31.5.11

Amos 5


"Seek good and not evil—
 and live!
You talk about God, the God-of-the-Angel-Armies,
 being your best friend.
Well, live like it,
 and maybe it will happen.
...
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"
