The attached Sermon continues Pastor Smith’s chronological series, “Logos: A Journey of Faith, Hope, and Love.” The message is taken from the Book of Amos and contrasts the cultural implosion of ancient Israel with the United States in the 21st century. The presentation is intentionally slow and methodical.

Presented are three cultural characteristics of a dating nation:

1) A culture of liberated, brazen women: You can judge a nation and culture by the morality of its women. The women of Israel reflected the values and morality of the nation. (Amos 4)

2) A culture of lawlessness: Five things the people hated (Amos 5)

3) A culture of corruption: Three failures of Israel’s leaders (Amos 6)


The message closes with a message of HOPE bound up in the invitation to “Seek the LORD…Hate Evil, Seek Good, and Live”
