I looked on the earth, and lo, it was waste and void; and to the heavens, and they had no light. -- Jeremiah 4:23
The picture that Jeremiah drew of God's judgment could easily be a description of a nuclear war followed by a nuclear winter. The earth "was waste and void; and [the heavens] had no light. I looked on the mountains, and lo, they were quaking, and the all the hills moved to and fro. I looked, and lo, there was no one at all, and all the birds of the air had fled ... the fruitful land was a desert, and all its cities were laid in ruins...."
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff. The first generation liberated from Egypt died in the desert because they didn’t learn. And when the people pointed with oohs and ahhs towards current events, Jesus asked them to learn from the past to recognize that some things are not as significant as the eternal choices.
The government has finally woken up to the fact that the health of our children in this country is threatened by their food. For two generations, since World War II, food has become increasingly processed and the era of the fast food meal is well and truly with us.
Karen hates church. She feels it's a place where people are brainwashed. She thinks the people who go to church are weak, looking for a crutch in sermons that tell them how to behave. Karen clearly has an issue with established religion.
