Question: Do you agree that "Avoidance can be worse than outright hatred? "
3 Reasons why God was Judging the Northern Kingdom:
1. Privileged Position (Ch. 1-2)

Conclusion: God's Justice is of a system that makes it possible for people to thrive in a system free of corruption that would deprive them of what they need to survive and flourish. It should be a system where merchants are honest and judges are incorruptible. And it should be a system where those who have been treated unjustly have free access to relief in court.
