Idolatry, Against

Genesis 31:34-35      AND RACHEL TOOK THE IDOLS, AND CAST THEM AMONG THE CAMEL'S PACKS, AND SAT UPON THEM.
    AND SHE SAID TO HER FATHER, “DO NOT BE INDIGNANT, SIR; I CANNOT RISE UP BEFORE YOU, FOR IT IS WITH ME ACCORDING TO THE MANNER OF WOMEN.” LABAN SEARCHED IN ALL THE DWELLING, AND FOUND NOT THE IDOLS.

Exodus 20:4-6      YOU SHALL NOT MAKE TO YOURSELF AN IDOL, NOR LIKENESS OF ANYTHING, WHATEVER THINGS ARE IN THE HEAVEN ABOVE, AND WHATEVER ARE IN THE EARTH BENEATH, AND WHATEVER ARE IN THE WATERS UNDER THE EARTH.
    YOU SHALL NOT BOW DOWN TO THEM, NOR SERVE THEM; FOR I AM JESUS YOUR THEOS, THE ALMIGHTY ALPHA, AM JEALOUS, REPAYING THE SINS OF THE FATHERS UPON THE CHILDREN, TO THE THIRD AND FOURTH GENERATION TO THEM THAT HATE ME,
    AND BESTOWING MERCY ON THEM THAT LOVE ME TO THOUSANDS OF THEM, AND ON THEM THAT KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS.

Deuteronomy 4:19      AND LEST HAVING LOOKED UP TO THE SKY, AND HAVING SEEN THE SUN AND THE MOON AND THE STARS, AND ALL THE HEAVENLY BODIES, YOU SHOULD GO ASTRAY AND WORSHIP THEM, AND SERVE THEM, WHICH JESUS YOUR THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) HAS DISTRIBUTED TO ALL THE NATIONS UNDER HEAVEN.

Deuteronomy 9:21      AND YOUR SIN WHICH YOU HAD MADE, EVEN THE CALF, I TOOK, AND BURNT IT WITH FIRE, AND POUNDED IT AND GROUND IT DOWN UNTIL IT BECAME FINE; AND IT BECAME LIKE DUST, AND I CAST THE DUST INTO THE BROOK THAT DESCENDED FROM THE MOUNTAIN.

Judges 6:31      AND GIDEON THE SON OF JOAS SAID TO ALL THE MEN WHO ROSE UP AGAINST HIM, “DO YOU NOW PLEAD FOR BAAL, OR WILL YOU SAVE HIM? WHOEVER WILL PLEAD FOR HIM, LET HIM BE SLAIN THIS MORNING: IF HE BE A GOD, LET HIM PLEAD FOR HIMSELF, BECAUSE ONE HAS THROWN DOWN HIS ALTAR.”

Judges 10:10-16      AND THE CHILDREN OF JESRAEL CRIED TO JESUS, SAYING, “WE HAVE SINNED AGAINST YOU, BECAUSE WE HAVE FORSAKEN THEOS (The Alpha & Omega), AND SERVED BAALIM.”
    AND JESUS SAID TO THE CHILDREN OF JESRAEL, “DID I NOT SAVE YOU FROM EGYPT AND FROM THE AMORITE, AND FROM THE CHILDREN OF AMMON, AND FROM THE PHILISTINES,
    AND FROM THE SIDONIANS, AND AMALEC, AND MADIAM, WHO AFFLICTED YOU? AND YOU CRIED TO ME, AND I SAVED YOU OUT OF THEIR HAND?
    YET YOU FORSOOK ME AND SERVED OTHER GODS; THEREFORE I WILL NOT SAVE YOU ANY MORE.
    GO, AND CRY TO THE GODS WHOM YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO YOURSELVES, AND LET THEM SAVE YOU IN THE TIME OF YOUR AFFLICTION.”
    AND THE CHILDREN OF JESRAEL SAID TO JESUS, “WE HAVE SINNED. YOU SHALL DO TO US ACCORDING TO ALL THAT IS GOOD IN YOUR EYES; ONLY DELIVER US THIS DAY.”
    AND THEY PUT AWAY THE FOREIGN GODS FROM THE MIDST OF THEM, AND SERVED JESUS ONLY, AND HIS SOUL WAS PAINED FOR THE TROUBLE OF JESRAEL.

