Why national captivity for modern IsraelWhy national captivity for modern Israel
Gene H Hogberg

PASADENA - Ever since he has understood God's message for the modern-day descendants of Israel. Pastor General Herbert W. Armstrong has been faithful in proclaiming God's warning, "Cry aloud, spare not; lift up your voice like a trumpet; tell my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins" (Isaiah 58:1, Revised Authorized Version unless noted). Failure to heed this warning, God's servant to this age has warned, will lead to the frightening specter of national captivity (Jeremiah 30:3 and 31:7-11. among other references) But what sins does God single out as being so serious as to bring about such a stern judgment? Leviticus 18 is a good place to start. God went into detail to educate His people in what they were not to do regarding sexual practices, so they would not engage in the same laxness and even depravity of the nations around them. In this regard homosexuality was expressly forbidden (verse 22). God said that those nations were defiled by such practices and therefore the land of Canaan, which the Israelites were to receive as their inheritance, "vomits out its inhabitants" (verse 25).
