Utah father says newborn’s mother placed child with adoptive parents against his wishes

SALT LAKE CITY -- Breaking into tears, Colby Nielsen says watching his baby girl being taken away was the hardest thing he’s ever had to do.

“I couldn't even get her out of her car seat,” Nielsen said.

Kaylee was born on November 4, and, since then, the 20-year-old father never left her side. Until he was forced to give her to adoptive parents this week, after Kaylee’s mother put her up for adoption.

“My favorite moments is when she would just lay on my chest and we would watch TV and she just slept,” Nielsen said.

Nielsen thought he had done everything to keep her. He filed for paternity, and he got the birth certificate amended, naming him as the biological father. It turns out, that’s not enough.

Nielsen’s lawyer, Wes Hutchins, says a technical reading of the Utah Adoption Law allows biological mothers to put their babies up for adoption without notifying the biological father.

“They took this man's daughter without his knowledge or consent: That is essentially, by definition, stealing,” Hutchins said.

In order to keep Kaylee, Nielsen needed to file a paternity action, an affidavit, and a commencement notice with Utah’s vital records, a day before the mother signed the adoption papers relinquishing her rights. However, in Nielsen’s case, he says the mother only gave him a few hours’ notice about what she was doing.

Senator Todd Weiler calls this is an unfortunate situation, but he said this is the way it has been for unmarried fathers in Utah for decades.

“In this case it's a heartbreaking story, but a simple Google search would've told this father the steps he needed to take,” Weiler said.

Nielsen’s lawyer says the law is unconstitutional.

“A statute that allows this to happen is skewed against biological fathers,” Hutchins said.

Nielsen says his girlfriend has been influenced by her religious parents who were upset that the child had been born out of wedlock. Even though Nielsen thought he had convinced her to let him raise Kaylee on his own, she ended up signing the adoption papers, relinquishing her rights to a couple that is friends with her parents.

“I would like her back,” says Nielsen tearfully.

Nielsen’s lawyer is confident they will get Kaylee back, either by changing the legislation by proposing amendments, or taking this case all the way to the Supreme Court.

    That’s how mormans steel babies from fathers and the law and the courts are in on it.
    Utah is famous for steeling children from father all the time, and DSHS claims the are looking out for the interst os children when in reality
    THEY steel more children
    and placing them woth Mormon families and they don’t care who they screw over to do it…
    DSHS, AND THE JUDGES ALLOWING THIS TO HAPPEN NEED TO BE PERMINENTLY EXTERMMINATED.

      @RUSSOJOE205000
      The word you’re looking for is steal and not steel. Marry that lady before you make babies with her Joe and you won’t have to worry about the Mormons “steeling” them away from you.

      • Milissa

        Wow really? You actually approve of this practice? You think people need to be married in order to raise children in a healthy loving environment. Your pretty much admitting this is what you sick folks do when you don’t approve of someone else’s choices. You are disgusting.

      • Ransom

        Are you in search of all those commas that went missing from your “sentence”? You think acting like a pompous know-it-all proves some kind of superiority. The fact that you think marriage is necessary to quality parenting only shows how truly ignorant you are; bottom rung. CLEARLY she’s a disgusting human being; very last thing anyone should ever do, is marry her! I suppose character is irrelevant as far as you’re concerned, however.

      Steeling (verb used with a noun): to fit with steel.
      According to dictionary.com

      I don’t understand how this story is about fitting a baby with steel.

      Oh did you mean stealing? If you’re going to leave a comment atleast sound like you know what you are talking about.

        Congratulation, you are making a joke, while a father’s little baby is stolen away from him? What kind a woman are you? At least the other comedian is a male. If you are going to leave a comment at least pretend you are a human being.

  • Monique

    I don’t see this ending well for the “adoptive parents”.
    If they’re smart, they’ll give her back asap, and end it quietly.
    The father should be compensated for all this trouble and heartache.

    • TRISH RAMIREZ

      Why should a family even think of giving up a baby they’ve adopted legally? It isn’t going to happen.

