Pedestrians slowed down to look him over as they passed by. Some chil- dren mimicked him. Many peo- ple smiled or Rev. Althouse smirked as they read the sign; a few laughed openly and loudly. People are not in a mood to repent and the thought of God's judgment coming upon us today seems an amusingly ridiculous idea. Outdated? No one, it seems, ever takes too seriously prophetic warnings. God's judgment, we reason, is something for some other person to worry about. Many have re- signed the Biblical Day of Judg- ment to the realm of mythology. Repentance. as well as sin" itself, seems an outdated way of thinking. Often, only when we have suffered or known difficulty, do we take God's judgment seriously. it had been that way with Israel. In 722 B.C approxi- mately two hundred years after the division of the United Mon- archy, after many unheeded warnings, that which had been well prophesied came to pass: Assyria defeated the forces of Israel and carried her people into captivity, the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel never to be seen or heard of again. What were the reasons for this tragedy? This historian might offer the following: (1) She was ruled by a long line of un- believably incompetent and evil kings; (2) She had placed her dependence upon military alliances with other nations, all of which proved, in one way or another, to have been the wrong ones; (3) Although Israel had been relatively weak in military" forces, the nation had often as- sumed pretensions of great mili- tary power and become involved in disputes too big for her to win. The decay within All of these are quite accurate enough. Yet, when we r e a d the Old Testament, we find that the writers look upon the cause of the tragedy, not as military or political weakness, but as spiritual and moral decay. This the weak- ness within, was the real cause of lsraers tragic ending: "And they did wicked things, provoking the Lord to anger " (17:11). What was it that provoked that anger?' For one thing, they worshipped pagan gods and idols: "They set up for themselves pillars and Asherim on every high hill and under every green tree . . . And they served idols vice of the Churches of our cam "(17:10,12). munity and hope that you willSecondly, they followed the read their names which appear ways of their neighbor nations, even though these practices con- in this advertisement each week flitted with their Hebrew heritage.
