I think it goes without saying that God had the means to do mighty works in Tyre, Sidon and Sodom. It could be argued that God had the motive, at least according to a free-willer's all-inclusive interpretation of 2 Peter 3:9. Here Jesus is saying that IF the mighty works were done in Tyre, Sidon and Sodom, they would have repented. Yet, clearly, God did not do the mighty works that He says would have brought these places to repentance, and these places perished. Means and motive, but no action. Why not?