      • Stephanie

        Your education level must be very low. This is kidnapping in any other state. Utah needs to have a total governmental makeover. You cannot steal a child. Period!!! The father should have married her??? Seems she’s completely incompetant and unstable. She should have taken birth control. Obviously she didn’t. He should have used a condom. Obviously they both made this happen. They both should have a say. And obviously he’s a good man and proud father and she is lazy and cruel and hurtful. She’ll get what she deserves. You don’t take away a parents chiild!

      • A father

        Just because it’s legal dosnt mean it’s right. This young man was denied a human right to parent his biological daughter. It is wrong on many levels. Judges in the past have ruled that this is wrong and it will happen again here.

        By he way I am a Mormon and I this this other Mormon family is completely out of line.

      • Ed

        “Why should a family even think of giving up a baby they’ve adopted legally?”

        Because the adoption was unethical? It makes perfect sense as long as you’re not a sociopath.

      • lisakipp

        I am an adoptive parent. There is no way in hell that I would have adopted my children knowing that they had a bio parent ready, willing and able to parent them. It’s unethical, that’s why they shouldn’t keep the baby. Honestly, you have to ask that? Jesus.

      • ANOTHERBOB

        @LISAKIPP
        What makes you think the adoptive parents had any idea the bio-dad wanted this baby girl? What makes you think a 20-year man is capable of raising a baby daughter?

      • lisakipp

        Anotherbob- if the adoptive parents didn’t know it then, they sure know now. And guess what- bio parents don’t have to prove they’re capable of raising a child. Plenty of 20 year olds have raised children, and done a good job. You don’t farm out kids to to the parents who look the best on paper. Unless the birth parents are incapable of raising the child- children belong with their bio parents. Best case scenario, unless the children are in danger of being harmed. There is no evidence to show that this bio dad wouldn’t do a great job.

      • ANOTHERBOB

        @LISAKIPP
        Yes Lisakipp, I have a neighbor family that adopted a baby girl born to a mother who got out of jail long enough to get pregnant and a boy friend who scalded her with boiling water.

        Since when does a 20-year old boy/man have the abiltiy to raise a baby? He has neither the stablity, maturity, or financial capablity of getting the job done. It’s just exactly like trying to take off in a twin engine airplane with only one engine kinda running.

      • lisakipp

        Whether or not you think this man is capable of raising his child is wholly irrelevant. It is his right to try and do so, and it is the right of the child to stay with his bio parent. Your anecdotal story about a child who was abused is not pertinent to this particular situation. There is nothing here that suggest that this father would be abusive.

      • Amanda Greenly

        Anyone who’d keep a baby knowing that that it wasn’t freely given up for adoption by both parents is a horrible, immoral person. This baby isn’t even three weeks old. Something more crooked that flawed laws is at work here.

  • wsbirthmom

    athelps mothers find the resources they need when they want to keep their babies. We help understand all the steps they have to go through to separate themselves and their babies from the adoption entity they have connected with. We make sure they dot every i and cross every t when informing the industry that they have decided to parent their children. When mothers in crisis connect with an adoption entity, the entity sees only $$$$ and A LOT OF IT!!! (Healthy white newborns go for anywhere from $30-50,000!!) The industry has perfected it’s craft of separating mothers and father’s and natural families from their new additions. It is VERY VERY dangerous for any pregnant woman to be anywhere near an adoption entity. This includes adoption attorneys, case workers, agencies, and especially prospective adoptive wannabe parents (aka PAPs), hopeful wannabe parents (aka HAPs), or APs (aka adoptive parents) because these p

    The PAPs have a natural child to think about. How will he feel and adjust after he has bonded with Colby’s daughter only to have her returned to her real father. He will need therapy for years. The PAPs need to do the right thing right now and return baby girl to her real father. They will never be her parents.

  • Mia

    The people who now have possession of that baby girl are not adoptive parents, they’re kidnappers. They’re also child abusers, because the child’s biological father WILL eventually get his daughter back. There’s too much in the way of precedent now for him not to get her back. But legal battles can be long, and the child will be quite bonded with the couple couple by the time they’re forced to return her.

    • TRISH RAMIREZ

      There is no reason to believe that a child who was legally adopted in the State of Utah will be taken away from those parents. I wouldn’t bet any money that the bio-dad will be successful in his fight to get a child he is unable to take care of.

