What God Wants


“I can’t stand your religious meetings.
I’m fed up with your conferences and conventions.
I want nothing to do with your religion projects,
your pretentious slogans and goals.
I’m sick of your fund-raising schemes,
… your public relations and image making.
I’ve had all I can take of your noisy ego-music.
When was the last time you sang to me?
Do you know what I want?
I want justice—oceans of it.
I want fairness—rivers of it.
That’s what I want. That’s all I want.
AMOS 5:21-24 (MSG)

  1. Revelation 22:17-19

    Personally I think brother Eugene plays with fire. “that’s all I want” seems added and out of context.

    So, the word seems broadened to all where I think it was to some in particular, then the will of the LORD seems presented in a very narrowed way which is not consistent with what I have observed as the testimonies presented in the canon. Dangerous business. I could be wrong, of course.
