Bible Study Moment: Deuteronomy 28

Recently a Facebook friend shared a post that highlighted Deuteronomy 28:43-44. I’m not printing it here because I want to avoid as much as possible of being political with what I share here. I’m familiar enough with Deuteronomy to know that the last part of it is Moses addressing the people, including telling them of blessings and curses based on how well the people follow God’s laws. So this passage sounded like one of the curses for not acting like God wants us to act.

If you read Deuteronomy 27 & 28, especially 27:19, then the position on the subject in 28:43-44 is very different than looking at only those two verses. And this is why I get a little leery when only a verse or two is quoted and no context of that passage has been given.
