Amos 5:21 – 26
21 I hate, I despise your feast days, and I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.
22 Though ye offer me burnt offerings and your meat offerings, I will not accept them: neither will I regard the peace offerings of your fat beasts.
23 Take thou away from me the noise of thy songs; for I will not hear the melody of thy viols.
24 But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.
25 Have ye offered unto me sacrifices and offerings in the wilderness forty years, O house of Israel?
26 But ye have borne the tabernacle of your Moloch and Chiun your images, the star of your god, which ye made to yourselves.

So is this the venue for the work of God.?
So is this the way God builds his church? I wonder?
Brian’s false gospel of accepting Jesus as ‘Lord of your heart’
One young man’s thoughts;
This is really a dynamic church that is affiliated with the world renown Hillsong Church based in Sydney, Australia. They are currently holding their services in the Belasco Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. I’ve never been to the Belasco before so it was a good opportunity to be able to see the ornate architectured ceiling inside. It’s a dance club at night so it makes it interesting.
Hillsong was made internationally known for their Sydney worship team that had put out many worship albums and so worship teams in churches all over the world would play and still play their music during their service. The music here is great too and they had just put out a new album recently which I intend to purchase at my first opportunity.
The church welcoming committee is really cool. It seems all the volunteers greet you with a warm smile, wave or handshake which makes you feel really welcome and loved.
The message was very good and something I’ve been looking for, for a really, really long time. It was both encouraging and thought provoking.
Parking is $5 in the multiple lots adjacent and across the street. They have services at 11 am, 5:30 pm and another one at 8 pm. I’m told the 11 am and 5:30 pm services both share the same messages but the message for the 8 pm service is different. They have mid week services at four different locations around town such as DTLA, Hollywood, Orange County and Glendale. You can get the exact locations by sending them an email on their website.
If you visit here or start attending, I truly believe your life will be changed for the better. I’m so thankful I felt lead to come visit today. It was my first visit but will definitely not be my last.