        “There is no reason to believe that a child who was legally adopted in the State of Utah will be taken away from those parents. I wouldn’t bet any money that the bio-dad will be successful in his fight to get a child he is unable to take care of.”

        Sure, we all remember how Terry Achane lost that battle. Oh wait, no he didn’t. Child-trafficking may be more legal in Utah, but it’s still combatable. Let’s have some optimism here, people!

        Notice the word “PRIOR” there Ed?

  • Jane

    Slow down. The media’s sources can say anything they want to make this story look like a no brainer, but this is not the whole story. Please stop being so cruel to the adopting family. They are ultimately caught in a battle between the birth father and birth mother. Do you really think they want to steal someone’s baby? Unfortunately, the birth father probably trusted the birth mother to allow him to raise the baby, but he didn’t file the necessary paper work. He really should have done this before the baby was even born, to protect himself. Now he and his family are attacking this poor family that just wanted to adopt a child. I’m not saying this is an easy situation, but none of this would have happened if he had simply done his homework. A simple internet search probably would have told him everything he needed to do. Now he is having to pack pedal this bad decision and he is dragging this poor family with him. Please be kind, but also don’t believe everything everyone says.

    • Fred

      This honest, caring, respectable family, should give him is daughter back now. Not tomorrow, Right Now get in their car and bring him his kid. Its not thiers. He trusted the mother and that couple hides in the shadows sprinkling money on the young girl. Then this honest family has the baby forceably removed from its father. Yes i see your point they are “good” people. WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!

      GIVE THE BABY BACK RIGHT NOW ITS NOT YOURS.

      • ANOTHERBOB

        The adoption papers that were signed in front of a judge say that this baby now legally belongs to the couple that adopted her. The bio-mom decided not to terminate this baby’s life and thereafter made the choice to place her in a two-parent home.

        Like Nielsen’s lawyer says, “a technical reading of the Utah Adoption Law allows biological mothers to put their babies up for adoption without notifying the biological father”.

      • Ed

        The adoptive parents returned the child, proving that at least some out there are capable of recognizing that “legal” doesn’t always mean “righteous”. While it may seem like common sense to those of us who are sane that it’s wrong to fight to keep a child from fit and willing family, plenty of APs in Utah and elsewhere in the States do exactly that, callous to the damage it does to the child. So yeah, it was actually pretty classy of these people to put the kid first.

    • Lynn Johansenn

      Done his homework? Seriously? He was at the hospital, he never left his child’s side. The raised her for 2 weeks, and he should’ve been looking up how to ensure they couldn’t come and take his baby home? They KNEW he wanted to parent his child. They had changed their minds. They didn’t want to take someone’s child, they BOUGHT HIS CHILD. The maternal grandparents of Kaylee will pay the ultimate price. I have no sympathy for this couple. They should be ashamed of themselves.

        If Mr. Colby Nielsen had done his homework he’d have known that he needed to file a paternity action, an affidavit, and a commencement notice with Utah’s vital records, a day before the mother signed the adoption papers relinquishing her rights. I guess he didn’t do his homework did he.

      • Genecroix

        Trish, the point is you shouldn’t have to “do your homework” to keep your own child. Did the mother have to file any work to keep her child, can a father give a baby up for adoption and blame it on the mother for not marrying him? We know the law, the argument is that the law is sexist, and doesn’t put the best interest of the child nor father in mind, only the wishes of the mother. It’s a government intrusion to promote the marrying of couples for religious reasons.

    • L F

      Done his homework? Your kidding everyone on this panel right? You have got to have one heck of a brain process to thin this kid who took care of this newborn had anytime to file any paperwork. Are you kidding me? I wouldn’t know what to legally do in that situation and I am 46. I don’t want to be cruel to you on social media and I don’t want to put you down, but I would love for you to re assess your thought process here. Kaylee has a family. The Larsens do not need to be taking this baby from a family that wants and loves her. The whole point of adoption (and I am adopted)is to give a home to a child who might otherwise not have one or may live in a foster care. This baby has a home, has loving family member, a small cousin waiting for her to come back. They want this baby. Its not matter of paperwork its a matter of the heart.

