YO Isaiah: tell Israel what their problem is! –
They are very pious in church, and they fast regularly
But when they get back home, they beat their slaves and
ignore the needy
Do I the Lord care that you reguarly attend the proper services when you ignore the hungry and oppress the poor?
Instead – THIS is how you should worship me: free the slaves, share your abundance, house the homeless in your own house. Then i will bless you like you want me to, and answer you when you pray. Then you will live in the garden of eden, and last for generations. If you make your worship services no longer lies, if you extend the Sabbath rest to those who need it most, THEN I will raise you up, and restore you to your former glory.
[Isaiah 58 ESV]
