God or Money

"The idols of the nations are made of silver and gold. They were made by human hands. They have mouths, but they cannot speak. They have eyes, but they cannot see. They have ears, but they cannot hear. They cannot breathe. Those who make idols end up like them. So does everyone who trusts them." (Psalm 135:15-18)
Expecting such idols to speak, see, hear or breathe surely qualifies as the pinnacle of irrationality, dare we say insanity. There are those who trust such idols; then there are those who (how crazy is this?!) trust those who make the idols.
May Dagon fall down before the ark and Gideon tear down the Baal so that we might fear, love and trust in the true and living God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, one God blessed forever.

Greetings Paul

Amen to your post except sadly for the last clause.

Ought we not to clearly & scripturally point seekers to the true & living GOD? Who is He?

(John 17:1) These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, Father, ...
(John 17:3) And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

Jesus identifies solely the Father as the only true GOD..
Paul concurs:
(1 Cor 8:4) ... that there is none other God but one.
(1 Cor 8:6) But to us there is but one God, the Father, ...

Let's look at 1 Thess 1.9-10 in full ...
(1 Th 1:9-10) For they themselves show of us what manner of entering in we had unto you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve the living and true God; 10 And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

So, there is solely ONE TRUE GOD, the FATHER. He has a Son.

Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of the ONE GOD, the Son of the Father. [2 John 3];
the only way to the ONE GOD, the Father. [John 14.6]
Eternal life is knowing them Both

Paul, for more info,
I recommend this video:
The Human Jesus

Take a couple of hours to watch it; and prayerfully it will aid you in your quest for truth.

Yours In Messiah

Sorry, I don't have time to revisit the battle against Arius, whose spirit, is see, is still alive and well. Have mercy, O Lord, on those dazzled by destroying heresies and enlighten them with Holy Wisdom.
