So God hates worship services. The quotes affirming this in my previous post are from the prophecy of Amos. God isn’t mixing any words. It was a rather wealthy era in Israel’s history, and they were living it up. To be specific, this was during the years when Israel was split north (Israel) and south (Judah). Amos’ prophecy is mostly for the north. Why did God hate their worship? What were they doing wrong? I urge you to read the prophecy.
For me the key question as I studied this was, if God hated the worship of the Israelites in Amos’ day, might he also hate worship that happens at Faith Church? If so, why? What caused him to hate worship then, and is that happening again today? What can we do about it? Let’s discuss this!
