People were horrified at the sin they saw. They cried out to God. Notice, though, He checked it out for Himself before He acted. God hears our prayers of outrage. He also has infinite perspective, which we do not.

Genesis 18:20-21 
Then the Lord said, “Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great and their sin is very grave, I will go down to see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry that has come to me. And if not, I will know.” -Bible Gateway link: Genesis 18:20-21 ESV

Are you tired of people letting you down? I was too. In a moment of Grace, I realized God never lets me down, and He never changes. That is something I can absolutely trust for eternity. (Also another convergence of New and Old Testament: the writer of Hebrews is quoting Psalm 102:25-28 link below.)

Hebrews 1:10-12 - 

And, “You, Lord, laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and the heavens are the work of your hands; they will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment, like a robe you will roll them up, like a garment they will be changed. But you are the same, and your years will have no end.”

What if we stopped foolish controversies? We might have more time to do what is important: getting closer to God and studying the map for life He provides in the Holy Bible.

Titus 3:9-11 - But avoid foolish controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless. As for a person who stirs up division, after warning him once and then twice, have nothing more to do with him, knowing that such a person is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.
