Great idols

Great idols

Acts 8:10
“and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, “This man is the divine power known as the Great Power.”

The Great Power. Well it is some title. One which he gladly welcomed. He certainly didn’t object and he performed to fool them into continuing their worship.
People long for power and if they don’t they long to follow people with it.
I travel overseas a lot as you may know and I see this dark side of Christianity all too often. Billboards line the roads with Christian preachers, but not just preachers. These are great preachers. Great men. Great prophets. Great Great Great.
We don’t have advertisements like that. But we do have our heroes, our great heroes. We make them stars in our eyes, they become our heroes and we may even use them to bring us closer to God. All these are idols. We still build idols. They are great idols.
