commentary: Are Things That Bad?
Why I Do the Commentaries
John W. Ritenbaugh
Given 11-Dec-10; Sermon #1023c; 13 minutes
John Ritenbaugh, focusing on the blessings and cursings chapter in Deuteronomy 28 and Jeremiah's dire warnings, observes that God will destroy what He has planted if what He has planted bears evil fruit. There are no hollow threats with God Almighty. God will destroy disobedient people with the diseases of Egypt, cutting down our life- expectancy. The prophets of God brought primarily bad news, warning of pending doom as consequences of sin. The American government has shamelessly defied God's commands, and are bringing wrath down on this country. We must learn to avoid their shameful example, seeking to govern ourselves responsibly.
