The Condition of Fallen Man
A Sermon on Jeremiah 2:10-12
For cross to the coasts of Cyprus and see,
or send to Kedar and examine with care;
see if there has been such a thing.
Has a nation changed its gods,
even though they are no gods?
But my people have changed their glory
for that which does not profit.
Be appalled, O heavens, at this;
be shocked, be utterly desolate,
declares the LORD, (ESV)
What is wrong with man? the condition of man revealed in his thinking and philosophy; this condition revealed in practice; man turns his back on the glory; the honour and glory that comes from the only God.
