Prophecy

Chaldea shall be plundered; all who plunder her shall be sated, says the LORD. Though you rejoice, though you exult, O plunderers of my heritage, though you frisk about like a heifer on the grass, and neigh like stallions, your mother shall be utterly shamed, and she who bore you shall be disgraced. Lo, she shall be the last of the nations, a wilderness, dry land, and a desert. Because of the wrath of the LORD she shall not be inhabited, but shall be an utter desolation; everyone who passes by Babylon shall be appalled and hiss because of all her wounds. (Jeremiah 50:10–13, NRSV)

What do people who say that every prophecy is fulfilled say about this one? I’m pretty sure there are people living in Babylon even today.

Odd ways of viewing the Bible can affect your faith. My pastor once said, “If any word in this Bible could be proven false, the whole thing is worthless.” I don’t know about you, but my faith is in Jesus, not in the book. My pastor was wrong when he said that.