1 Samuel 5:2-7      AND THE PHILISTINES TOOK THE ARK OF JESUS, AND BROUGHT IT INTO THE HOUSE OF DAGON, AND SET IT BY DAGON.
    AND THE PEOPLE OF AZOTUS ROSE EARLY, AND ENTERED INTO THE HOUSE OF DAGON; AND LOOKED, AND BEHOLD, DAGON HAD FALLEN ON HIS FACE BEFORE THE ARK OF JESUS: AND THEY LIFTED UP DAGON, AND SET HIM IN HIS PLACE. AND THE HAND OF JESUS WAS HEAVY UPON THE AZOTIANS, AND HE PLAGUED THEM, AND HE STRUCK THEM IN THEIR BUTTOCKS, AZOTUS AND HER COASTS.
    AND IT CAME TO PASS WHEN THEY ROSE EARLY IN THE MORNING, BEHOLD, DAGON HAD FALLEN ON HIS FACE BEFORE THE ARK OF THE COVENANT OF JESUS; AND THE HEAD OF DAGON AND BOTH THE PALMS OF HIS HANDS WERE CUT OFF EACH BEFORE THE THRESHOLD, AND BOTH THE WRISTS OF HIS HANDS HAD FALLEN ON THE FLOOR OF THE PORCH; ONLY THE STUMP OF DAGON WAS LEFT.
    THEREFORE THE PRIESTS OF DAGON, AND EVERY ONE THAT ENTERS INTO THE HOUSE OF DAGON, DO NOT TREAD UPON THE THRESHOLD OF THE HOUSE OF DAGON IN AZOTUS UNTIL THIS DAY, FOR THEY STEP OVER.
    AND THE HAND OF JESUS WAS HEAVY UPON AZOTUS, AND HE BROUGHT CALAMITY UPON THEM, AND IT BURST OUT UPON THEM INTO THE SHIPS, AND RATS/MICE SPRANG UP IN THE MIDST OF THEIR COUNTRY, AND THERE WAS A GREAT AND INDISCRIMINATE MORTALITY IN THE CITY.
    AND THE MEN OF AZOTUS SAW THAT IT WAS SO, AND THEY SAID, “THE ARK OF THE THEOS OF JESRAEL SHALL NOT ABIDE WITH US, FOR HIS HAND IS HEAVY UPON US AND UPON DAGON OUR GOD.”

1 Kings 18:27      AND IT WAS NOON, AND ELIU (Elijah) THE THESBITE MOCKED THEM, AND SAID, “CALL WITH A LOUD VOICE, FOR HE IS A GOD? FOR HE IS MEDITATING? OR ELSE PERHAPS HE IS ENGAGED IN BUSINESS? OR PERHAPS HE IS ASLEEP? AND IS TO BE AWAKENED?”

1 Chronicles 16:26      FOR ALL THE GODS OF THE NATIONS ARE IDOLS; BUT OUR THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) MADE THE HEAVENS.

2 Chronicles 15:16      AND HE REMOVED MAACHA HIS MOTHER FROM BEING PRIESTESS TO EASTER; AND HE CUT DOWN THE IDOL, AND BURNT IT IN THE BROOK OF KEDRON.

Tobit 14:6      AND ALL NATIONS SHALL TURN, AND FEAR THE LORD THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) TRULY, AND SHALL BURY THEIR IDOLS.

Psalm 97:7      LET ALL THAT WORSHIP GRAVEN IMAGES BE ASHAMED, WHO BOAST OF THEIR IDOLS; WORSHIP HIM, ALL YOU HIS ANGELS.

Isaiah 1:29      FOR THEY SHALL BE ASHAMED OF THEIR IDOLS, WHICH THEY DELIGHTED IN, AND THEY ARE MADE ASHAMED OF THE GARDENS WHICH THEY COVETED.

