I have been spending a lot of time in Isaiah 41 recently. Throughout the chapter the Lord challenges false gods and those who worship them. The basic thrust is that false gods are mute and impotent–because men have cast and carved them with their own hands. These idols have no power to speak or act or to foretell the future..
I can’t help but think that our idols today are often the same–made by men and unworthy of worship. Yet they capture the Father’s children, and as the Apostle has said we must keep ourselves from these idols. Things like new BlackBerry smart phones, for instance.