      • ANOTHERBOB

        “Kaylee” is the name that was on her birth certificate. It isn’t the one she was given when she was legally adopted and which now appear on her adoption papers.

    • Ed

      “none of this would have happened if he had simply done his homework.”

      None of this would have happened if the people who conspired to do it hadn’t conspired to do it. You aren’t magically justified in doing evil to another human being because said human being had their guard down. In what other scenario would that logic not sound completely insane?

  • Trish Ramirez

    There is a lesson to be learned here fellows. The birth mother has the right to abort her baby up until about the 20th week, and she has the right to place it in a good home after she gives birth. If you men want a say in the future of your children then marry that woman before she gives birth.

    • Chelsea

      It don’t matter if a man and woman is married the father should have the same rights a the mother it takes two to make the child it should take both of them to make the decision..she knew he wanted to take care and raise the child she had no right giving his child away.

      • ANOTHERBOB

        “Should” isn’t recognized in a court of law Chelsea. The judge deals with matter of fact and not emotions.

    • prisonerofthesystem

      We saw how well that worked out for Terry Achane who was married and deployed in the military now didn’t we Trish? Also, to require marriage for fathers to have rights to their blood children is in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution. The only reason it’s still allowed is due to groups lobbying on behalf of the autonomy of women which also brought us safe haven laws without requiring any identifying of the other family. This is little more than an extension of Roe V Wade. A mother can abort, abandon, or as Megan Huntsman of Utah did, kill 9 kids after they were born, or adopt the child to someone else, all of which circumvent a father’s rights to his child. How about you look up all the other Utah adoption fraud cases as I have, as well as look to the groups who continue pushing the agenda to drive fathers out of their kids lives. Any clue who the National Organization is that is opposed to shared parenting, and has been since a bogus study in 1985?

      How about the same group that’s been responsible for helping to shoot down not only Alimony, but child support reform, family court reform, and shared parenting legislation in 3 states just this past year? I’ll clue you in. It’s the National Organization for Women.

    • Ed

      Terry Achane both fully supported and was married to the mother of his child when she adopted her out in Utah, so clearly that’s not the ultimate defense you seem to think it is. Fathers’ rights need to be more adequately protected and respected, bottom line.

    • lisakipp

      Children have a right to be with their biological family. That is their right, and that is preferable. The only time it is not preferable is if the bio parents literally cannot raise the child, either due to abuse issues or mental illness. Only then is it preferable to place a child with a new family. My adopted children could not be safely raised by their bio parents. Don’t get me wrong, I love them like crazy, and would die to lose them, but if their parents were around and able to raise them and wanted to I would have to let them.

    • Kristin

      I thought it takes a mom and dad to make a baby? Not just a mom. The dad wanted to keep her so why not keep her with he birth dad! You are such an idiot.

    • ANOTHERBOB

      @LISAKIPP
      No Lisakipp, actually it is the court that has the RIGHT to determine placement of a child in a case like this, and they base their judgments on Utah Code – 78-30-4.14.
      Probably why Nielsen’s lawyer said a technical reading of the Utah Adoption Law allows biological mothers to put their babies up for adoption without notifying the biological father. If it goes as far as the Utah Supreme Court the adoptive family will win, and the US Supreme Court won’t even consider ruling on it.
      It’s all over but the shouting.

  • Amy

    I’m quite disgusted with the people who took the child. How selfish can you be? I would like to know what “religion” they associate themselves with because it clearly isn’t Christianity. Grace trumps having children outside of marriage and the right thing to do would be to help this father who wants HIS child. Marriage doesn’t necessarily make a good daddy. This dad actually wants his responsibility!! Shame on this mom and the family!! I see total manipulation in this situation. I wonder how much $ the mom made on this baby?!?!

    • ANOTHERBOB

      It is very simple Jessie. A family adopted a baby legally and lawfully. It is unfortunate for Mr. Nielsen that he didn’t file a paternity action like he knew , or should have known, that he needed to do. The adoptive family will sleep very well.

      • BLuman

        Colby started filing for paternity as soon as he realized he would need to. He and his girlfriend had agreed to raise Kaylee together so he didn’t realize it would be an issue. He immediately started the process, but by then it was too late. It’s really sad that the mother didn’t even give him a chance to be the father he wanted to be.

