The Bible Challenge: Day 267

The scriptures read are Lamentations 5, Psalm 69 and 2 Peter 2.

Lamentations 5. A grim picture of the aftermath of the fall of Jerusalem, the new normal of living there. You really didn't expect a book called Lamentations to have a happy ending, did you?

Psalm 69. Though it only covers the first 9 verses, this version captures perfectly the mood of this lament. In its own way, so does this haunting Anglican chant, though by doing the whole psalm the upbeat ending is also reflected gloriously. 

2 Peter 2. I wonder how cult leaders handle this chapter when doing Bible studies or preaching. I bet they don't because their typical M.O. is laid out clearly. Not only are their the outrageous heresies but the sexual promiscuity and greed that inevitably come out in these charlatans. If more people read this chapter, less folks would be tricked by these conmen. The Bible reserves the harshest language for hypocritical and destructive religious leaders.
