Genesis 19:22-24[b][size=medium][color=0000FF][font=Helvetica]22 But run there fast, because I cannot destroy Sodom until you are safely in that town."[/font][/color][/size][/b] (That town is named Zoar, because it is little.)23 The sun had already come up when Lot entered Zoar. 24 The Lord sent a rain of burning sulfur down from the sky on Sodom and GomorrahNew Century Version Question What do you think would happen if we got all the Christians out of a Town or City?Would the Town be spared? Or would swift destruction overtake the Land?
Now that's an interesting question.
I was listening to [url=http://188.8.131.52/sermons/SID4422.mp3]The Man Behind the Message by Keith Green[/url]and then I heard it..Luke 51-5651 Now it came to pass, when the time had come for Him to be received up, that He steadfastly set His face to go to Jerusalem, 52 and sent messengers before His face. And as they went, they entered a village of the Samaritans, to prepare for Him. 53 But they did not receive Him, because His face was set for the journey to Jerusalem. 54 And when His disciples James and John saw this, they said, Lord, do You want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them, just as Elijah did?55 But He turned and rebuked them, 2and said,[b][size=small][color=FF3300]You do not know what manner of spirit you are of. 56 For the Son of Man did not come to destroy mens lives but to save them.[/color][/size][/b]And they went to another village.So I have to say I should not try and concive of a way to destroy the Wicked but to abide with the Will of my Master and Pray to Save them.In Christ MichaelPS. Every SI Member should Listen to the Keith Green Message above. I know I needed to hear it.
Question What do you think would happen if we got all the Christians out of a Town or City?
'Frisco makes me think of Jonah before his gourd wilted! :-x Lot's of folks there in Nineveh don't know their right from their left!Later, they got whacked (the Medes?)...
"And they went to another village"That is something isn't, after Jesus rebuked them for saying that they know not what spirit they are of, yet when Lot came out of Sodom, he went into another village.Nice!Karl
North America didn't have any Christians prior to the Europeans coming, yet it wasn't a smoking hole when they got there... Just my thoughts.Dan/\/\/\

Have you ever read the book "eternity in thier hearts"? It was discovered that the early american indians actually knew of a god that resembled the resurrected Christ and they had records that talked about the great flood. Many primitives have similar records and some missionaries report how surprised they are to find that somehow God has already been in these places before them. Any how, it worth while reading.
