The Sms Which Caused Their Deem (vv. 7-1M. 1. ('oiifonned to tl vvn.vs of the henthen (vv. 70).

Ken thoiicli (iml hiol cast out the heathen for priictieltii; these sins, the Israelites followed In their ways, floil deiiiniids separation (II Cor. (1:17). 2. Served Idols (vv. HM2). They not only compromised hy "walking In the statuie of the heathen," but worshiped their (rods. It was not a long step from following In the statutes of the heathen to worshiping their gods. ltofre they worshiped Idols the cast off the true !otl. Idolatry came Id l.ecause the race did not wish to re tain ;xl In its affection (Rom. 1:21 j:i). I'eople today are worshiping Idols because they have first cast off the authority of the living God. Man Is a worshipful being. When he censes to worship the true God, he worships other gods. Neutral ground la luiHissilile. 3. They were rebellious (tt. 13 1"). Cod by his prophet had said unto them "Turn ye from your evil ways nnd keep my conimandments,'' but they stubbornly refused Ills testimony, even rejected Ills statutes. God. In love, tried to save them. Us sent some of the noblest and best prophet who ever spoke to man to persuade them to turn from their sins, such as KHJah and Klinlia, but they hardened their necks and plunged .let'lier Into wickedness. 4. Caused their sons and daughter, to puss through the Are (v. 17). This was fhe dreadful Moloch worship the most cruel rite of heathen worship. It was done by kindling a fire In a hollow metul linage until Its arms were red hot nnd placing live children therein to be burned to death. 5. ltesorted to magical practices (v. 17). When faith In the true Coil wanes, men always turn to the magical arts. In this way they sold them selves to evil In the sight of the Lord to provoke Him to anger. III. Judgment Falls (v. 18). At this stase of the drama the cur tain fulls. God could not be Inactlvt longer. 1. Cod was very angry. God's anger Is not raving fury, but the revulsion of Ills holy nature against sin. Sin tiinnot exist In His presence. His wrath must strike. Though He waits long, the debt must be paid and always with compound Interest. There is only one way to escape God's wrath ; that Is, to turn from sin. 2. Iteuioved them out of Ilia sight. The land of Palestine Is regurled ss the land of God's sight; that Is. the place of Ills manifested presence. Their national Identity was blotted out forever. These people are still sen tiered among the nations, and as a separate nation doubtless they will never return to their land. The Judg ment wus severe, but not more so than the sins merited. God had walled long. The despising of Ills grsee must eventually work ruin.
