If you were to pick out the most wicked city ever, you might likely say, “Sodom”. After all, Sodom and Gomorrah were so wicked that God wiped them off the face of the earth. He rained down fire and brimstone to destroy them. Moreover, to call a man a Sodomite is one of the greatest insults you can use and the word Sodomy is synonymous with perversion and homosexuality. Can you imagine a people worse than Sodom? Well, God’s prophet, Ezekiel tells us that Judah was worse than Sodom.
