Jeremiah 5:30-31 An appalling and horrible thing has happened in the land: the prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests rule at their direction; my people love to have it so, but what will you do when the end comes?
Do we see this happening in our land today? Are voices crying out, "Peace, peace", when that is anything but what is on God's mind? The prophets of consumerism urge people on to ever more spending, while the priests of capitalism make money and the people love it so. But where are the prophets of the Lord? Where are God's priests in all this? The time has long gone for standing against the tide and declaring the word of the Lord.
