Re-reading Jeremiah 6, in modern English idioms. Even the original text almost sounds like it was written for today's world - most explicitly, as a condemnation of apostate western churches that embrace the Kinsey myths and LGBTQPIZO lies of our age.
God's threats to Judah for open rebellion and for embracing pure sexual evil most begin to mirror his threats to us today when you begin at verse 7. I've left out only the verses that refer specifically to Judah culture and geography, that aren't universal. The rest of these passages are quite universal.
If you doubt these recontextualizations, feel free to read the original for yourself. Most Bible translations to English will be fairly reliable.
"Like a gushing well, do you spew lies, depravity, twisted arguments, and lawlessness. Many are the victims you leave in the wake of your self-delusion and agenda, as you claim to be victims if ever anyone stands in your way." - 6:7
Case in point: Ryan White, Adam Walsh, the Janczewski family, the Kelins, Elaine Photography, Chik-Fil-A, Family Research Council during the Floyd Corkins incident, etc...
"Keep this crap up, you're gonna be a giant desert full of ghost towns." - 6:8
"There are none so deaf as you who refuse to hear what I have to say. How can I even reason with you? THE truth, my Word, you find offensive! Yet, act unbothered by the offense I take in your attitudes!" - 6:10
Case in point: That Australian soccer player that got thrown out of the sport, simply for quoting from Romans.
"I'm getting real tired of your BS! All ages are gonna suffer when my patience is tried to the last. And each of you who are to blame will know who you are. They will all know it was because of you. But that alone won't save them from suffering." - 6:11
"Prepare to be kicked out of your own houses, as strangers who have only ever done the opposite of earning a right to live there get to occupy your homes in your stead. I'll have them displace you according to my will." - 6:12
Note: Muslimes are already taking advantage in Europe of idiotic programs that allow them "free" housing - by the government outright stealing homes from homeowners, and rendering them homeless. Coveting your neighbor's house? No worries, the government does too! And will help you get that house!
"You reject true ministers of truth, and revel in feel-good false teachers. Prosperity gospel is the closest thing to faith any of you has, and you are filled with endless greed and vanity." - 6:13
Note: How many actual ministers are super popular, versus heretic fraud megachurch pastors like Joel Osteen? Why is it that when the Lefttards want to discredit the ministry, they focus exclusively on the long-compromised Roman Catholic Church? Small reference pools, perhaps?
"They put Band Aids on cancer, calling themselves masters of peace when there is none." - 6:14
Note: Virtue signalling. Even the ancient Judahites were guilty of it.
"When they committed detestable acts, did they feel remorse, even when their actions had victims? Not even close. They reject the very idea that there is value in knowing how to blush. And so they shall expire like the rest. The Lord declares he shall personally see to it they are brought down." - 6:15
Note: "Shame shouldn't have to have any part in anyone's life."- modern LGBTQPIZO statement, made to me by an admitted "pansexual"
"The Lord urges you to stand at the crossroads; learn from history which is a good path to follow. Walk in it, and your soul will find rest in Him. But they refuse to walk that path. Any path, except that one." - 6:16
Note: Ask yourself: why, of all the chicken restaurants with scandalous goings-on, is Chik-Fil-A the one most relentlessly attacked? Why is it "any belief...except that one!"?
Because deep down, the attackers know it's the true path. But they are in rebellion against it. And rebellion yields anger.
"Moral guardians were put in place, to sound the alarm. Yet, they the Lord placed the guardians over determined not to heed the words of these guardians. Instead, to undermine their authority at every turn." - 6:17
Note: Even to this day, moral guardians who don't get every nuance of what they're patrolling perfectly are mercilessly destroyed. And the ones who somehow do? Mocked, belittled, and slandered even more vehemently, with no justification.
"Pay attention, nations of the Earth: their scheming will yield great disaster. I will make sure of it. For they have held my law in contempt; and cared not the harm doing so has caused." - 6:18-19
Note: All nations that embrace gender-fluid ideology perish. Rome did. America and Britain could be next on the historical chopping block.
"The Lord declares: 'Your lip service to me does not amuse me! I will NOT be so easily bribed!!! What kind of dupe do you take me for???' " - 6:20
Note: Churches that push LGBTQPIZO do so in borrowed robes; and speak of "love" and "tolerance" - while showing none to those who uphold God's actual plan and character. They put on huge shows - which only irritate God more.
"They may deny it, but I will put walls in their roads. They and those close to them seeking to get around these walls will do so to their peril. It shall be futility." - 6:21
Note: Every effort to create some new wonder drug to make LGBTQPIZO consequence-free, has only ended in scandal or disaster. Think about that.
"You will not find strength to come together as a mighty nation. Foreign enemies are coming. They are armed. And they will slaughter you without pity. I will not spare the majority of you." - 6:22-23
Note: In spite America's military might, Jihad is already inside us. Like a bacteriophage that has infiltrated a bacterium.
"You will cower to dare even criticize them. Your loved ones will be anxious to walk about in public freely; for they will mow you down for their own amusement." - 6:24
Note: Many parts of Minnesota are no longer safe, due to Somali pirates imported by Obama. And many aren't so much "Islamophobic," as terrified of being punished for simply being accused of it.
"Stroll about, the enemy's blade will find you." - 6:25
Note: In London, casual strolls in the park may lead to you getting a machete to the gut.
"I sought any of them to be pure silver; but they are all bronze and iron instead. Hardened, libelous, malicious rebels. Their every word, deed, and thought is corrupt." - 6:27-28
Note: I have friends who can testify to being victims of the politics of personal destruction. No law designed to protect an individual from such malice seems to matter to those whose minds are corrupted by LGBTQPIZO militancy.
"Men and their arguments seeking to refine and reform they who are fully committed to these wayward paths carry on in vain. Seeking to rid the silver of lead goes nowhere. The evil within refuses to be purged out." - 6:29
Note: I've experienced firsthand that classmates I once knew well, have become obstinate about their new "identity." It is more sacred to them now than all else. They can't even fathom how this is idolatry of self.
"Men try so hard, and go so far to refine them; but in the end, this effort doesn't matter. They are worthless dross. And in time, God too will give up trying to save them." - 6:30
That's right. God and Jeremiah knew Chester Bennington's sense of frustration, thousands of years prior to the fact.
