I am reading a Warren Wiersbe commentary on the book of Jeremiah. I have noticed that the culture of Jeremiah's day was similar to that of ours. Relativism, & pluralism seems to have been a common attitude during his time. I find it interesting that God calls Jeremiah to do some open air preaching and expose the hypocrites. Many today say that open air is ineffective, it does not work, it offends people, and so on. Or they might say that open air was a common way to communicate in that culture, and for this they may have a point. However no one can say that God cannot use open air preachers. I am persuaded that he prefers open air, as in the book of Revelation chapter 11 I believe Moses & Elijah preach for 1260 days.
