Isaiah 10:1-6 THE HEBREWS PROPHETS: Isaiah & Amos"Woe to those who make unjust laws, to those who issue oppressive decrees , to deprivethe poor of their rights and withhold justice from the oppressed of my people. Makingwidows their prey and robbing the fatherless. What will you do on the day of the reckoning,when disaster comes from afar? To whom will you run for help? Where will you leave your riches?

For all the wrongs committed in society against one another and against oneself; as the sacred body that be. Harming thy brethren, killing thy neighbor, steeling. All to satisfy the wants for themselves. It is all competitive. Part of my heritage being of Blackfoot Indian descent, the way of life is to create and live life from the gifts of nature in which thy God provided. I can almost guarantee the society today living of monetary value, would not know how to survive if everything all of a sudden were taken away. A sudden exhausting rainfall, which flooded the cities, and devoured the homes, and cars, and other belongings. Some consider this to...
