We hear: “Lot is a picture of the Church.” …Really?

Rightly dividing scripture… a labor of love.

“Be careful little ears what you hear.”

Which biblical member(s) do these attributes describe?

  • Called of God
  • Given a Covenant by God
  • Obedient to Gods Covenant
  • In communion with and worshiping God, truly
  • A Witness to the ungodly
  • Promised great things
  • Living in a land that is not his/theirs, separated, apart
  • Given awareness and assurance of the coming destruction of the wicked
  • Intercedes with God for the preservation of the righteous

Something to consider — If Abraham is a type of the Church? Who does Lot picture?

(Answer: It can’t be the Church.)

Clue — The survival of three people from the destruction of Sodom is the very definition of a ‘remnant.’

Clue — Lot was not serving God under the Covenant of God.

Clue — Lot was related to Abraham how? A ‘branch’ that wasn’t producing fruit?

We are confounded that these critical insights escape our teachers — in the midst of reading Genesis 18 & 19!

Being Berean means that we don’t let the truth escape our appreciation in favor of following, even fawning over – the men appointed into the role of our teachers.

But we LOVE them none the less!

“As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” Prov. 27:17
