Micah 3:11-12 Your rulers make decisions based on bribes; your priest teach God's laws only for a price; you prophets won't prophesy unless you are paid. Yet all of you claim to depend on the Lord. "No harm can come to us," you say, "For the Lord is here among us." Because of you, Mount Zion will be plowed like and open field; Jerusalem will be reduced to ruins!
Wow!! Oh wow!! We think in America that we are big and powerful... but we, like Jerusalem could be reduced to ruins in the blink of an eye!! We CAN NOT go about thinking we will be protected by God if we are not doing what God ask us to do. We can't continue to go to Chruch on Sunday and do what ever we please during the week and believe that we are living under God's protection. We are lying to ourselves when we do that...and the lies we tell ourselves are the most dangerous lies of all.
