Jeremiah’s Mirror Held Up to the Face of the Christian
The framework of worship that the fundamentalist adheres to today is surprisingly similar to the same framework that Judah adhered to during the days of that Spirit-filled prophet Jeremiah.
Fundamentalists today have all but turned a blind eye to the writings of the Old Testament.

To begin with, the time of the year: one of the biggest clues as to the time of the year has to be the mention of the shepherds tending their flocks in an open field at night.