Isaiah 2:18-21      AND THEY SHALL HIDE ALL IDOLS MADE WITH HANDS,
    HAVING CARRIED THEM INTO THE CAVES, AND INTO THE CLEFTS OF THE ROCKS, AND INTO THE CAVERNS OF THE EARTH, FOR FEAR OF JESUS, AND BECAUSE OF THE GLORY OF HIS POWER, WHEN HE SHALL ARISE TO STRIKE TERRIBLY THE EARTH.
    FOR IN THAT DAY A MAN SHALL CAST FORTH HIS SILVER AND GOLD ABOMINATIONS, WHICH THEY MADE IN ORDER TO WORSHIP VANITIES AND BATS;
    TO ENTER INTO THE CAVERNS OF THE SOLID ROCK, AND INTO THE CLEFTS OF THE ROCKS, FOR FEAR OF JESUS, AND BECAUSE OF THE GLORY OF HIS POWER, WHEN HE SHALL ARISE TO STRIKE TERRIBLY THE EARTH.

Isaiah 10:10-11      AS I HAVE TAKEN THEM, I WILL ALSO TAKE ALL THE KINGDOMS: HOWL, YOU IDOLS IN JERUSALEM, AND IN SAMARIA.
    FOR AS I DID TO SAMARIA AND HER IDOLS, SO WILL I DO ALSO TO JERUSALEM AND HER IDOLS.’”

Isaiah 21:9      AND, BEHOLD, HE COMES RIDING IN A CHARIOT AND PAIR: AND HE ANSWERED AND SAID, “BABYLON IS FALLEN, IS FALLEN! AND ALL HER IMAGES AND HER IDOLS HAVE BEEN CRUSHED TO THE GROUND.”

Isaiah 42:8      I AM JESUS, THEOS (The Alpha & Omega): THAT IS MY NAME: I WILL NOT GIVE MY GLORY TO ANOTHER, NOR MY PRAISES TO GRAVEN IMAGES.

Isaiah 44:9-21      BUT THEY THAT FRAMED FALSE GODS DID NOT THEN HEARKEN; AND THEY THAT ENGRAVED/CARVED IMAGES ARE ALL VAIN, PERFORMING THEIR OWN DESIRES, WHICH SHALL NOT PROFIT THEM, BUT THEY SHALL BE ASHAMED
    THAT FORM A GOD, AND ALL THAT CARVE WORTHLESS THINGS:
    AND ALL BY WHOM THEY WERE MADE ARE WITHERED: YES, LET ALL THE DEAF BE GATHERED FROM AMONG MEN, AND LET THEM STAND TOGETHER; AND LET THEM BE ASHAMED AND HUMILIATED TOGETHER:
    FOR THE CRAFTSMAN SHARPENS THE IRON; HE FASHIONS THE IDOL WITH AN AXE, AND FIXES IT WITH AN AWL, AND FASHIONS IT WITH THE STRENGTH OF HIS ARM: AND HE WILL BE HUNGRY AND WEAK, AND WILL DRINK NO WATER.
    THE CRAFTSMAN HAVING CHOSEN A PIECE OF WOOD, MARKS IT OUT WITH A RULE, AND FITS IT WITH GLUE, AND MAKES IT AS THE FORM OF A MAN, AND AS THE BEAUTY OF A MAN, TO SET IT UP IN THE HOUSE.
    HE CUTS WOOD OUT OF THE FOREST, WHICH JESUS PLANTED, EVEN A PINE TREE, AND THE RAIN MADE IT GROW,
    THAT IT MIGHT BE FOR MEN TO BURN: AND HAVING TAKEN PART OF IT HE WARMS HIMSELF; YES, THEY BURN PART OF IT, AND BAKE LOAVES THEREON; AND OF THE REST THEY MAKE FOR THEMSELVES GODS, AND THEY WORSHIP THEM.
    HALF THEREOF HE BURNS IN THE FIRE, AND WITH HALF OF IT HE BAKES LOAVES ON THE COALS; AND HAVING ROASTED FLESH ON IT HE EATS, AND IS SATISFIED, AND HAVING WARMED HIMSELF HE SAYS, “I AM COMFORTABLE, FOR I HAVE WARMED MYSELF, AND HAVE SEEN THE FIRE.”
    AND THE REST HE MAKES A CARVED GOD, AND WORSHIPS AND PRAYS, SAYING, “DELIVER ME; FOR YOU ARE MY GOD.”
    THEY HAVE NO UNDERSTANDING TO PERCEIVE; FOR THEY HAVE BEEN BLINDED SO THAT THEY SHOULD NOT SEE WITH THEIR EYES, NOR PERCEIVE WITH THEIR HEART.
    AND ONE HAS NOT CONSIDERED IN HIS MIND, NOR KNOWN IN HIS UNDERSTANDING, THAT HE HAS BURNT UP HALF OF IT IN THE FIRE, AND BAKED LOAVES ON THE COALS THEREOF AND HAS ROASTED AND EATEN FLESH, AND OF THE REST OF IT HE HAS MADE AN ABOMINATION, AND THEY WORSHIP IT.
    “KNOW YOU THAT THEIR HEART IS ASHES, AND THEY ERR, AND NO ONE IS ABLE TO DELIVER HIS SOUL: SEE, YOU WILL NOT SAY, ‘THERE IS A LIE IN MY RIGHT HAND.’
    REMEMBER THESE THINGS, O JACOB AND JESRAEL; FOR YOU ARE MY SERVANT; I HAVE FORMED YOU TO BE MY SERVANT: AND DO YOU, JESRAEL, NOT FORGET ME.

