“They went off and worshiped other gods and bowed down to them, gods they did not know, and gods he had not given them.” Deuteronomy 29:26
We have ONE life. We have ONE God. For this revelation, our lives are not given to us by ourselves. We are created by God and in His own image. He has the right to create us the way He wants. He could have designed us like the chimpanzee and we would have live our lives in the forest, eating away the grass.
God knows why He chooses to create us like him and gives us the dominion over all the animals in the air, the sea and on the earth.
Therefore why must you become so stubborn as to abandon your maker and instead go for the gods who are nothing but mere waste? There is nowhere in the bible that God ordered us to mix up our salvation with serving other gods.
He created us so that we can live with freedom and love for one another. God does not authorise us to worship other gods. He does not force any impurity on us. God wants us to acknowledge Him and Him alone.
If your life is not deeply rooted in God’s divine love, then you must be ready to change and do away with all the gods. Imagine you bowing down to a carved idol? How do you feel?
It is easy to be forgiven but it is more dangerous when you have to be keep doing the same thing over and over again. Keep off from any barbaric acts. Worship God only. And DO not BOW to any false image, rather, BOW to the KING of kings!
