This Week's Quote - Bryant Myers

In the prophets we learn a great deal about how idolatry and injustice are related. When God, speaking through Isaiah, deplores “meaningless offering” and “evil assemblies,” Jerusalem is told, not to improve its worship in the temple, but to “stop doing wrong, learn to do right, to seek justice and encourage the oppressed, to defend the cause of the fatherless and plead the case of the widow” (Is 1:17). Loving God and loving neighbor are a seamless whole.
- Bryant L. Myers (1999)
