On fires, same-sex marriage

I recently read the response from my neighbor concerning my letter about fires and same-sex marriage, and I would like to address some issues.

First, I never made a claim whether or not God was punishing California for same-sex marriage. I simply reported factual events and left it up to the readers to conjecture for themselves God’s involvement. Hence, “Could there be a link between these events?”

Second, all sins are eternal offenses against an eternal God (murder, lying, stealing, coveting, dishonoring parents, blasphemy, and heterosexual or homosexual fornication).

Last, the Bible states that the Lord Jesus will return “in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes in that Day” (2 Thessalonians 1:8-10).
