2014 is beginning to be one crazy year. With tension rising in the Middle East, protests breaking out globally, government scandals on the rise, and economic problems; things are just beginning to heat up. Americans are no more closer to God than they were last year, and if anything further from him. The sad part is American’s most famous and wealthy mega-church pastors are called to be watchmen, but sadly are miserable failing at their job.
The book of Lamentations tells a story of how pastors allowed sin and iniquity into their lives, and as a result they opened a door for Babylonian soldiers to invade Jerusalem and take the city.
“The kings of the earth, and all inhabitants of the world, would not have believed that the adversary and the enemy could enter the gates of Jerusalem. It was for the sins of her prophets and the iniquities of her priests….” (Lamentations 4: 12-13)
