Searching for An Adequate Idol

As in the ages of the Reformation, people are indulging in the worship of relics - the gods of good luck and high superstition. Below you will see just some that I have been able to discover though a little research. Many of these have sold on E-BAY and other auction sites for tens of thousands of dollars, on high-security displays in casinos, and adorned with worshippers everyday. This is an interesting yet alarming commentary on the world and its quest to have "spirituality" but not knowledge of the One True God. In our post-modern time, people feel that it is quite all right to invent for themselves deities that they can worship, or even sell, even if they are found on a grilled cheese sandwich. And by the way, if you are looking for another image of Jesus - look for a Christian, for in them you will find the image of God reflected through the glory of Christ in them. The only image God is concerned about is the likeness of His Son seen in the lives of His children.
