When Heaven is Considered Empty…

When heaven is considered empty (‘We do not fear the Lord’ Hosea 1:3), words and promises soon follow suit, and justice, so-called, becomes a parody of its true self – no longer towering impartially above the strong and the weak, but earthbound and torturous, springing from the thoughts and policies of the moment; no longer a force for good and for the nation’s health, but a source of poison.