Isaiah 46:1-2      BEL HAS FALLEN, NABO IS BROKEN TO PIECES, THEIR GRAVEN IMAGES ARE GONE TO THE WILD BEASTS AND THE CATTLE: YOU TAKE THEM PACKED UP AS A BURDEN TO THE WEARY, EXHAUSTED, HUNGRY, AND AT THE SAME TIME HELPLESS MAN;
    WHO WILL NOT BE ABLE TO SAVE THEMSELVES FROM WAR, BUT THEY THEMSELVES ARE LED AWAY CAPTIVE.

Jeremiah 10:1-11      HEAR YOU THE WORD OF JESUS, WHICH HE HAS SPOKEN TO YOU, O HOUSE OF JESRAEL.
    THUS SAITH JESUS, “DO NOT LEARN THE WAYS OF THE HEATHEN, AND DO NOT REVERENCE/WORSHIP THE SIGNS OF THE SKY; FOR THEY REVERENCE/WORSHIP THEM, FALLING ON THEIR FACES.
    FOR THE CUSTOMS/TRADITIONS OF THE NATIONS ARE VAIN; IT IS A TREE CUT OUT OF THE FOREST, THE WORK OF THE CARPENTER, OR A MOLTEN IMAGE.
    THEY ARE BEAUTIFIED WITH SILVER AND GOLD, THEY FIX THEM WITH HAMMERS AND NAILS;
    THEY WILL SET THEM UP THAT THEY MAY NOT MOVE;”
    IT IS WORKED SILVER, THEY WILL NOT WALK, IT IS FORGED SILVER brought FROM THARSIS, GOLD WILL COME FROM MOPHAZ, AND THE WORK OF GOLDSMITHS: they are ALL THE WORKS OF CRAFTSMEN, THEY WILL CLOTHE THEMSELVES WITH BLUE AND SCARLET.
    THEY MUST BE LIFTED, FOR THEY CANNOT MOUNT THEMSELVES. FEAR THEM NOT; FOR THEY CANNOT DO ANY EVIL, AND THERE IS NO GOOD IN THEM.
    THUS SHALL YOU SAY TO THEM, “LET THE GODS WHICH HAVE NOT MADE HEAVEN AND EARTH PERISH FROM OFF THE EARTH, AND FROM UNDER THIS SKY.”

Baruch 6:8, 21-23, 65, 72-73      AS FOR THEIR TONGUE, IT IS POLISHED BY THE WORKMAN, AND THEY THEMSELVES ARE GILDED AND LAID OVER WITH SILVER; YET ARE THEY BUT FALSE, AND CANNOT SPEAK.
    THEIR FACES ARE BLACKED THROUGH THE SMOKE THAT COMES OUT OF THE TEMPLE.
    UPON THEIR BODIES AND HEADS SIT BATS, SWALLOWS, AND BIRDS, AND THE CATS ALSO.
    BY THIS YOU MAY KNOW THAT THEY ARE NO GODS: THEREFORE DO NOT FEAR THEM.
    KNOWING THEREFORE THAT THEY ARE NO GODS, DO NOT FEAR THEM,
    AND YOU SHALL KNOW THEM TO BE NOT GODS BY THE BRIGHT PURPLE linen THAT ROTS ON THEM: AND THEY THEMSELVES AFTERWARD SHALL BE EATEN, AND SHALL BE A DISGRACE IN THE LAND.
    BETTER THEREFORE IS THE RIGHTEOUS MAN THAT HAS NO IDOLS: FOR HE SHALL BE FAR FROM DISGRACE.

