3 they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel. But they didn't think they had done this. The Israelites thought they knew God and were pleasing to him; they had been deceived by their shepherds. And today, this is exactly the case with Christendom; they ignore Jesus' commands. They do not listen to the Holy Spirit. They do not even try to obey the moral laws: do not lie, steal, cheat, commit adultery, covet, etc. They ignore all the warnings of the Bible. Yet Christendom thinks they are pleasing to God; they think they know God; but they don't.
