Bike Week is a lot of things to a lot of people.  Cole slaw wrestling at the Cabbage Patch to shooters on Main Street at Dirty Harry’s.  Corporate Harley Davidson to parts and pieces of scooters that anyone can throw together.  Tombstone Gold and Silver.   Outlaw bikers, in law bikers, weekend bikers to hard-core ride anytime bikers.  It seems that they all get to Bike Week in Daytona Beach one time or another.  Rice, American, German…..2 wheels, trikes, tatoos…just everything you can think about.  The city of about 67,000 swells to over 200,000 or more.  Small in comparison to Sodom and Gomorrah.

Now, before you think I am comparing Bike Week with Sodom and Gomorrah,….you are not totally right,….but not totally wrong.  Sodom and Gomorrah was probably 10 times the size of a swollen Bike Week.  And a lot of commerce was handled in S and G. But they had a problem.  They had put all of this before God….and a righteous man, named Lot was there with his family.  The angel of the Lord was leading them out of the Bike Week of Sodom and Gomorrah, out of the cole slaw wrestling, out of the hot dog eating contests….now, I am not saying everything at Bike Week is bad….just select stuff….like in Sodom.

So, Lot and his family is being dragged out by an angel of God and even the new covenant, Jesus himself, tells us to remember Lot’s wife…..who, while being led out of her past, being led out of her failures, being led out of degradation,…..looked back and longed for the past….and she was destroyed. 

Bike Week Daytona Beach 2010.  No Sodom and Gomorrah for sure, … but are we doing what God wants?  Are we being led astray or are we being warned about what we do and how we do it.  I don’t know.  I just know I have been turned away for several years now….I have been remembering Lot’s wife.
