/rōɡ/
noun

Our church is overfilled with religious zealots. They are ready at a moments notice to ruin a spouses good name to “break” them down. To force a minor child out on the street. To lure gullible individuals into marriages without love. To lie to exterior family members regarding our real activities. To love bomb lonely/hurting families in order to grab their kids affections. To cover up adulteries and fornications and lusts. To threaten some into scared silence. And the list goes on. Just an average run-of-the-mill church. We look good on the outside, kind of like a grave, but on the inside we are just a bunch of dead men’s bones. Pretty sad.

But God says, “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish” (Psalm 1).

"Son of man, I have appointed you as a watchman for Israel. Whenever you receive a message from me, warn people immediately. If I warn the wicked, saying, ‘You are under the penalty of death,’ but you fail to deliver the warning, they will die in their sins. And I will hold you responsible for their deaths." Ezekiel 3:17-18 NLT
