Fake Worship and Vulnerable People

Mission and Equipping Pastor, Rodney Howell, walks through Isaiah 1 and how some aspects of God’s will for us are crystal clear in the Bible. The first chapter of Isaiah shows us what God desires all of His people to stop doing, start doing, and consider in light of what He has already done.
