Jeremiah was at his wit's end.

In this week' Bible reading from Jeremiah 20:7-13, he called God a liar.  Or if not a liar, -- a coersive, power-driven abuser.

And then he said that even though God had ruined him, and folks all around him encouraged him to get away from this awful God, he couldn't do it.  He had to stay and praise God. And everyone who told him to get away from God were just evildoers who didn't understand who God really was.

And he asked God to get rid of the ones who didn't like the way God treated Jeremiah.

That's messed up.  Really.
