“Your leaders, the princes of Israel among you, compete in crime.  You’re a community that’s insolent to parents, abusive to outsiders, oppressive against orphans and widows.  You treat my holy things with contempt and desecrate my Sabbaths. You have people spreading lies and spilling blood, flocking to the hills to the sex shrines and fornicating unrestrained.  Incest is common. Men force themselves on women regardless of whether they’re ready or willing.  Sex is now anarchy. Anyone is fair game: neighbor, daughter-in-law, sister.  Murder is for hire, usury is rampant, extortion is commonplace.

And you’ve forgotten Me.” Ezek 22:6-12

“One generation passes away, and another generation comes.” Eccl 1:4

2013— New names — old ways.

Cast away from you all the transgressions which you have committed, and get yourselves a new heart and a new spirit. For why should you die, O house of Israel? For I have no pleasure in the death of one who dies,” says the Lord God. “Therefore turn and live!” Ezek 18:31-32
