We all appreciate preaching that encourages us.
Preaching that uplifts us.
Preaching that makes us feel good.
I know I do.
The Israelites did too.
In fact, that is the kind of preaching that was in
Jerusalem before it's fall to Babylonia.
The prophet Jeremiah said,
"Your prophets had nothing to tell you but lies;
Their preaching deceived you by never
exposing your sin. They made you think
you did not need to repent."
(Lamentations 2:14 TEV)
That sounds a whole lot like the preaching
in the United States today.
But, will we ever learn from others?
