If you feel that God must care about the brokenness and pain in the world, you are right. That is why Christ came to proclaim justice and bring liberty to the oppressed. God never intended to get caught up into vain religiosity, God always intended set wrong things right. God values the action of His people beyond their attempts of a ceremony. Followers of Christ were rescued so that they could join the ministry of rescue. The grand narrative of Scripture speaks to a God who is in the business of bringing justice to an unjust world, and to see the Kingdom of God come.
