Imagined Idols

"Wherefore should the heathen say, Where is now their God?... Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands" (Psalm 115:2,4).  "Thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation" (Isaiah 17:10).  "We ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device… God… now commandeth all men everywhere to repent:  because He… will judge the world… by that Man whom He hath ordained; whereof He hath given assurance unto all men, in that He hath raised Him from the dead" (Acts 17:29-31). 

In view of all the evidence
That manifests the truth of God,
Idolatry does not make sense,
And ignorance is surely odd! 

God's hand is seen in all creation,
Which evolution can't explain,
And prophecies foretold salvation
Which Christ fulfilled when He was slain. 

Behold Him risen from the dead,
Fulfilling His prophetic Word. 
He'll come again, as He has said,
And judge the world, we are assured. 

Amid imagined idols, Lord,
By Your commission, we are sent.
Though Gospel truth may be ignored,
We pray that many will repent.
