Last week, Greg Boyd tweeted:
I admire the courage of some of our political candidates. Most people avoid public debates even when they know what they're talking about.
I love that quote...

I've been listening to Jeremiah on the Daily Audio Bible for the last couple of weeks. It has been interesting and, as a result, enjoyable. Here is a summary of what I've discovered.
  • Lots of talk of judgement.
  • God "divorced" Israel because of their unfaithfulness to him (idolatry).
  • Both Israel and Judah are referred to as "prostitutes" because of their actions. I found an interesting parallel to the references to the prostitute mentioned in Revelation.
  • There appear to be lots of parallels with Judah and the Church.
  • The deception by false prophets seem similar to some pastors and their congregations.
  • Jeremiah was given the task of wearing linen underwear, then hiding it to let it rot as an illustration to Israel.
