  Ivory Houses & Fat Cows: The Excessive Nonsense of the Modern Christian Church by Joseph LoSardo

Topic: Sensuality
Scripture(s): Amos 3:13-15, Amos 4:1-5  
Description: Israel in the 8th century B.C. was self-satisfied; her churches were full; her people were religious; there was a great deal of activity in her midst; and she believed her material prosperity was evidence of God's favor. But God and His Word had been forgotten, His law forsaken, and His loving grace taken for granted. Instead of the name of the Lord, Israel ran into two towers – their homes and their temples – prosperity and religion – and God promised to destroy both. Once any people begin to amass expensive homes, power over other people, and large incomes, it is easy for them to find their identity in these things. There is a natural tendency for people to consider their security to be in their stuff. They will go to great extremes to protect that which they imagine themselves to have gained by right – and anything that would threaten their power or their status or their revenue – they will act even in immoral ways to maintain what they presume to be rightfully their own. Are we not falling into the same trap? Why should God not sweep away our western materialistic churches?

 In an age of soft encouraging messages 
This message is needed to rouse us out of our sins. Americans at times feel they are the last to be indicted by the way they are living. When a hard work equitite deserved it. Yet God has much against the luxurious sensual lifestyle most in North America indulge in. There is great need of repentance in the Church and to live in a more modest godly way.
