Why Not Commit Idolatry (LD 34; Psalm 111) | 2012 Catechism Sermons

When we hear that the Lord does not want us to have any other gods this sounds rather strange. I mean if God is really god why should He be threatened by other gods? Besides what is the harm in trusting in things other than the Lord? If we are really honest, why would we trust in the Lord exclusively when there are so many other things that can provide for what we need? Why would we not want some sort of backup plan in case our God does not work out? Or are all these questions just foolishness? If you are curious about these questions please stay tuned to our sermon titled, “Why Not Commit Idolatry?”
