In 2022, Americans have a fascination with sinful behavior.
So much so that American tourist hotspot, Las Vegas, has been referred to as “Sin City” AND “American Babylon.”
And while IN MORE ‘NORMAL’ TIMES, foreigners may flock to Las Vegas, it is Americans who prop up the city and its depravities–particularly during the ‘pandemic.’
Largely because of suppressed international travel since the onset of the pandemic in early 2020, nearly all visitors to Las Vegas last year  were U.S. residents.

Which means that in 2021, nearly 32 MILLION Americans took a stroll on the giant parking lot of sin called Las Vegas.
A little background on Las Vegas follows.
Las Vegas (/lɒsˈveɪɡəs/; Spanish for “The Meadows”), often known simply as Vegas, is the
25th-most populous city in the United States, the most populous city in the state of Nevada, and the county seat of Clark County. The city anchors the Las Vegas Valley metropolitan area and is the largest city within the greater Mojave Desert.
 Las Vegas is an internationally renowned major resort city, known primarily for its gambling, shopping, fine dining, entertainment, and nightlife. The Las Vegas Valley as a whole serves as the leading financial, commercial, and cultural center for Nevada.
The city bills itself as “The Entertainment Capital of the World” href=”https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Entertainment_Capital_of_the_World”>The Entertainment Capital of the World, and is famous for its luxurious and extremely large casino-hotels together with their associated activities. It is a top three destination in the United States for business conventions and a global leader in the hospitality industry, claiming more AAA Five Diamond hotels than any other city in the world. Today, Las Vegas annually ranks as one of the world’s most visited tourist destinations. The city’s tolerance for numerous forms of adult entertainment earned it the title of “Sin City“, and has made Las Vegas a popular setting for literature, films, television programs, and music videos.
Why do Americans visit Las Vegas and gamble away their money there?
America has long been marketed as a place where a person can make money.
It was NOT ‘religious freedom,’ or ‘liberty,’ or any other intangible which drove MILLIONS of foreigners to the shores of America: it was OPPORTUNITY.
As in, OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE MONEY.
And, if one has accumulated wealth, then one looks around for ways to spend that accumulation.
Enter Las Vegas–a metropolis founded upon the town’s ability to relieve visitors of money in their pockets–which rather quickly LEGALIZED activities known as “CRIME” elsewhere.
Legalized hula hoops (except on Freemont St.).
Of course, Las Vegas–like all places that adore sin–will suffer end time degradation. That this degradation has NOT happened YET does not mean it will not happen at all.
HAS the reader EVER been to Las Vegas?
WAS the reader impressed or depressed by what he encountered?
DOES the reader believe Las Vegas is Sin City or American Babylon?
It is not YET too late: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
