BP Notes Amos, Brueggemann Prophets – Isaiah=taking Think of prophets as social critics or: One who is called to speak for another (ambassador) Visionary/Seer Prophets and Prediction Open – If/Then Statements – Isaiah 1:18-20 example: o “Come now, let us argue this out,” say the LORD. “No matter how deep the stain of yours sin, I can remove it. I can make you as clean as freshly fallen snow. Even if you are stained as red as crimson, I can make you as white as wool. If you will only obey men and let me help you, then you will have plenty to eat. But if you keep turning away and refusing to listen, then you will be destroyed by your enemies. I, the LORD, have spoken!” Deterministic Enculturation – idea of church being so engulfed in consumerism – buyers and sellers (demand) Does this keep the church from believing or acting? If you push away, the church members will go somewhere else Concern comes when it affects the message of the churches Rarely find prophets in power structure. Amos – straight-up kind of guy – doesn’t want to call himself a prophet.
