this little passage from Jeremiah rebukes Judah for falling into the same sin as Israel
even after Judah saw how God punished Israel
it reminds me of the errors of the institutional catholic church, that have now been totally copied by the institutional protestant church
God always keeps a remnant, by His Grace
so pour out Your Grace and Mercy on us Loving Father, we need it!!
"Have you seen what faithless Israel did? She went up on every high hill and under every green tree, and she was a harlot there.
"I thought, 'After she has done all these things she will return to Me'; but she did not return, and her treacherous sister Judah saw it.
"And I saw that for all the adulteries of faithless Israel, I had sent her away and given her a writ of divorce, yet her treacherous sister Judah did not fear; but she went and was a harlot also.
"Because of the lightness of her harlotry, she polluted the land and committed adultery with stones and trees.
"Yet in spite of all this her treacherous sister Judah did not return to Me with all her heart, but rather in deception," declares the LORD.
And the LORD said to me, "Faithless Israel has proved herself more righteous than treacherous Judah.
