The ‘Wisdom of Solomon’ Sounds Very Modern…

It’s almost like it describes America today-

It is not enough, however, for them to have such misconceptions about God; for, living in the fierce warfare of ignorance, they call these terrible evils peace.  With their child-murdering rites, their occult mysteries, or their frenzied orgies with outlandish customs,  they no longer retain any purity in their lives or their marriages, one treacherously murdering another or wronging him by adultery.  Everywhere a welter of blood and murder, theft and fraud, corruption, treachery, riot, perjury, disturbance of decent people, forgetfulness of favours, pollution of souls, sins against nature, disorder in marriage, adultery and debauchery. (Wis. 14:22-26)

Child murdering rites… orgies… outlandish customs… lack of purity… widespread adultery… corruption… pollution of souls…. debauchery…. and all the rest.  Yup- that’s America.
