Amos 8:1-12

“Trample Down Economics?”

The prophets were the economic forecasters of ancient Israel, and Amos was among the most explicit.  Here he lays out the ways in which a financial structure in which the rich benefit and the poor are exploited will destroy not only people but a whole nation.  How we think and act with regard to people, power, money, and structures matters – to God, and therefore for us.  What can we learn from these words of prophecy?
