Most Christians know the biblical story of Abraham and Lot. Lot was Abraham’s nephew and righteous Lot traveled where God was leading Abraham. Tension started increasing between the herdsmen of Abraham and Lot so they agreed to part company. Lot and his herdsmen chose to move to the plains where the cities were located. There the herdsmen mingled with the natives and they became influenced by evil people that occupied Sodom and Gomorrah. Abraham stayed in the hill country and walked with God.
Not more than a couple of decades after Lot departed from Abraham, Lot’s herdsmen apparently became part of the problem.
