Is the world currently Sodom & Gomorrah in the sight of God?

Most definitely! Perhaps that is why Covid-19 is ravaging our planet.

WORSE. By reducing the cities of Sodʹom and Go·morʹrah to ashes, he condemned them, setting a pattern for ungodly people of things to come. Consider what Jehovah did about the bad things happening in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. (Read 2 Peter 2:6-8.) Lot was a righteous man, and he and his family suffered greatly because of all the bad things the people around them were doing. Jehovah destroyed that entire region to end the wicked things happening there. But HE was also “SETTING A PATTERN” for wicked people today. Just as Jehovah ended all the immoral activities back then, he will also end them today when he destroys this present system.Source(s): What Will Go When God’s Kingdom Comes? https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/402017361?q=So...

Pattern of things to come. As God’s chief executional officer, Jesus will hold a worldwide accounting. It will be the same today. Just as it occurred in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of man [Jesus Christ]: they were eating, they were drinking, men were marrying, women were being given in marriage, until that day when Noah entered into the ark, and the flood arrived and destroyed them all. Likewise, just as it occurred in the days of Lot: they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, they were building. But on the day that Lot came out of Sodom it rained fire and sulphur from heaven and destroyed them all. The same way it will be on that day when the Son of man is to be revealed.” In both cases, the normal activities of eating, drinking, marrying, building, and so forth, took on a sinister look because God’s warning was ignored. People failed to notice the significance of what happened to their moral environment. For them it was “business as usual. Their world fell into Moral Bankruptcy which lead to a harsh judgement from Jehovah God. What made the inhabitants so reprehensible in the eyes of God? They were morally bankrupt. Degraded sex practices dominated their way of life. “From boy to old man, they kept calling out to Lot and saying to him: ‘Where are the men who came in to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have intercourse with them [“rape them,” The Living Bible].’” Genesis 19:4, 5 The “we” included the youths as well as the adults! When Jehovah foreclosed on that morally polluted system, only three souls were spared the fiery destruction. Lot and his two daughters. They were spared, because Lot was a “righteous man” “who was greatly distressed by the indulgence of the law-defying people in loose conduct” and refused to copy their debased way of life. 2 Peter 2:7, 8.
What about our day? The moral account of today’s world is completely drained and ready for total foreclosure. In no way can it raise its moral standards. ‘The ruler of this immoral world,’ Satan the Devil, has most of mankind locked into his pattern of misconduct. (John 12:31) They are like passengers on a ship that is on a collision course. Their leaders, like a ship’s captain, are trying to avoid a disaster but cannot. The momentum of the world under Satan’s control makes a catastrophe inevitable.
When Jehovah and his Son Jesus Christ soon foreclose on this world’s immoral system, the account of the righteous will show a credit balance. God will then give them title to life everlasting in a righteous world. Psalm 37:27-29; 2 Peter 2:9. Only lovers of righteousness, like Noah and Lot, can cut out for themselves a different pattern of life a godly one by following the course of moral conduct set forth in the Bible. Will you qualify to be among the righteous?Source(s): jw.org

The fact of the matter: The world is worse than Sodom and Gomorrah, because if Sodom and Gomorrah were here today, they would repent of their sins, but we have the entire bible and we still will not repent for our wickedness, that makes us worse than Sodom and Gomorrah. Matthew 10:15, Ezekiel 16:48-63Source(s): King James holy bible

JUST AS IN THE DAYS OF SODOM AND GOMORRAH, SO SHALL IT BE WHEN I RETURN, SAYS THE LORD OUR GOD, JESUS.

In the sense described by Ezekiel, perhaps a lot of the world is behaving that way. Despite the historical Christian obsession with sexual behavior, Ezekiel tells us the real issue:
Only this was the sin of your sister Sodom: arrogance! She and her daughters had plenty of bread and untroubled tranquility; yet she did not support the poor and the needy. (Ezekiel 16:49)
In other words, they practiced something like an early version of Reagan Republicanism.

There are millions of people working, giving, and acting with love and heroically, but it's a drop in the bucket for the most part, and it's not the people you might know or even think of.

No, God can still find more than 50 good people in the world.

Some currently righteous men of GOD like Lot had been caught and prosecuted for sexual abuse and many religious groups had been caught hiding and protecting those sexual abusers so the Sodom & Gomorrah will mean righteous religious people will get free and some salt
