Deuteronomy 5:8 “You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.”

I. A Desire for the Tangible
Romans 1:22-23 “Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.”
-History of idol worship
-Iconoclast revolts
Isaiah 44:14-20 Half of the wood he burns in the fire;
over it he prepares his meal,
he roasts his meat and eats his fill.
He also warms himself and says,
“Ah! I am warm; I see the fire.”
17 From the rest he makes a god, his idol;
he bows down to it and worships.
He prays to it and says,
“Save me! You are my god!”

II. Worshiping the Spiritual
-Consumed by the perishable 1 Corinthians 15:52-58
-Consumed with the shelter Mark 9:1-6
