“Well, ya see, all religions, like, they’re all true and it don’t matter what you believe or what you worship, as long as you’re sincere… so you can worship stuff like this!”
My daily Bible reading this morning brought me to this verse, Malachi 2:17–
Ye have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied Him? when ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and He delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?
Through the prophet Malachi, God aimed this rebuke and warning at the church leaders of those days, the priests of the Temple in Jerusalem.
“Hmmm, let’s see, what can we do to get with the times? And win some worldly praise! How about some gay marriages? We can say the Bible’s wrong about that. Ooh-ooh! How about this–bring an effigy of an Amazon river goddess into the holy place and have the clergy treat it as if it were really some kind of deity?”
Can today’s churchmen, who make it all up as they go along, honestly believe that God is pleased with them? And yet they ask, “Where is the God of judgment?” Which means, “See? We’re getting away with it! God won’t stop us!”
Yo, sunshine! Do you think God won’t judge you? Do you think he sees the things you do, and hears the things you say, and takes delight in you?
He’s talking to you, babe. And you’d better listen.
