That this is a rebellious people,
Children who will not hear the law of the Lord;
Who say to the seers, “Do not see,”
And to the prophets, “Do not prophesy to us right things;
Speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits.
Much like today, the people in Isaiah’s time refused to hear the word of God. Instead, they requested “smooth things” and “prophesy deceits.”
A Christian that proclaims the word of God is labeled as judgmental, intolerant, racist, homophobic, and hypocritical.
Society does not want to hear about sin but would rather hear “there are many diverse ways to heaven and everyone makes it eventually.”
2 Tim 4:3-4 – For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables.
God’s word is salvation.
God’s word is love.
God’s word is life changing.
God’s word is eternal.
Although pleasing to the ears, the ideas of society leads to death.
