American Idols not carved but nonetheless worshipped.

The Lord is well pleased for His righteousness’ sake; He will exalt the law and make it honorable. Isaiah 42:21.

Law, torah; Strong’s #8451. Definition: Instruction, teaching, direction, Law, precept. Usually torah refers to the Law of Moses, or a portion of the Law. Sometimes in Israel’s history Torah refers to the rules or instructions of a human parent, or of some wise person (Proverbs 1:8; 3:1; 13:14). Torah comes from the root word yarah, meaning “to shoot, to cast down in a straight manner, to direct, to rain down.”

The idea is that God’s instructions to Israel (the Torah) were given to them in a straightforward, direct manner. For Israel, the new covenant, by the power of the Spirit of God, will cause the Torah to be written in their hearts (Jeremiah 31:33, 34; Ezekiel 36:25, 26.)

    I wish we (America) hadn’t pulled the law (10 commandments) from our court house walls. It is why we cannot be blessed.

      I agree. If you get a chance look up a photo of the top front of the Supreme Court. Moses with the Ten Commandments. I guess they don’t look up much, their loss!

    I think that’s the only courtroom where you will find them still. And I believe they have been left there only because of tradition. Very sad.

      Its like a great city that once was the center of much activity, now it sits in a grave yard that no one visits or gives a second thought to.
