We Become What We Worship

"What you revere you resemble, either for ruin of for restoration" (G. K. Beale, We Become What We Worship, 11).

"The [idol] worshiper, rather than experiencing an expected life-giving blessing, has received a curse by becoming as spiritually inanimate, empty, rebellious or shameful as the idol is depicted to be" (Beale, 21).

"The idols of the nations are silver and gold, the work of human hands. They have mouths, but do not speak; they have eyes, but do not see; they have ears, but do not hear, nor is there any breath in their mouths. Those who make them become like them, so do all who trust in them" (Ps. 135:15-18)!

Before what idol do you bow down?
