Kiiitor of Advance Amos denounced the social sins of hfa day and made a strong plea for social Justice. He was a prophet of truth, declaring- the sure judgments of Ooil Is full of kindness and forgiveness wwnrc! those who seek His ways and turn from evil, The prophet ivho emphasizes tills .side of truth !s more likely to have in his utterances the note of appeal, the in- vltiitlon to man to seek this God of love nnd righteousness and lind wo fullness of His mercy. * * w Amos, of ..course, stressed this side ns well. The whole purpose ot is arraignment of the society ot his day was to turn men from their evil ways and to build up R true society.

Surely, Just as the words of Amos have such keen and forceful application to our own time BO these words or Hosea come to men and women in u modern society, ninny of whom have wandered away from God, and wlio will find peace and restoration only in the path of wisdom which Is the way of repentance and acceptance of God's forgiveness.
