By the Waters of Babylon

Speaker: John McLarty

Audio Recording:


The Babylonian army captured Jerusalem and hauled off most of the residents to Babylon. In that place of exile, there was fierce disagreement among the Jews. A prophet named Hananiah urged them to sharply separate themselves from the local people, promising that God was going to rescue them and get them back to Jerusalem in a couple of years. The prophet Jeremiah countered, “No. God is not going to take you back to Jerusalem any time soon. Your calling is to settle down and get on with life. Pray for the prosperity of the towns where you are now living because their prosperity will be your prosperity.” Today, Christians hear similar calls. Some preachers imagine the secular world as Babylon—a godless place to be loathed and damned. Other preachers echo the words of Jesus about being the light of the world. They urge us to be active in service and love. Which voices are we choosing to listen to?
