  1. One of your favorite holidays? Interesting, I don’t think I have ever heard that from an American before. I read Amos today this book is grand, the universal justice of God! It appears the “judgment” would fall on them as well (2:6). And yet because of this special place of God’s providence, “You only have I known of all the families of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.” (3:2) This book is sober to us in the so-called Judeo-Christian free world, God will and must judge us!

  2. Amen, my comment was a complementary in this age of dullness to God’s justice. But, it is God’s justice in the end, and not man’s..yes? This fallen world does not honor God in reality, but when it does with “His” light, there is blessing! Oh God bring us your light & life yet again!

  3. Your right there, but also GOD’s justice WILL come! We both know it, as men and shepherds of God! God always gets the last word! May it be with mercy and not with justice for His redemptive people!

  4. Christ is our “justice” and “judgment”…”The just for the unjust, that HE might bring us to God”! (1 Peter 3:18). Redemption is ongoing for the people of God. Can we who believe ever tire of our God? In Christ…never!

  5. Ah…but Fr. Robert, I’m not the normal American. I would prefer the translation of justice, but I get the picture. Amos is essential, I believe, in developing the idea of God’s justice.

  6. Amen, Fr. Robert. I believe that people believe if they ignore God’s justice long enough, it may never come. Eventually, maybe if it doesn’t ever come, God doesn’t exist.