      • ANOTHERBOB

        I rather doubt the bio-dad was thinking about babies when he started playing house with his girlfriend. It sounds like the girlfriend was the more mature of the two, and made a difficult decision to do what she thought was in the best interests of her daughter. She certainly knew her 20-year old boyfriend didn’t have the maturity her daughter needed.

      • lisakipp

        The adoptive family will sleep very well? Even if study after study shows that the best case scenario is for children to be raised by their bio parents? Now, granted, that is providing that the bio parents are mentally stable, right? But children – and I’m emphasizing the rights of the child here- have a right to their bio family.

      • Amanda Greenly

        A father shouldn’t have to file paperwork to keep his own child, and anyone who cites not filing it as a reason to allow his daughter to be kept from him is just as warped as the system that allowed it to happen. The child isn’t even three weeks old, some of you are talking as if he had all the time in the world and whittled it away.

      • BLuman

        Looks like the adoptive parents didn’t sleep well, since they finally did the rightish thing and gave the baby back…albeit to the woman who gave away her rights but at least it’s something.

  • Cin Ok

    What kind of monster would keep a child stolen from a father when they learn he wants his child? Worse, hire a lawyer to fight the father. The same kind that would be lawyer for the monster. Illegal money must be involved, perhaps through creative and excessive lawyer billing that makes it superficially appear legit. The mother’s parents pressured her into the decision, knowing the father wanted his child. Wonder if they got compensation, too. It was apparently an unusual, secret adoption run quickly through the system. One hand washing the other agreement, or simply a sleazily lawyer/people capitalizing on an available, in demand commodity: a healthy baby?

    The claim is that the expensive lawyer fighting against the father has strong ties to the horrible law written to give power to the mother only (more easily available, high demand commodities to make money off off). Nothing prevented a law stating the mother has to give reasonable notice, properly served, to the father. If an extensive, good faith attempt is made to a find the father, then the requirement could completed. Less business for adoption lawyers, though.

  • ANOTHERBOB

    The legal adoption was finalized and if Nielsen’s lawyer thinks they will get Kaylee back changing legislation via proposing amendments he is sadly mistaken. By the way, as part of the adoption her parents would have given their new baby a name of their chosing.

    • A father

      You are wrong. There is case law and legal president established for a judge to overturn an adoption in Utah. All of these cases have a similar background. The law needs to change it has already be established that the law is wrong. Brad and Miranda Larsen need to give this baby back.

      • ANOTHERBOB

        John Wyatt from Virgina had a similar opinion when he went to court and tried to get Baby Emma back from a family that adopted her in Utah. He lost. And no, the couple that legally adopted this baby won’t be giving their baby back to to a 20 year old man who will eventually need to go out and find himself a job.

    • Amanda Greenly

      You’re an ugly, horrible person to support this. The child was legally adopted? In less than three weeks? Without the consent of the child’s father, who despite your disapproval has an inherent right to raise HIS daughter. The adoptive parents are evil, PERIOD. How one can sleep knowing that they’ve stolen a child from her parent, and denied this child her family is mind boggling . There are actually babies who are unwanted and unloved, yet they’re fighting to steal one. If this makes it to a federal court, don’t count on the adoptive parents prevailing. Outside of Utah people are sane. As a mother, my heart breaks for this man.

    Senator Weiler is pathetic. That’s his answer. Google it. No Senator get the stupid law that allows this to happen changed. This state is a joke to allow a law to remain like this. Someone get off their high horse and do some work that never makes this happen again.

  • lisaportland

    Who are the adoptive parents? As an AP, there is NO WAY I would adopt a child who had a bio parent ready, willing and able to step up. The adoptive parents should return that child. It’s unconscionable to keep that baby. This is not okay for the child, or the father.

  • Ed

    Anyone willing to take a child from fit and willing family isn’t capable of the self-sacrifice required to be a parent in the first place. The adoptive parents in this situation may not know what’s going on, but in cases of unethical adoption such as these they often do. And with how widely publicized this story becomes, ignorance won’t be a valid excuse for much longer.

