Talking about the book of Jeremiah, Don Carson writes (pg. 52) today in "For the Love Of God":
The northern nation of Israel was caught in spiritual adultery, and God gave her "a certificate of divorce" (3:6 - 8): she was sent off into exile in 722 B. C. under the Assyrian king, Sargon ll. From this, her sister Judah learned nothing: a century later she did what her sister did, but with even less excuse since she had seen what had happened to Israel (3:9ff.).
To what extent is contemporary evangelicalism selling out the Gospel, having learned almost nothing from the somewhat similar capsize of Protestant confessionalism about a hundred years ago?
