Counterfeit Gods (Sermon) (Habakkuk 2:18-20)
Pastor Jeff Hamling, October 16, 2016
Part of the Habakkuk: When God Doesn’t Make Sense series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
18 “What profit is an idol
when its maker has shaped it,
a metal image, a teacher of lies?
For its maker trusts in his own creation
when he makes speechless idols!
19 Woe to him who says to a wooden thing, Awake;
to a silent stone, Arise!
Can this teach?
Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver,
and there is no breath at all in it.
20 But the Lord is in his holy temple;
let all the earth keep silence before him.”
