“Judgment is Overdue”
by Art Sadlier   
December 29th, 2008

There is a striking parallel between Israel prior to the old testament Day of the Lord and North Americans today. Israel had given themselves over to sin and wickedness, over and over the Lord had pardoned and forgiven them, until the day they finally crossed the line of God’s mercy and grace. Jeremiah said of them, “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved”.

Our society has been given over to sin and wickedness, just as Israel in Jeremiah’s day.

The other evening I watched a news special about teen pregnancy. Statements were made that revealed much about our society. It was stated that the abstinance campaign was counter productive, that those who pledge abstinance are more likely to become pregnant, because they had not been instructed in safe sex. There followed a rant that poured scorn upon the whole idea of abstinance. It was stated that 95 % of American adults had been involved in sex outside marriage.

Gay marriage is promoted far and wide, gay rights trump the rights of all other rights. The President Elect of America has chosen a homosexual bishop as has spiritual confidant. Rick Warren has stated that he is opposed to gay marriage but not homosexual partnership. Sodom looks relatively good in comparison to our society.

Fifty million abortions in the last several decades, children designed by God and precious to Him slaughtered in their mothers wombs. The President Elect of America voted in favor of live-birth abortion, babies who were aborted and survived the attempt, killed after their live birth. Inspite of this, Mr. Obama has been, in a recent poll, named by Americans as the most popular man in the world.

Today our T.V screens are filled with sexual innuendo, sex acts and sexual perversion. Our society is totally given over to wicknedness, immorality, drunkeness, drugs, materialism and every kind of perversion.

The Lord said to Jeremiah, about Israel, “Pray not for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble”.

As I look around me I feel like Jeremiah who said, “Oh, that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of my people!”

Judgment on our society is overdue!
