Impending Judgment on the Religious Establishment (23:33-39)

Many of us today do not like to preach on judgment, but the prophets of Scripture, including Jesus, heavily emphasized warnings about judgment. If we are to be faithful to our calling as Christ's followers and if we care about others, we dare not shortchange Scripture's message of judgment on individuals and nations. We must recognize that every nation, including our own, will face divine punishment (if Israel, how much more Gentiles!). Yet we must remember that God's heart of judgment sometimes sounds most like a lament (v. 37).
