“Judgment is Overdue”
by Art Sadlier   
January 1st, 2009

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 which revealed much about our society. It was stated that the abstinence campaign was counter productive, that those who pledge abstinence are more likely to become pregnant. There followed a rant which poured scorn upon the whole idea of abstinence. According to this special, 95% of American adults had been involved in sex outside of marriage.

Gay marriage is promoted far and wide. Gay rights trump all other rights. The American President-elect has chosen a homosexual biship as his spiritual confidant. Rick Warren 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 slaughtered children designed by God and precious to Him, in their mother's wombs. The American President-elect voted in favour of live-birth abortion.  These are babies who are aborted and, after surviving the attempted abortion, are killed at birth. 

Today our TV screens are filled with sexual innuendo, sex acts and sexual perversion. Our society is totally given over to wickedness, immorality, drunkness, materialism and every kind of evil.

The Lord said to Jeremiah, "Pray not for this people, neither lift up a cry of 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 daugher of my people".
