No excuse for idolatry

Updated: Apr 14

Shalompeople of GOD. May the truth abound in your house.

Lévitique 26 : 1 (NIV)Do not make idols or set up an image or a sacred stone for yourselves, and do not place a carved stone in your land to bow down before it. I am the LORD your GOD.

In the time of JESUS, cameras did not exist. Therefore, any graphic, photographic, or statue of Him is a lie. Some would say to me, "We know very well that. But we need a symbolic representation"

So let's imagine that your husband or wife has gone to work in a distant region. And because he (she) does not have pictures of you, choose to put the picture of another in the living room, in his / her office, and at the bedside of your bed. Knowing, that this person isn't you, your husband (or your wife if you are a man), says to all visitors "Here is my other half". What would be your reaction? Certainly, you wouldn't appreciate it. You would ask him to get rid of this picture immediately. Perhaps you would accuse him of infidelity, contempt, and much more… Why then when it comes to GOD whom you say you worship, you consider it is not serious?

When Aaron made the golden calf, Did GOD approve (Exodus 31:18 - 32:29)? NO! NO! And Again NO! On the basis of what some seriously imagine that today, the LORD approves these statues and images before which people bow down? It is not a matter of opinion, beloved, either you read your Bible or you do not read it. Let's read some verses.

  • Exodus 32 : 8-10 (KJV)

8 They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.9 And the LORD said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiffnecked people:10 Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.

  • Isaiah 44:18 -19 (KJV)

They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they cannot see; and their hearts, that they cannot understand. And none considereth in his heart, neither is there knowledge nor understanding to say, I have burned part of it in the fire; yea, also I have baked bread upon the coals thereof; I have roasted flesh, and eaten it: and shall I make the residue thereof an abomination? shall I fall down to the stock of a tree?

  • Leviticus 26 :1 (KJV)

Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.

  • Exodus 20:3-5

Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy GOD am a jealous GOD...

  • Deuteronomy 16:21-22 (KJV)

Thou shalt not plant thee a grove of any trees near unto the altar of the LORD thy GOD, which thou shalt make thee. Neither shalt thou set thee up any image; which the LORD thy GOD hateth.

  • Deuteronomy 27:15 (KJV)

Cursed be the man that maketh any graven or molten image, an abomination unto the LORD, the work of the hands of the craftsman, and putteth it in a secret place. And all the people shall answer and say, Amen.

  • Leviticus 20 : 6-8 (NIV)

I will set my face against anyone who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute themselves by following them, and I will cut them off from their people. Consecrate yourselves and be holy, because I am the LORD your GOD. Keep my decrees and follow them. I am the LORD, who makes you holy.

Reading the above verses, the claim that Christians can worship or bow down before images or statues is a lie. Let’s read our Bibles and be Biblical. Victorious week!

Suggestion: In his book Jezabel Mise a Nu, Pastor Grégory Toussaint reveals the origin of the statutes of Mary. I strongly encourage you to read it.
