Daddy blog

I started this blog when I was following the Life Journal Bible reading plan on YouVersion. (I've since completed that plan.) At that time, YouVersion didn't provide any way for people to respond to my notes, other than to "like" them. So this blog is here to remedy that problem. You may comment on my notes here in the comment section.
I also have a general blog.

Idle Idols


S: Isaiah 44:6-20

O: We Chinese-Malaysian Christians are sometimes still very Chinese-Malaysian in our beliefs and not Christian enough. Many of us Chinese-Malaysian Christians hold very superstitious views about idols. Many of us fear the idols we see around us and think that somehow they might "contaminate" us with negative spirituality.

However, this, and many other other passages in the Bible make it clear that idols are merely wood, gold, etc. and they do not do anything -- idols are idle!

Yes, it is true that there are demons, but the Bible makes it clear in passage after passage that idols themselves are only bad because people worship them instead of the LORD God.

A: Do not fear idols. Worship only the LORD God. Fear the LORD God and walk in confidence in Christ.

P: Father, thank You that greater is He who is in us than he who is in the world! In Jesus' name, amen.
