Sodom and Gomorrah were devastated by God with brimstone and fire, according to Genesis 19:24. There are several biblical narratives and religious viewpoints on why Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed. However, Abel Damina, a Nigerian pastor, has offered his side of the tale. Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed, according to biblical narratives such as Genesis, Jude, and Ezekiel, as well as some modern scholars, due to immorality, unnatural desire, vile things, and a lack of hospitality.
And though, as per Abel Damina, the Founder of Abel Damina Ministry and Power City International, Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by God, not because of their sins or immoralities, but because they rejected the Gospel that had been ministered with them for many years, the Gospel of God's son, 'Faith in Christ.'
He later claimed that the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, as well as what happened during Noah's time, were all metaphorical depictions of what will happen on the final day. This was stated by the preacher in response to a query on the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Now, according to Genesis, let us look at the narrative of Sodom and Gomorrah. Although God revealed to Abraham that Sodom and Gomorrah would be destroyed, Abraham begged in defence of the virtuous, particularly his nephew Lot and his household.
Therefore, God consented to preserve the city provided ten righteous persons could be found. Two Angels were sent to Lot in Sodom, but the people sought carnal knowledge of them, according to Genesis 19:5. Only Lot and his family were found to be righteous by the Angels, who advised Lot to flee the city without looking back. Lot's wife looks back as they flee the disaster and is transformed into a Pillar of Salt (Genesis 19:12-29).
