Man Made Gods Man Made Gods Presentation Transcript

  • Man made gods
  • A craftsman
  • cuts down
    a tree
  • and uses part of it to build a fire
  • to cook
    his meal
  • and warm himself
  • With the rest
    of the wood
  • the craftsman
    makes
    an Idol
  • before which he
    bows and cries
    for deliverance!
  • This is no myth or story! But taken from the bible.
    A man cuts down cedars for himself, and takes the cypress and the oak; He secures it for himself among the trees of the forest. He plants a pine, and the rain nourishes it.Then it shall be for a man to burn, for he will take some of it and warm himself; Yes, he kindles itand bakes bread; Indeed he makes a god and worships it; He makes it a carved image, and falls down to it. He burns half of it in the fire; with this half he eats meat; He roasts a roast, and is satisfied. He even warms himself and says, “Ah! I am warm, I have seen the fire.”And the rest of it he makes into a god, His carved image. He falls down before it and worships it,Prays to it and says, “Deliver me, for you are my god!” Isaiah 44:14-17.
  • What is an Idol?
    1. a. An image used as an object of worship.
    1. b. A false god.
    2. One that is adored, often blindly or greatly.
    3. Something visible but without substance.
  • May I warn you?
    Take care in what you worship!
    Or it will become your Idol, your god!
    And never, never place your trust in a god that is MAN MADE, for it will truly fail you!
