The prophet Amos reflects God's distaste for a faith and worship life that doesn't extend beyond sanctuary, sabbath, and the select community. The faithful may prise God, but they exploit the poor, use bribery to corrupt justice, and scorn God's people.
The blessings that of the faithful, great mansions and lush vineyards, will not be enjoyed by those who have a one day faith.
