10. For the land is full of adulterers; for because of swearing the land mourneth; the pastures of the wilderness are dried up. And their course is evil, and their might is not right;

11. for both prophet and priest are profane; yea, in my house have I found their wickedness, saith Yahweh.

12. Wherefore their way shall be unto them as slippery places in the darkness: they shall be driven on, and fall therein; for I will bring evil upon them, even the year of their visitation, saith Yahweh. (Jeremiah 23)


It's time for repent and time to turn from sins

Time is running out for repentance because people nowadays love darkness (sin). Remember the people of Noah's generation because God's forbearance eventually comes to an end.

Genesis 6
11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.
12 And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.
13 And God said unto Noah, The end of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

Absolute and utter hogwash not nested in any historical fact.

It’s getting different. Let’s be clear: The doom and gloom about changes in the world around us is little more than a lack of historical understanding. I’ve heard people getting all upset because divorce rates, homosexuality or America being less religious than it was supposedly founded to be. Read the part of the story that came before you. Women originally weren’t able to vote or take care of themselves without a man.

It used to be legal—even expected—that we’d treat someone differently based on the color of their skin. Neither of those issues are close to resolved today, but it wasn’t that long ago that we weren’t even trying to fix them.

The more we talk about the ever-increasing sin in the world the more we reveal our lack of historical understanding. Let’s take it back to Jesus’ day, and the world the Church was born into. It was not uncommon for Roman men to have three women in their lives: the first was a wife to produce a legal heir. He probably didn’t care much for her. She existed to provide a noble child to carry on his line.

He also had an escort who he would take to parties and fancy events. She was proverbial arm candy. Her job was to look good and to be fun. The third woman was a prostitute who was used solely for sex. At the time, they didn’t even consider it adultery. Sex was a biological need, like eating. Seeing a prostitute was like having dinner. A lot of Roman men would also have a young boy that they mentored. Part of that relationship was sex. That was common and acceptable social practice.

It wasn’t just the Romans. The Greeks had a goddess named Artemis. Artemis was the goddess of fertility. If you wanted to worship Artemis, you would go up to her temple and engage in an orgy. The sin we see around us isn’t new. The world isn’t more sinful today than it was 10 years ago or 2,000 years ago. It’s sinful. It’s always been sinful. It’s just expressed differently.

WHOA there FEAR MONGER!

THY WILL BE DONE ON EARTH AS IN HEAVEN??

Actually we DETEST the perverted interpretation being spewed by evangelicals as truth when it is nothing but FEAR and MANIPULATION of the confused who have not learned it is OK to not only question, but CHALLENGE modern day PHARISEES.