Ezekiel 8:12-18      AND HE SAID TO ME, “YOU HAVE SEEN, SON OF HUMANS, WHAT THE ELDERS OF THE HOUSE OF JESRAEL DO, EACH ONE OF THEM IN THEIR SECRET CHAMBER: BECAUSE THEY HAVE SAID, ‘JESUS SEES NOT; JESUS HAS FORSAKEN THE EARTH’.”
    AND HE SAID TO ME, “YOU SHALL SEE YET GREATER INIQUITIES WHICH THESE DO.”
    AND HE BROUGHT ME IN TO THE PORCH OF THE HOUSE OF JESUS THAT LOOKS TO THE NORTH; AND, BEHOLD THERE WERE WOMEN SITTING THERE LAMENTING FOR TAMMUZ.
    AND HE SAID TO ME, “SON OF HUMANS, YOU HAVE SEEN; BUT YOU SHALL YET SEE EVIL PRACTICES GREATER THAN THESE.”
    AND HE BROUGHT ME INTO THE INNER COURT OF THE HOUSE OF JESUS, AND AT THE ENTRANCE OF THE TEMPLE OF JESUS, BETWEEN THE PORCH AND THE ALTAR, WERE ABOUT TWENTY MEN, WITH THEIR BACKS TOWARD THE TEMPLE OF JESUS, AND THESE WORSHIPPED THE SUN TOWARD THE EAST.
    AND HE SAID TO ME, “SON OF HUMANS, YOU HAVE SEEN THIS. IS IT A LITTLE THING TO THE HOUSE OF JUDAH TO PRACTICE THE INIQUITIES WHICH THEY HAVE PRACTICED HERE? FOR THEY HAVE FILLED THE LAND WITH INIQUITY: AND RETURNED TO PROVOKE TO ANGER; AND BEHOLD, THESE STRETCH OUT THE VINE BRANCH AS MOCKERS.
    THEREFORE I WILL DEAL WITH THEM IN WRATH: MY EYE SHALL NOT SPARE, NOR WILL I HAVE ANY MERCY.”

Daniel 2:34-35      YOU SAW UNTIL A STONE WAS CUT OUT OF A MOUNTAIN WITHOUT HANDS, AND IT STRUCK THE IMAGE UPON ITS FEET OF IRON AND CLAY, AND UTTERLY REDUCED THEM TO POWDER!
    THEN ONCE FOR ALL THE CLAY, THE IRON, THE BRASS, THE SILVER, THE GOLD, WERE GROUND TO POWDER, AND BECAME AS CHAFF FROM THE SUMMER THRESHING FLOOR; AND THE VIOLENCE OF THE WIND CARRIED THEM AWAY, AND NO PLACE WAS FOUND FOR THEM: AND THE STONE WHICH HAD STRUCK THE IMAGE BECAME A GREAT MOUNTAIN, AND FILLED ALL THE EARTH.

Bel and the Dragon 1:6-7      THEN SAID THE KING UNTO HIM, “DO YOU NOT THINK THAT BEL IS A LIVING GOD? DON'T YOU SEE HOW MUCH HE EATS AND DRINKS EVERY DAY?”
    THEN DANIEL SMILED, AND SAID, “O KING, BE NOT DECEIVED: FOR THIS IS BUT CLAY WITHIN, AND BRASS OUTSIDE, AND DID NEVER EAT OR DRINK ANY THING.”

Micah 1:7      AND THEY SHALL CUT IN PIECES ALL THE GRAVEN IMAGES, AND ALL THAT SHE HAS HIRED THEY SHALL BURN WITH FIRE, AND I WILL UTTERLY DESTROY ALL HER IDOLS: BECAUSE SHE HAS GATHERED OF THE HIRES OF FORNICATION, AND OF THE HIRES OF FORNICATION HAS SHE AMASSED WEALTH.

