MORNINGTIME 2183
 
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. LIKEWISE ALSO THESE FILTHY DREAMERS DEFILE THE FLESH, DESPISE DOMINION, AND SPEAK EVIL OF DIGNITIES. Jude 1:7-8. Sodom and Gomorrha is NOT about gay bashing, it IS about sin bashing. Here are more sins right up there with fornication. Filthy dreamers, and on. We've covered "defiled the flesh", so let's look at "Despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities". Among many other things, this is about people having trouble with Authority over them. For example, a policeman has authority over you, our President has authority over you, as do a lot of other people and organizations. Worldly people are selfish, some more than others. Some self-ish people will give and take, and  compromise, to get what they ultimately want. But some people are so Self oriented, so SELF-ISH that EVERYTHING they want is totally for their Self, and it HAS to be done their way, in their time, according to their plan. ANYTHING less than that is unacceptable. And because they can't get it their way all the time, they find that everyone else is at fault for them not getting what they are supposed to have, what they deserve, WHAT'S THEIRS. Everyone else is to blame for their lack, so everyone else is grumbled, complained, and ridiculed about incessantly. Their complaining never ends, it just seems to go on forever. You can't talk any sense to these people because they are sense-less. They have no common sense, and no sense of right and wrong, (unless it's their definition of right and wrong), because everything and everybody is against them. They are miserable people and will gladly make you that way too. Unless, and until, you share Christ with them, and He changes them, to be like Him, and then they will, Be Blessed.
