Collective Transgression

Key Verse

“The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger” (Jeremiah 7:18).

TEXT — Jeremiah 7:17-34


In a West African nation, one community conspired to kill a male stranger and buried him in a shallow grave. The murder was hidden from law enforcement agencies and the general public. But the grave consequences soon came upon the community. Several young men started dying and many young women became barren for years. These evil incidents continued until the community realised the cause of their problems. They repented, confessed their sins and cried unto God for deliverance.
Collective or corporate iniquity is dangerous. Men, women and children of Judah contributed to the worship of the queen of heaven and other gods. Parents burnt their sons and daughters in fire and everyone consented to the practice without objection. Despite God’s repeated warnings through His prophets, the people followed the footsteps of their fathers and walked in the imaginations of their own hearts. Because the people of Judah collectively continued in sin without repentance, God pronounced judgment on them as a nation. When God’s judgment came, everyone suffered the mortal consequences of sin and disobedience.
In today’s world, several families, communities and nations conspire to commit iniquity thinking that no one would see them. Groups conspire to steal public funds, kill innocent people, oppress the poor and the widows. They forcefully take people’s properties, rape women and children and commit all sorts of atrocities. Unfortunately, there are some so-called Christians who directly or indirectly contribute their money, resources, time and counsel to such causes. When God’s judgment comes, no one will be spared. If you join hands directly or indirectly with the wicked to commit evil, you will be punished with the wicked.
If you think you are smart enough and well-connected to evade the judgment of this world, you cannot escape the grim judgment of God. The only sure way of escape is total repentance. You will also have to do all necessary restitutions and keep your record straight. The truth remains that though hands join with hands, the wicked shall not go unpunished. Repent now before it is too late.

Thought for the day

If you join the multitude to sin, you share from multiple calamities.
