Isaiah 1:15 When you put on your next prayer-performance, I’ll be looking the other way. No matter how long or loud or often you pray, I’ll not be listening. And do you know why? Because you’ve been tearing people to pieces, and your hands are bloody. The people of Judah we very ‘religious’ but they were also accused of being evil. They gave sacrifices for their sins but they never showed any remorse for their sins and they never acknowledged the religious distractions in their lives that took their focus away from God.
Religious practices that don’t focus on Jesus mean nothing
Religious practices that don’t lead to action are pointless.
