What are you Parading? September 3rd, 2018
Everybody loves a parade! The prophet Isaiah addressed the degradation & defiance of Judah as they rebelled against God & turned to heinous sins. “…they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it.” (Is 3:9) Sodom was a place of open & acceptable sexual deviancy. Unlike Adam & Eve who hid from God after they sinned; Judah did not hide but proudly & openly flaunted their sin. In our society today, sexual debauchery is paraded, publicized & celebrated but it matters not if man parades & promotes their sin 3,000 years ago or today… God’s standards & perspective hasn’t changed. The message is still the same for today, “Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.”(3:9) I can honestly say… I don’t always like parades.
