God once delivered a message through His prophet Isaiah to His people, Israel. It reads like this in the New American Standard Bible:
“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight!” (Isaiah 5:20-21)
May I also add a few words from Paul? What am I asking? This is my blog.
Paul described God’s progressive discipline of men and cultures that turn away from Him choosing rather to suppress the truth of God in their unrighteousness.
“Professing to be wise, they became fools” (Romans 1:22)
Our government officials would do well to listen to these words. Unfortunately, many Church leaders so-called would do well to listen to this message also. Calling Tony Campolo, Shane Claiborne, Bill Hybels, Brian McClaren, Rob Bell, Doug Pagitt, Tony Jones, etc., etc., etc., ad nauseam.
Just thinking out loud…or on the internet as it were.