Micah 5:13      AND I WILL UTTERLY DESTROY YOUR GRAVEN IMAGES, AND YOUR STATUES OUT OF THE MIDST OF YOU; AND YOU SHALL NEVER ANY MORE WORSHIP THE WORKS OF YOUR HANDS.

Zechariah 13:2      AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS IN THAT DAY,” SAITH JESUS OF HOSTS, “THAT I WILL UTTERLY DESTROY THE NAMES OF THE IDOLS FROM OFF THE LAND, AND THERE SHALL BE NO LONGER ANY REMEMBRANCE OF THEM: AND I WILL CUT OFF THE FALSE PROPHETS AND THE EVIL SPIRIT FROM THE LAND.

Wisdom 14:10-17      FOR THAT WHICH IS MADE SHALL BE PUNISHED TOGETHER WITH HIM THAT MADE IT.
    THEREFORE EVEN UPON THE IDOLS OF THE GENTILES SHALL THERE BE A VISITATION: BECAUSE IN THE CREATION OF THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) THEY ARE BECOME AN ABOMINATION, AND STUMBLING BLOCKS TO THE SOULS OF MEN, AND A SNARE TO THE FEET OF THE UNWISE.
    FOR THE DEVISING OF IDOLS WAS THE BEGINNING OF SPIRITUAL FORNICATION, AND THE INVENTION OF THEM THE CORRUPTION OF LIFE.
    FOR NEITHER WERE THEY FROM THE BEGINNING, NEITHER SHALL THEY BE FOREVER.
    FOR BY THE VAIN GLORY OF MEN THEY ENTERED INTO THE WORLD, AND THEREFORE SHALL THEY COME SHORTLY TO AN END.
    FOR A FATHER AFFLICTED WITH UNTIMELY MOURNING, WHEN HE HAS MADE AN IMAGE OF HIS CHILD SOON TAKEN AWAY, NOW HONOURED HIM AS A GOD, WHICH WAS THEN A DEAD MAN, AND DELIVERED TO THOSE THAT WERE UNDER HIM CEREMONIES AND SACRIFICES.
    THUS IN PROCESS OF TIME AN UNGODLY CUSTOM GROWN STRONG WAS KEPT AS A LAW, AND GRAVEN IMAGES WERE WORSHIPPED BY THE COMMANDMENTS OF KINGS.
    WHOM MEN COULD NOT HONOUR IN PRESENCE, BECAUSE THEY DWELT FAR OFF, THEY TOOK THE COUNTERFEIT OF HIS VISAGE FROM AFAR, AND MADE AN EXPRESS IMAGE OF A KING WHOM THEY HONOURED, TO THE END THAT BY THIS THEIR FORWARDNESS THEY MIGHT FLATTER HIM THAT WAS ABSENT, AS IF HE WERE PRESENT.

Acts 17:22-30      SO PAULOS (Paul) STOOD IN THE MIDST OF THE AREIOS PAGOS AND SAID, "MEN OF ATHENS, I OBSERVE THAT YOU ARE VERY RELIGIOUS IN ALL RESPECTS.
    "FOR WHILE I WAS PASSING THROUGH AND EXAMINING THE OBJECTS OF YOUR WORSHIP, I ALSO FOUND AN ALTAR WITH THIS INSCRIPTION, 'TO AN UNKNOWN THEOS.' THEREFORE WHAT YOU WORSHIP IN IGNORANCE, THIS I PROCLAIM TO YOU.
    "THE THEOS (The Alpha & Omega) WHO MADE THE WORLD AND ALL THINGS IN IT, SINCE HE IS LORD OF HEAVEN AND EARTH, DOES NOT DWELL IN TEMPLES MADE WITH HANDS;
    NOR IS HE SERVED BY HUMAN HANDS, AS THOUGH HE NEEDED ANYTHING, SINCE HE HIMSELF GIVES TO ALL, LIFE AND BREATH AND ALL THINGS;
    AND HE MADE FROM ONE man EVERY NATION OF MANKIND TO LIVE ON ALL THE FACE OF THE EARTH, HAVING DETERMINED their APPOINTED TIMES AND THE BOUNDARIES OF THEIR HABITATION,
    THAT THEY WOULD SEEK THEOS, IF PERHAPS THEY MIGHT GROPE FOR HIM AND FIND HIM, THOUGH HE IS NOT FAR FROM EACH ONE OF US;
    FOR IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE AND EXIST, AS EVEN SOME OF YOUR OWN POETS HAVE SAID, 'FOR WE ALSO ARE HIS CHILDREN.'
    "BEING THEN THE CHILDREN OF THEOS, WE OUGHT NOT TO THINK THAT THE DIVINE NATURE IS LIKE GOLD OR SILVER OR STONE, AN IMAGE FORMED BY THE ART AND THOUGHT OF MANKIND.
    "TRULY, THE THEOS OVERLOOKED IGNORANCE IN PAST TIMES, BUT NOW DECLARES TO ALL HUMANITY, EVERYWHERE, TO REPENT,

