When Religion Pays

August 27, 2017 Speaker: Ben Janssen Series: The Judges: Save Us from Ourselves

Scripture: Judges 17:1– 18:31

The book of Judges draws to a close by examining what the religious and moral climate of Israel was like "on the ground." Religiously, Israel looks more like the pagan nations around them than they do the chosen people of God. They have lost their faith in a personal God and have ended up with a dead religiosity devoid of any real meaning. With every man doing what is right in his own eyes, religion is just another way Israel expressed the hopelessness of the strong dominating the weak.
