God’s judgment and this world

Our God is a consuming fire

A recent article I read identifies society’s corruption that the Prophet Jeremiah experienced in his day some 2,600-years ago. It also reveals how today’s corrupt world parallels Jeremiah’s world back then. Naturally, such a situation brought about God’s judgment on the world as stated in the Bible:
