What Shall We Do To Satisfy God - IV?
“…Those who worship [God] must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:24, NLT). “I hate your show and pretense—your hypocrisy of honoring me with your religious feasts and solemn assemblies. I will not accept your burnt offerings and thank offerings. I will not look at your offerings of peace. Away with your hymns of praise—they are mere noise to my ears. I will not listen to your music, no matter how lovely it is. I want to see a mighty flood of justice—a torrent of doing good. You sacrificed to me for  years while you were in the desert, Israel—but always your real interest has been in your heathen gods—in Sakkuth your king, and in Kaiwan your god of the stars, and in all the images of them you made. So I will send them into captivity with you far to the east of Damascus, says the Lord, the Lord Almighty” (Amos 5:21-27, TLB).
