Call me Baal

Be careful not to forget the covenant of the LORD your God that he made with you; do not make for yourselves an idol in the form of anything the LORD your God has forbidden. Deuteronomy 4:23

Gather together and come; assemble, you fugitives from the nations. Ignorant are those who carry about idols of wood, who pray to gods that cannot save. Isaiah 45:20

They lift it to their shoulders and carry it; they set it up in its place, and there it stands. From that spot it cannot move. Though one cries out to it, it does not answer; it cannot save him from his troubles. Isaiah 46:7

And Money is the idol that has brought down the American empire. Hopefully that is going to change soon and we can once again set the standard and lead by example as Jesus did. For far too long this country has not practiced what we preach to other countries, and the mantra has been "do as we say, not as we do." It's time for good stewardship, leadership and concern for all people, not just the wealthy one's with the biggest idols.
