One of the most needed things in the world is world peace and truth. We can get these things through God if we repent. But there are many people who think of repentance as a stupid idea. This is the case in the book of Amos as well. Many countries, including Israel, were very sinful but did not want anything to do with repentance. God was furious with the people for this, but he never stopped loving them. He told them to repent many times and tried to help the people. However, they would not listen so God had to make a hard decision. He gives reasons saying, "But you have turned justice into poison and the fruit of righteousness into wormwood... Indeed, I am raising up against you a nation." (Amos 6:12,14) Even hearing all of this, the people did not repent. Then God did raise people against them over and over. They definitely didn't want to rely on God whatsoever. But things have changed and we should repent and love God with all we can.
I am thankful for my Catholic faith and for being raised Catholic by my parents.