Romans 1:20-28      FOR SINCE THE CREATION OF THE WORLD HIS INVISIBLE ATTRIBUTES, HIS ETERNAL POWER AND DIVINE NATURE, HAVE BEEN CLEARLY SEEN, BEING UNDERSTOOD THROUGH WHAT HAS BEEN MADE, SO THAT THEY ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE.
    FOR EVEN THOUGH THEY KNEW THEOS (The Alpha & Omega), THEY DID NOT HONOUR HIM AS THEOS OR GIVE THANKS, BUT THEY BECAME FUTILE IN THEIR SPECULATIONS, AND THEIR FOOLISH HEART WAS DARKENED.
    PROFESSING TO BE WISE, THEY BECAME FOOLS,
    AND EXCHANGED THE GLORY OF THE INCORRUPTIBLE THEOS FOR AN IMAGE IN THE FORM OF CORRUPTIBLE MAN AND OF BIRDS AND FOUR FOOTED ANIMALS AND CRAWLING CREATURES.
    THEREFORE THEOS GAVE THEM OVER IN THE LUSTS OF THEIR HEARTS TO IMPURITY, SO THAT THEIR BODIES WOULD BE DISHONOURED AMONG THEM.
    FOR THEY EXCHANGED THE TRUTH OF THEOS FOR A LIE, AND WORSHIPPED AND SERVED THE CREATURE/CREATION RATHER THAN THE CREATOR, WHO IS BLESSED FOREVER. THIS IS TRUE!
    FOR THIS REASON THEOS GAVE THEM OVER TO DEGRADING PASSIONS; FOR THEIR WOMEN EXCHANGED THE NATURAL FUNCTION FOR THAT WHICH IS UNNATURAL,
    AND IN THE SAME WAY ALSO THE MEN ABANDONED THE NATURAL FUNCTION OF THE WOMAN AND BURNED IN THEIR DESIRE TOWARD ONE ANOTHER, MEN WITH MEN COMMITTING INDECENT ACTS AND RECEIVING IN THEMSELVES THE DUE PENALTY OF THEIR ERROR.
    AND JUST AS THEY DID NOT SEE FIT TO ACKNOWLEDGE THEOS ANY LONGER, THEOS GAVE THEM OVER TO A DISQUALIFIED/UNPURE MIND, TO DO THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT PROPER,

1 Corinthians 10:14      THEREFORE, MY BELOVED, RUN FROM IDOLATRY.

Ephesians 5:5      FOR THIS YOU KNOW FOR SURE, THAT NO IMMORAL OR IMPURE PERSON OR COVETOUS MAN, WHO IS AN IDOLATER, HAS AN INHERITANCE IN THE KINGDOM OF CHRIST AND THEOS (The Alpha & Omega).

Revelation 2:14      'BUT I HAVE A FEW THINGS AGAINST YOU, BECAUSE YOU HAVE THERE SOME WHO HOLD THE TEACHING OF BALAAM, WHO KEPT TEACHING BALAK TO PUT A STUMBLING BLOCK BEFORE THE SONS OF JESRAEL, TO EAT THINGS SACRIFICED TO IDOLS AND TO COMMIT IMMORALITY.

Revelation 2:20      'BUT I HAVE AGAINST YOU, THAT YOU TOLERATE THE WOMAN JEZEBEL, WHO CALLS HERSELF A PROPHETESS, AND SHE TEACHES AND LEADS MY BOND-SERVANTS ASTRAY SO THAT THEY COMMIT IMMORALITY AND EAT THINGS SACRIFICED TO IDOLS.”
