The Case Study Of Jerusalem

Here, the Spirit of God through Isaiah lambasts the city of Jerusalem, the destined capital of Israel:

"How the faithful city has become a whore, she who was full of justice! Righteousness lodged in her, but now murderers. Your silver has become dross, your best wine mixed with water. Your princes are rebels and companions of thieves. Everyone loves a bribe and runs after gifts. They do not bring justice to the fatherless, and the widow's cause does not come to them."

This presents a case study of the essence of what God finds Wrong with a Society.

God desires:

Society descends towards:

  • Unfaithfulness
  • Murder
  • Decay
  • Dilution
  • Rebels
  • Thieves
  • Bribes
  • Injustice

Through this case study and so many others in Scripture, the Pattern Language of the Kingdom of God begins to become clear.
