The "Plague" of Apostasy

In reviewing God's commandments in Leviticus for dealing with plague in the house I was reminded of the "plague" of apostasy currently growing rampantly within the "house" of God.

May we who are called by His name pray that our Great and High Priest, Jesus Christ would restore those who have corrupted themselves with the love of this world and who have esteemed the praise of men higher than the praise of God!

And if they refuse to repent of their evil ways may our Great and High Priest scrape their plague from the houses and remove those living stones who are incorrigible and corrupted, and if necessary may He break down the houses altogether and carry them away to an unclean place in order that His house would be known to the nations as a house of prayer and not a den of thieves!

With a mighty hand and an outstretched arm may the Lord Almighty sovereignly and altogether remove the fretting leprosy of the apostate heretics; these ravenous wolves in sheep's clothing who seek only to rend the flock! May He alone who is Worthy and True remove this vile plague from within His house! Amen.

Leviticus 14:35-45
35And he that owneth the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, It seemeth to me there is as it were a plague in the house:

36Then the priest shall command that they empty the house, before the priest go into it to see the plague, that all that is in the house be not made unclean: and afterward the priest shall go in to see the house:

37And he shall look on the plague, and, behold, if the plague be in the walls of the house with hollow strakes, greenish or reddish, which in sight are lower than the wall;

38Then the priest shall go out of the house to the door of the house, and shut up the house seven days:

39And the priest shall come again the seventh day, and shall look: and, behold, if the plague be spread in the walls of the house;

40Then the priest shall command that they take away the stones in which the plague is, and they shall cast them into an unclean place without the city:

41And he shall cause the house to be scraped within round about, and they shall pour out the dust that they scrape off without the city into an unclean place:

42And they shall take other stones, and put them in the place of those stones; and he shall take other morter, and shall plaister the house.

43And if the plague come again, and break out in the house, after that he hath taken away the stones, and after he hath scraped the house, and after it is plaistered;

44Then the priest shall come and look, and, behold, if the plague be spread in the house, it is a fretting leprosy in the house; it is unclean.

45And he shall break down the house, the stones of it, and the timber thereof, and all the morter of the house; and he shall carry them forth out of the city into an unclean place.
