Small children given toys to play with are often seen enacting adult behavior. A little girl with a doll may dream of it becoming a real baby while boys with capes may believe they can fly. The dreams build up to stifle their sense of reality and then suddenly they outgrow the need for them. The idols and icons of religion have much the same effect on the adult brain. People believe they are images of real people and they worship and pray to them in the hope of gaining something in return.
Parades whereby statues of so-called saints are carried around on shoulders bearing the weight are part of many cultures. They are usually decked out with flowers and even jewellery to enhance their appearance. As they pass observers bow down to them in worship and acknowledge within their hearts that this is an image of their adored.
The comparison between the small child with a toy and the adult with idols is juxtaposed over how the bible explains the folly.
"They that make a graven image are all of them vanity ... they see not, nor know ... who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing." Isaiah 44:9
'Vanity' is defined as excessive pride in one's own appearance that is best summarised by the term 'conceit'. By shaping statues and idols into images perceived by the human mind the bible says it is conceit. God is Spirit and has no image and the likenesses of so-called saints, etc. created by men are errors.
"He falleth down unto it and worshipeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me for thou are my god. They have not known nor understood: for he hath shut their eyes, that they can not see; and their hearts that they can not understand." Isaiah 44:17,18
My reincarnation opposes all religious views because there is no heaven or hell and, therefore, no devil, angels or saints. There is only life in a body and everyone who ever lived is either back now in a body, thus the massive overpopulation of the earth, or has recently been back. Judgment is underway and those who worship idols and have false gods are the ones who are suffering the consequences.
"I am God and beside me there is none else, there is no god beside me ... I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I God do all these things. Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness;" Isaiah 45:5 -8.
"The heavens will be rolled together as a scroll." (Isaiah 34:4).
That implies it is a book that is no longer current. The facts are that the things dreamed of by adults about their dolls and other toys are nothing but vanity. Those who have ears to hear will see through them. Those who are spiritual have nothing to do with them for they are sin. That is the judgment and those who are against the reality are to go forever. Only the spiritual will inherit the earth.
