“It’s your sins that have cut you off from God. Because of your sins, he has turned away and will not listen anymore.”
Some years ago I was leading a Holy Land tour. We also went to modern-day Turkey to visit the biblical Ephesus, where people once worshiped the goddess Diana. So I bought a little statue of this goddess at a local souvenir stand to illustrate one of my messages.
Afterward I threw the statue in my backpack and thought nothing more of it. But a little later in the tour, two of my granddaughters came across that little statue and started playing with it.
I said, “Girls, give that to me.” Then I left the room with it and threw it away.
