|Jeremiah 5:28-32 |
28 They are waxen fat, they shine. Yes, they surpass the deeds of the wicked. They do not judge the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; and the right of the needy they do not judge.
29 Shall I not visit you for these things?" says the Lord. "Shall not my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
30 An amazing and horrible thing is committed in the land;
31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their own means [authority]; and my people love to have it so;4 but what will you do in the end of it?"
4 The prophets prophesy falsely. To prophesy is to preach; to instruct in religious doctrines; to interpret or explain Scripture or religious subjects; to exhort. 1 Cor 14:1-3. Every minister who teaches in error is a false prophet. Today's ministers are not only false prophets, but they rule over their flock through their position of supposed authority — and the people love it that way. Woe to the people, for they shall be held accountable for their foolish listening to lies that are contradicted throughout the Bible and that go against common sense. And what will you do in the end of it?
