    Ezekiel 16

    48 As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign Lord, your sister Sodom and her daughters never did what you and your daughters have done.

    49 “‘Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.

    A city, a state, a nation, a government can be guilty of not helping the poor and needs and God will punish.

    Maybe as a country, a government we should be more concerned about helping the poor and needy and less concerned about killing foreigners.

    I'm all for feeding the poor but find that many of those I've encountered are opportunistic nare-do-wells driving a better car than I do with 'pot' in every pocket and a big screen TV on the wall.
