Were they ashamed when they acted so abhorrently?
They weren’t at all ashamed.
They can no longer feel humiliation.
Therefore, they will fall among the fallen.
When I punish them, they will collapse,
says the Lord.
The loss of shame for abhorrent, immoral acts is a clear sign that one is disconnected from truth and hope. To become so desensitized to sin that we no longer feel shame is to separate ourselves so far from Father God as to provoke Him to respond with wrath and severe punishment. Nothing else will get through the calloused heart that feels no shame. It is a terrifying place to be outside of the grace of God. This truly is Hell.
