Jeremiah 5:  What will you do in the end?

The prophets prophesy falsely, And the priests rule by their own power; And My people love to have it so. But what will you do in the end? Jeremiah 5:31

None righteous; 5:1-31 Jeremiah searches desperately through the streets of Jerusalem for one righteous person.  But there is none to be found.  Judgment on such a nation and people is a moral necessity!  Like a ravaged grape arbor, or a woods consumed by a forest fire, Judah will crumble.  Yet even the coming cataclysm will not destroy all.  When at last God’s people, captives in a foreign land, pause to ask “Why?” they will recall Jeremiah’s message.  The judgment has come because Judah forsook the Lord to serve foreign gods, and as a result slipped into a life of wickedness and evil.

⇒ Now I understand why Jeremiah was a “weeping” prophet.  All Christians should be weeping like him in this post-Christian times.
