|Jeremiah 23:14 |
14 I have also seen a horrible thing in the prophets of Jerusalem. They commit adultery and walk in lies. They also strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that none repents from his wickedness. All of them are like Sodom to me, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem are like Gomorrah."1
1 They commit adultery, and walk in lies. They also strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that none repents from his wickedness. This describes the preachers of Christianity today. They are full of sin themselves, and they strengthen the hand of evil doers by telling them they are saved while still sinning. They say to everyone who walks after the imagination of his own heart, 'No evil shall come upon you.' I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran [to you]. I have not spoken to them, yet they have prophesied. Woe be to the preachers of Christianity today, for I will bring an everlasting reproach upon you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.
