Day 14: Greenwash

The original audiences in today’s readings are admonished for hypocrisy of various kinds. The leaders of Sodom and Gomorrah are instructed to put their house in order, especially in terms of their treatment of the poor. The Psalmist targets ‘talkers’ who proclaim God only with their mouths. Jesus sets his sights on religious experts who impose burdens without doing anything to help others.
