Isaiah 1: Wash and make yourselves clean.
Take your evil deeds out of my sight;
stop doing wrong.
17 Learn to do right; seek justice.
Defend the oppressed.[a]
Take up the cause of the fatherless;
plead the case of the widow.
18 “Come now, let us settle the matter,”
says the Lord.
“Though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red as crimson,
they shall be like wool.
19 If you are willing and obedient,
you will eat the good things of the land;
20 but if you resist and rebel,
you will be devoured by the sword.”
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.
The failure of teaching has come home to roost. We are seeing the degradation of Western culture in a tidal wave of inconceivable proportions. We have totally misunderstood the concept of freedom and have thrown out the idea of liberty and replaced it with license. “Do what you want.” Go ahead, rewrite history.” Black is white, white is black, we are living in the worst kind of Voltairean farce imaginable. The worst thing about it all is that we have no one to blame but ourselves. If we look at the whole first chapter of Isaiah first from a personal standpoint, then from a cultural standpoint we will certainly find ourselves condemned and guilty.
Is there a practical solution to all of this?
Yes, I believe there is. The idea of Christian education could be reinvigorated and infused with power in the churches and homes of Christians with the end being similar tp the story of the little Dutch boy sticking his finger in the hole in the dike. He prevented, at least for that moment a destroying flood. Imagine, if you can, several million little fingers in the thin wall separating us from certain destruction.
