As dawn breaks on the valley, fire and brimstone rain from heaven upon the former home of Lot and his family. Why would God do this?

About the series
The Book of Genesis is the starting point of God’s covenant with His people. This book gives us the historical sketch of the creation, fall, and redemption of the world. Genesis is also a perfect litmus test to gauge whether or not a person fully trusts in the authority, sufficiency, and inerrancy of Scripture.
