# Abandoned Truth

Text: Isaiah 59:13-15

We will preach on the dangers of familiarity with the truth without submission to it.

First, we see the exposure to the truth without an expectation to obey it.  It became contemptible: trash in the street.  It was trampled on by the people God gave it to.

Secondly, no one would pick it up.  The people were observers and bystanders when it came to the truth, but it had no effect on their lives.

Thirdly, ineffective truth is unbelieved truth.

Fourthly, the faithful became targets.
