Ian Higginbotham begins our Have I got news for you! series.
God has a take on the way we live our lives, both individually and as a nation. From time to time he tells us so, and sets out some principles which we ignore at our peril.
People like Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel were given messages to the Jewish nation which are as relevant today as they have ever been, and are intended to hugely impact the way we ‘do life’.
In this message Ian is looking at Isaiah 44:6-20.
Back in the early days of the nation, God warned that pick and mix religion would inevitably lead into bad ways, and it did. God’s people had picked up all sorts of religious practices and beliefs and thought they could enjoy the best of all worlds, and those supposedly speaking on God’s behalf were making it up as they went along. They were worshiping who they had become. They were wrong then just as the mish-mash of beliefs and trust in our own wealth are wrong in our society today.
