The nation shall split

July 10, 2013

1 Kings 11:
Solomon’s obsession with women had led him far from God. With wives from every tribe and nation came new gods the king introduced to his people.

When he went so far as to build altars to the hideous deities Chemosh and Molech—the kind of places where worshipers violated prostitutes as their offerings and burned infants as incense—God spoke one last time to the man who so long ago had prayed for wisdom.

The kingdom Solomon has spent his life expanding across the entire world would be torn apart, rent like a mourners robe into shreds to be collected by passersby.
