By ancient custom, the visitors were under Lot's protection.
SODOM WEB SQUAD (german)
Lot was so infected by the wickedness of Sodom that he offered the homosexuals his two virgin daughters instead. Furious, the mob rushed up to break down the door. The angels struck the rioters blind. Leading Lot, his wife, and two daughters by the hand, the angels hurried them out of the city. Lot and his family fled to a tiny village called Zoar. The Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah, destroying the buildings, the people, and all the vegetation in the plain.
Similar to the time of Sodom and Gomorrah, evil is all around us in today's society, from lying and stealing to pornography , drugs, illicit sex , and violence. God calls us to be holy people set apart, not influenced by our wicked culture. Sin always has consequences, and you should take sin and God's wrath seriously.

God was mercifully willing to spare the cities for the sake of a few righteous people, but none lived there. The Bible tells us all the inhabitants were depraved. One of the reasons God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah was because he did not want the Jews to be influenced by this evil.
As the Creator of all things, God has the divine right to destroy evil as he sees fit. Lot and his family were spared, but his future sons-in-laws were destroyed because they thought Lot was joking about God's wrath. Millions of people today think God and sin are things to joke about. God does exist, and he does punish unrepentant sinners.
