Hosea 13:2Wrench

BACK NEXT
And now you keep adding sin to sin, making for yourselves molten images [of dead presidents and kings and pagan gods] from your silver.
Idols personify your [empty beliefs and philosophies].
[Idols are] entirely the work of craftsmen & artisans, [social engineers] who say that all humans must hook up with the [golden] calf [Social welfare system in order to buy or sell].

Note: Judeo-Christians are quick to judge idol-worshipers, and slow to admit that their own pockets lie filled with counterfeit 'money' covered with idolatrous symbols, the very mark of the beast, by which they live.


Hooking up, [kissing,] is fundamental in idolatry.
Adorare = kissing. This is why Disney, a pagan company, fills its shows with kissing and witchcraft.
