Sometimes I encounter believers who are ignorant of the fact there really are people today who bow and worship idols of wood and stone. They think that this phenomena is more or less something that is only found in their bible and it only took place with people in the ancient past. But this is still happening today! Really! All over the earth there are people who still worship idols of wood and stone and who would rather worship the creation instead of the Creator.
This practice is on full display right now on the Island of Hawaii. A large volcano is showing massive activity and spewing lava in numerous direction and the people witnessing the destruction are instead worshiping some false goddess hoping to appease her instead of taking their petitions to the one who made the heavens and the earth.
