Idols Made by Men

Idols Made by Men

In Isaiah 40, we learned of idols that were made by men.  Throughout history, we know that people have worshipped “gods” and we know that people made them up.  Ever wonder why? God instilled in us a knowledge of “there is more to life than this” and that there is “some higher power”. Some people just don’t know where to look so they symbolize it.  But here is an interesting point. Jesus factually lived.  It is documented. Another point, it…

We are all sinners

We are all sinners

In Romans 3, Paul levels the playing field for all of us.

A Look in the Mirror

A Look in the Mirror

We have finished 1 Samuel and have moved on to Isaiah in our ongoing bible study, and I noted something that I wanted to share that is a consistent, almost overwhelming theme throughout the Old Testament – that is, the ebs and flows of God’s people. They fail to keep God in His rightful place over and over and over again. To the point where I can’t help but question them harshly – “What a bunch of idiots, how can…
