OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWhy do the nations ask, “Where is their God?” Our God is in heaven. Their idols are made of silver and gold, the work of human hands. They have mouths, but they cannot speak. They have eyes, but they cannot see. People who make idols will be like them, and so will those who trust them. You who respect the Lord should trust him; he is your helper and your protection. (Psalms 115:2-5, 8, 11 NCV) Ancient peoples made physical idols, shaped from their own minds and with their own hands. We still create idols from our own imagination and will—some are physical, psychological, and even religious ones.
