Discussion for Jeremiah 2:11

  • Jdironman for verse 11
    It seems to me it is saying look at those who believe in Gods other than me. Have they changed their ways? Do they not yet still believe? Why have you forgotten me and why do you stray from me? Especially knowing all that he has done, and what he has commanded them.
  • Elder, Rodriguez for verse 11
    It sounds like a people, who have forgotten upon whose name we called and forgotten who it is that has delivered us. Yes right after God has showed his mercy and grace we spit in his face. We disregard all the hurt and pain we were in until we called upon the name of the Lord and he answered but now that we are out of what seems to be immediate danger we for got all about God. The term when the cats away the mouse will play seem to be how we are, yes we've turn are backs on God and started following that other great God the World, all of which man can not serve both. Being true to God will shelter you from a multitude of problem that you will find just living in this wicket world. The reason for the Ten Commandments was to point out the wrong the sin that was in the world and show us what did not please God. We have went right back to where we were suppose to have come out from, God can never be happy with this for the God we serve is a Jealousy God , he deserves the Glory, and as long as we follow him we'll have Glory as well.
