"Peace, peace" when there is no peace

Some things never change:
Thus says the Lord of hosts: “Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you, filling you with vain hopes. They speak visions of their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord. They say continually to those who despise the word of the Lord, ‘It shall be well with you’; and to everyone who stubbornly follows his own heart, they say, ‘No disaster shall come upon you.’”

—Jeremiah 23:16-17


Then again, who would be silly enough to believe any so-called prophet who said that?
I know—that's just crazy talk!
This is sad...I think we're seeing this come to fruition now. Life is getting trickier, isn't it? I think it is, for sure.
Sometimes I find it assuring (if also a bit frustrating) that there's nothing new under the sun. While we seem to find new angles, it's the same darkness and brokenness that has always been in the heart of man. I'm glad we can't surprise God.
