In reading ]]’s book, ]]. he mentions Sodom as a symbol of how God’s purpose in destruction is redemption.
I will restore their fortunes, the fortune of Sodom and her daughters and of Samaria and her daughters (and I will restore your fortune along with them), that you may bear your shame and be disgraced for all the comfort you brought them. Yes, your sisters, Sodom and her daughters, Samaria and her daughters, shall return to their former state (you and your daughters shall return to your former state). (Eze 16:53-55 NAB)
So, here is the question then. If God promises to restore Sodom to her former glory, after of course, purging her, by fire, of all of her sins – as He did with Israel numerous times – can we count on sinners being purged and then being restored?
And be sure to read Peter’s post on using the bible as a witness to Christianity.
