How you hate honest judges! How you despise people who tell the truth! You trample the poor, stealing their grain through taxes and unfair rent. Therefore, though you build beautiful stone houses, you will never live in them. Though you plant lush vineyards, you will never drink wine from them.
Amos 5:10-11 NLT
God will never approve the abuse of power, impunity, oppression, extortion, injustice, sin and abuse of the poor. He clearly says that those who enrich themselves through such practices may not enjoy its benefits. Therefore as Christians we should not hide, engage, and approve such unfair practices.
