Was it to me you were bringing sacrifices and offerings during the forty years in the wilderness, Israel? No, you served your pagan gods—Sakkuth your king god and Kaiwan your star god—the images you made for yourselves.
Amos 5:25-26 NLT
We must be very careful not to be deceiving ourselves with our religiosity; believing that we are serving and worshiping God when we actually do this for “our idols”.