    Furthermore, any claims that the father should have known to protect himself from a violation of both his natural rights and those of his child is tantamount to victim-blaming. You don’t get a pass on hurting someone because they weren’t defending themselves, that type of logic is unacceptable with regards to any other violation of a fellow human being, and this is no exception. This child was unethically adopted because a person or persons conspired to unethically adopt out the child, bottom line. The father not knowing about whatever obscure nonsensical hoops he had to jump through in order to establish what should be an automatic right doesn’t magically change basic cause and effect.

    Any child born of consensual relations has two parents who deserve equal rights. If the law doesn’t protect those rights, then the law is wrong and needs to be changed. If the adoptive couple are in any way decent, they’ll return this child the moment they become aware of the facts.

  • rho

    They need to change this now! How crazy is this that they can’t give away someone’s child. This little girl should have never been taken away from her father. Praying he gets her back and soon. You would think the adoptive couple would do the right thing and give the baby back to her father.

  • Amanda Greenly

    Who does this? Set aside the flaws in the law that allowed this to happen, but who in their right mind keeps a baby when they know that she has a parent who loves her, wants her, and at no point gave her up or did anything that would warrant severing his rights? They’re kidnapping this child, just because the law isn’t stopping them (yet) doesn’t make it not so. If they fight him, they’re terrible people, sorry, there’s no other word to describe it.

    Colby, I have no doubt you will have your daughter back and I pray that you do soon. Your gf, needs to grow up a bit and tell her parents to “butt out.” In my opinion, her parents are anything but religious, just saying! May you have many happy healthy years with your daughter! You are what every kid should have for a dad ~

    What about a father’s rights. I guess if the mother didn’t get any money she didn’t want the Father to have the child either. Selfish woman. They would not have done that if it were the mother. Double Standard! She was probably afraid she’d have to pay child support.

    What galls me is that this law is patently sexist against fathers on its very face! This law was no doubt pushed through by ultra-radical feminazis!!! To say that a father…a DAD has any less say about his own flesh and blood child is unimaginably sexist and evil. That man deserves not only to get his daughter back, but to also have every cent and asset of every sorry piece of human waste that drafted, passed,and enforced this law so that not a one has a pot to pee in left to them. I hope he gets his baby girl back, gets this sexist feminist law over-turned and sues everyone involved for every cent they have or ever will have. Pure evil this is!!!

    Milissa, First, NO I DO NOT APPROVE of this man’s parental rights being brushed aside as if he doesn’t exist. That baby girl is as much his as she is the mother’s.

    God instituted marriage between one man and one woman. Read Genesis chapter 2.

    Gen 2:20 And the man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the heavens, and to every beast of the field; but for man there was not found a help meet for him.
    Gen 2:21 And Jehovah God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof:
    Gen 2:22 and the rib, which Jehovah God had taken from the man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
    Gen 2:23 And the man said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
    Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

    Adultery is the only scriptural reason for divorce that will allow for re-marriage. (Matthew 19:9)

    Mat 19:3 And Pharisees came up to him (Jesus) and tested him by asking, “Is it lawful to divorce one’s wife for any cause?”
    Mat 19:4 He answered, “Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female,
    Mat 19:5 and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?
    Mat 19:6 So they are no longer two but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let not man separate.”
    Mat 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and he that marrieth her when she is put away committeth adultery.

    Heb 13:4 Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

    Your reaction reveals that you are a part of the problem with this country. You’ve become wiser than Almighty God in your own conceited eyes. You think you know better. You don’t. People abandoning God’s pattern is why this nation is in the mess it’s in.

    Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
    Isa 5:21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
    Isa 5:22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink;
    Isa 5:23 that justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
    Isa 5:24 Therefore as the tongue of fire devoureth the stubble, and as the dry grass sinketh down in the flame, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust; because they have rejected the law of Jehovah of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
    Isa 5:25 Therefore is the anger of Jehovah kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them; and the mountains tremble, and their dead bodies are as refuse in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

    You don’t have a problem with me really. Your problem lies with God and His Word. You are arrogant and refuse to bow the knee to Him in obedience.

    Pro 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes; But he that is wise hearkeneth unto counsel.

    Jer 6:15 Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall; at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith Jehovah.
