We all worship something, stuck in bondage and adhere to idolatry.
You might say, I don’t believe in God, but the bible says not possible,
Everyone has saGod, whether or not it’s the God of the gospel.
You might not believe in God, but everyone has that one thing that’s king,
Even the dictionary defines God as what “whatever we make supreme”
It’s a theme, a thread, it’s inside of all human beings,
The fact we all worship, and no it’s not just about singing.
We are slaves to our possessions, we are always craving something new,
Reality check, if you can’t give it up, you don’t own it, it owns you.
That’s the bible, it says we’re all spiritual prostitutes, actually we’re worse.
Because at least prostitutes get paid for their works,
When all we get paid is a hearse
That’s why worship isn’t just behavior, it goes way into our core,
So ask yourself what is your God? What do you bow down before?
For example some of you in here don’t worship Jesus, you worship what He said,
Got theology in your head, but in your heart, poor, pitiful, naked, and dead.
Some worship in stadiums, some worship in bars.
We worship our possessions, we worship our cars,
We worship science, or we worship the arts,
But see it don’t matter what clothes your idol’s wearing, the disease is our hearts
Is to project an image of 'God', not just to create an image out of our own understanding. If 'God' is all knowing and the 'creator'... to even
fathom 'his' totality, as to his mindset, moralities, and doctrines... essentially you have only recreated yourself, your understanding and have
RATIONALIZED your comprehension based on a limited knowledge threshold as we are supreme ignorant beings.
Unfortunately, it's next to impossible to escape idolatry... and worship of counterfeit god's...
maybe that's why it was said...
Romans 12: 2
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve
what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will
To remove this world and the patterns of the material plane aiming at replacing that of which we worship with something outside of everything, is one
step in the right direction IMO. Although, there are obviously limits as we are subject to said 'material plane' of existence. Now the tricky part
is... what 'is' this 'God'....
So, what counterfeit gods have you been worshiping as of late?
My counterfeit god was and still kinda is geometry. There's a lot to that statement... but you have to base your philosophies on life on something...
It might seem silly to some... but it's not. Essentially, geometry and numbers(admittedly, there's a subjective nature behind numbers) are the
equivalent to god... IMO. The same went for many through out history. Even Hobbes used geometry in his reasoning for political philosophy. Ever
notice that just about EVER SINGLE famous philosopher and theologian has had an interest in geometry and numbers? It's crude and elementary... but
why not base the world on something so solid?
Anyways... I will part with the closing of the poem featured in this thread...
Because before I leave, I’ll leave you with this
What of those other things you worship took nails in their wrists?
Or how about when was the last time money or sex forgave you?
Whens the last time your boyfriend set you free from all you’re enslaved to?
What else is there that died so you could be made new?
Or when’s the last time the world promised satisfaction, and actually came through?

You will have to download it...
Also, this was made into a video that was posted on youtube. If someone could post the video on this thread for me, that would be awesome! For some
odd reason, I can't seem to get it to work...
