    "Therefore the law is slacked, and judgment doth never go forth: for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore wrong judgment proceeds." (1:4) We seek the Lord with all our hearts, and endeavor to let our light shine. We pray for our leaders, and for the good to prevail. We help by our prayers, and by our obedience to walk in truth. But the world around us is set on "another" course!

    Israel was told from the beginning, what would happen if they broke covenant with God; but they pushed Him, and pushed Him, with their defiance, and sinning, and whoring after the ways of the heathen, till there was no remedy. Jeremiah wrote, that if God had begun to punish the city which is called by His Name, and His own people; He would certainly also do the same to the nations for their sins.
