Animals may not be as smart as humans, but sometimes I think they learn better. In their own way, they know that staying away from danger is essential to their survival. When deer encounter a mountain lion, they don't usually hang around just to see what will happen. They remember dangerous situations, and they avoid them.
For some strange reason, humans don't. That's why the apostle Paul gives us a refresher course on our spiritual forefathers. When we look back on our history, we find that messing around with idolatry is a dangerous recipe. Plagues, serpents, and destruction should convince us to get out of here!
Join us this Lord's Day to get why you must never dabble with idolatry.
