This Modern Condition
A Sermon on Isaiah 5:8-10
Woe to the Wicked
Woe to those who join house to house,
who add field to field,
until there is no more room,
and you are made to dwell alone
in the midst of the land.
The LORD of hosts has sworn in my hearing:
“Surely many houses shall be desolate,
large and beautiful houses, without inhabitant.
For ten acres of vineyard shall yield but one bath,
and a homer of seed shall yield but an ephah.” (ESV)
The Bible never stops at generalities; but always comes down to particulars; the materialistic outlook and its characteristics; principles without God are valueless; modern conditions compared with Sodom and Gomorrah; the answer to the modern condition.
