes – for Sodom and Gomorrah

God is about to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah because of their great wickedness… but Abraham intercedes…

The men got up, and left towards Sodom. Abraham followed them on their way. Then the LORD said: "Shall I hide from Abraham what I am about to do? He will definitely become a great and strong nation, and all nations of the world will be happy after him, because I have chosen him, so that he will teach his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just. This is how the LORD will fulfill what he has promised to him."

Then the LORD said to him: "Because the outcry is so great against Sodom and Gomorrah, and their sin is so shocking, I have to go down to see if what they have done is really as bad as the outcry I heard. If not, I will know."

Thus, the men turned away and were about to go towards Sodom, but Abraham remained standing before the LORD. He said to him: "O LORD! Are we not all sinners? It is indeed true they are homosexuals, but see, that they all live in such loving-caring relationships that even you approve, and some of them are even serving you in full time ministry. Will you destroy them for such a minor fault when they are so devoted to your service? None of us are perfect, O LORD."

Hearing this the LORD was cut to the heart… and he repented from the evil he was about to do…
