My Hi-lite: Jeremiah 5:31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof?
Judging by what is "taught", or better said "not taught" in most of our Christian churches today nothing has changed since Jeremiah's time.
Jeremiah 7:4 Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these.
7:10 And come and stand before me in
this house, which is called by my name, and say, We are delivered to do
all these abominations?
11 Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes? Behold, even I have seen it, saith the LORD
7:14 Therefore will I do unto this house,
is called by my name, wherein ye trust, and
unto the place which I gave to you and to your fathers, as I have done
7:18 The children gather wood, and the
fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to
make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to
pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.

to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
