Tonight I want to speak to you from the seventh chapter of Amos on God's plumbline. This is a terrific chapter, we've dealt with just a little bit of it but we didn't get to the main portion, the portion about the plumbline and it's a very important thing that we find here in the book of Amos because it's parallel to what's going on in the world today.
