Hearts far from God

I was reading in Isaiah this morning and came across this:
These people come near to me with their mouth.
and honor me with their lips,
but their hearts are far from me.
Their worship of me
is made up only of the rules of men.
Isaiah 29:13
Wow. What an indictment of the church today. We talk about him, at least on Sunday or during the week to the people who go to our church. We have a lot of moral rules, but do we live out the 2 greatest commandments? If someone were to ask God if you or I really loved him, what would He say? If someone were to ask God if you or I really loved people - obnoxious people, poor people, needy people, people of a different color, people out of gas on the side of the road on our way to church - what would He say?

-Just thinking out loud.
