False Gods

Today’s sermon is about false gods. We think too little about false gods nowadays, but they were once considered so deplorable that they led off the Ten Commandments. I am the Lord Thy God. Thou Shalt Not Have False Gods Before Me. But what does it mean to us today? What does it mean to us as a society, or to each of us as an individual?

If you look at the words of the bible, you realize that this commandment means the same exact thing today that it meant back in the time of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. False gods can take many shapes. They come in the form of false prophets walking among us. We hear their voices in the lyrics of heavy metal music, or disguised in the form of the so-called rock ballads. We worship these false prophets, placing them in a position alongside or even above our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Today we talk about a false god that we know only too well – The Satin Strangler.

As we read in Exodus in the Old Testament, Moses dealt with false gods as soon as he returned from the mountain with the Ten Commandments.

When Moses approached the camp and saw the calf and the dancing, his anger burned and he threw the tablets out of his hands, breaking them to pieces at the foot of the mountain. And he took the calf the people had made and burned it in the fire; then he ground it to powder, scattered it on the water and made the Israelites drink it.
– Exodus 32
Despite his efforts, and despite the efforts of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and his followers, false gods walk everywhere among us. They are the stars that we deify on our movie and television screens, our music stages, our sports fields and our political arenas.

The false god that we see every day when we wake up and turn on our television or boot up our computer or download our news feeds is the Satin Strangler. We are her followers – the straying flock. She is leading us away from the kingdom of heaven – down the easy and slippery path to hell.

The Satin Strangler is the ultimate false god – preaching to us in her cloak of good. She is everywhere. EVERYWHERE. Yesterday – in a local card shop – right in the front window – staring at me – representing the false god of the 21st century – was a row of Satin Strangler bobble-head dolls. Dolls in the visage of a murderer. Every doll carried satin stockings – ready to kill. KILL. Children were tapping the heads of the dolls and pressing their hands against each other’s necks, laughing.

How should one react when we see dolls glorifying murderer? How should we react as a community under God? I tell you right now that we should not act as we are – standing silent as evil takes over.

What would our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ do if He walked the streets of Main Street, USA, and saw the news stands filled with this week’s magazine covers? What would He do if he saw children pretending to strangle each other in front of dolls worshipping the image of a murderer? He would tell us we have had enough murder. He would tell us not to accept this modern day icon of Satan. He would tell the world not to accept the Satin Strangler as our false god.

Follow the example of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and say “no” to the Satin Strangler and her legion of false god worshippers. Follow the example of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to the gates of His kingdom in heaven, my friends.
