When Our Drink Is Gone

When Our Drink Is Gone

Hosea 4:18

When their drink is gone they give themselves to whoring, their rulers dearly love shame.

I knew what this meant to me when I first read it and wrote down the verse.  But I thought I would read what scholarly people think of it and compare my thoughts with theirs.

Hosea 4:12

My people inquire of a piece of wood and their walking staff gives them oracles.  For a spirit of whoredom has led them astray, and they have left their God to play the whore.

As usual I must say here is something written thousands of years ago and it’s as true today as it was when it was written.

My people inquire of a piece of wood…..

Just substitute electronics for wood and you will understand what Hosea was talking about. Continue reading
