Some Sins Indeed Result In Greater Judgment

The criticism is often leveled that Biblically orthodox Christians are harsher in their judgment of homosexuality than other related carnal sins.

All sins bring judgment.

However, if Christians are guilty of the criticism of which they have been charged, isn't that tendency in part the result of the way the Biblical narrative presents itself?

For example, because of the sin of rampant homosexuality, Sodom and Gomorrah were obliterated from the face of the Earth as result of direct divine intervention in the form of fire raining down from Heaven.

Neither can one find any Biblical figure held in esteem that went through a struggle in which they succumbed to this particular form of temptation.

The same is not necessarily true with those falling into heterosexual adultery.

Take for example King David.

Granted, his family went to pieces following his romp with Bethsheba.

However, these were more the result of the consequences of his own actions rather than direct retribution.

Furthermore, the Scripture at no point invalidates or repeals the appellation of him being a man after God's own heart and the patriarch of the royal lineage through which God's kingdom will have no end.
