    why are the people worshipping a wooden idol—a false god?a god, carved out from wood with human image, with ears but could not hear?with feet but could not walk; with eyes but could not see?why are Filipinos worsipping a graven image of god carved out from log, which shavings are thrown into the garbage, or used as firewooda god made by man misrepresenting the image of the true Living GOD who desires to be worship in spirit and in truththe Scriptures say GOD must be worship in the spirit and in truth. Jesus Christ is the Truth.true Christians do not walk by sight, but walks by faith
