Isaiah for Today

When one wonders if there is a contemporary context to understand Isaiah, one has to look no further than verses 16-17 of Chapter 1, 

Isaiah 1:16–17 (NKJV)

16 “Wash yourselves, make yourselves clean; Put away the evil of your doings from before My eyes. Cease to do evil, 17 Learn to do good; Seek justice, Rebuke the oppressor; Defend the fatherless, Plead for the widow.

Who are the fatherless in our country that need to be defended today?  The 3000+ children who will be murdered on American soil today, that's who.
