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

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
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. Whst
Judgment must fall upon the people
today who rejeet Ills grai-e and mercy I
