Bible Q

Why wasn’t Lot turned into a pillar of salt?

Two reasons why Lot wasn’t destroyed: A) for Abraham’s sake (Genesis 19:29); B) Lot didn’t enjoy being there, it was agony to him (2 Peter 2:7-8). Lot pleaded with his family all night to go with the angels (Genesis 19:14-15) but they didn’t want to leave. Lot was hesitant to go because he knew his family didn’t want to — a difficult decision. Once Lot’s wife was turned into a pillar of salt, he went to the mountains where the angels originally told him to go (Genesis 19:17,26 & 30).
