The Vineyard Of Sour Grapes Western Christianity seems to have lost its way (not all but many). Pedophile priests, homosexual bishops, money begging preachers. We can see by the Old Testament that Israel defiled the ‘way’ of the LORD and the LORD required it of them. For 2500 plus years foreigners ruled over Israel. One should read the history of the horrors that the exiled Jews suffered since 70 AD. How much more should a disobedient Gentile church expect? Isaiah 5:1-7 ¶ Now will I sing to my wellbeloved a song of my  beloved touching his vineyard. My wellbeloved hath a vineyard in a very fruitful hill: 2 And he fenced it, and gathered out the stones thereof, and  planted it with the choicest vine, and built a tower in the midst of it, and also made a winepress therein: and he looked that it should  bring forth grapes, and
it brought forth wild grapes
. 3 And now, O inhabitants of Jerusalem, and men of Judah, judge, I pray you, betwixt me and my vineyard. 4 What could have been done more to my vineyard, that I have not done in it? wherefore, when I looked that it should bring forth grapes, brought it forth wild grapes? 5 And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and  break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down: 6 And
I will lay it waste
: it shall not be pruned, nor digged; but there shall come up briers and thorns: I will also command the clouds that they rain no rain upon it. 7 For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment,  but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry. In another translation verse seven reads like this.
 Isaiah 5:7 Tanakh Translation For the vineyard of the LORD of Hosts Is the House of Israel, And the seedlings He lovingly tended Are the men of Judah. And He hoped for justice, But behold, injustice: For equity, But behold, iniquity! Jesus provided a very similar parable during his ministry. Lets read. Luke 20:9-18 Then began he to speak to the people this parable; A certain man planted a vineyard, and let it forth to husbandmen, and went into a far country for a long time. 10 And at the season he sent a servant to the husbandmen, that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard: but the husbandmen beat him, and sent him away empty. 11 And again he sent another servant: and they beat him also, and entreated him shamefully, and sent him away empty. 12 And again he sent a third: and they wounded him also, and cast him out. 13 Then said the lord of the vineyard, What shall I do? I will send my beloved son: it may be they will reverence him when they see him. 14 But when the husbandmen saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, This is the heir: come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours. 15 So they cast him out of the vineyard, and killed him. What therefore shall the lord of the vineyard do unto them? 16
 He shall come and destroy these husbandmen, and shall give the vineyard to others
. And when they heard it, they said, God forbid.
