It is very clear in that passage you brot up, Jeff, that God is telling the people to Seek Him and live....He is the only hope...yet wickedness abounds. But then we read verses 10 and 13:"They hate the one who rebukes in the gate. And they abhor the one who speaks uprightly.Therefore the prudent keep silent at that time, for it is an evil time."xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxIs it fear that has softened and in many cases "silenced" the directive voice of the Church?Have we become so discouraged by the lack of receptiveness of the Gospel, that we won't even speak it out?Do we fear persecution?or worse yet,Do we see the evil as being stonger than the Power of God to overcome the wickedness, therefore we have just stopped praying?Bonnie

If we have been called to nothing but to KNOW Him, then I am content.
