Lying Pen Of The Scribes

“How do you say, We are wise, and the Law of Jehovah is with us? Behold, the lying pen of the scribes has certainly worked deceit. The wise are ashamed; they are terrified and are captured. Behold, they have rejected the Word of Jehovah, and what wisdom is theirs? So I will give their wives to others, their fields to those who shall inherit. For everyone from the least even to the greatest cuts off a profit. From the prophet even to the priest, everyone deals falsely. For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of My people slightly, saying, Peace, peace! And there is no peace. Were they ashamed when they had done hateful things? They were not even at all ashamed, nor did they know how to blush. So they shall fall among those who fall. In the time of their punishment they will wither, says Jehovah” (Jeremiah 8:8-12).

A jeremiad Tolerant Calvinists ought to deeply consider, reflect, and act upon (i.e., repent and believe the gospel).
