What has happened in the past is soon to happen again in the future. What happened to Sodom in Abraham’s day, what happened to Jerusalem in Jeremiah’s day is going to happen again in the cities of our world.
“It was not God’s purpose that people should be crowded into cities, huddled together in terraces and tenements. In the beginning He placed our first parents amidst the beautiful sights and sounds He desires us to rejoice in today. The more nearly we come into harmony with God’s original plan, the more favorable will be our position to secure health of body, and mind, and soul.”
