Now this would be simple we think if everyone out there in the world who was laughing us to scorn would helpfully wear t-shirts that said, “We are of the devils party.” Then we would ignore them. Actually, we only think it would be easy to be obedient in such cases, because after a lifetime of soft capitulations you will actually find yourself on Lots front porch, negotiating with thugs over which daughter you would give up first. And even then they will be trying to steer you with their scorn. “And they said, “This fellow came to sojourn, and he has become the judge!” Gen. 19:9, ESV. This mob was there to rape some angels, and they were still speaking down at Lot. His dismissiveness of their deeply held concerns and, um, urges, was, lets face it, devastating and hurtful. At least half of the guys in that mob had been bullied in high school, people.
