Is This Wrong?

I am stealing this post from another blog (Life with the Hildebrands). It puts everything in sobering perspective.

Is this okay...

...while this still exists?

The Hebrew Scriptures have a very simple and direct message:

God always hears the cry of the oppressed:

God cares about human suffering and the conditions that cause it.

God is searching for a body, a community of people to care for the things God cares about.

God gives power and blessing so that justice and righteousness will be upheld for those who are denied them.

This is what God is like. This is what God is about. This is who God is.

To forget this, to fail to hear the cry, to preserve prosperity at the expense of the powerless, is to miss what God has in mind.
