A story is told of a British scientist who had a famous chameleon named “Billy the Lizard.” Before he left for a vacation he asked his butler to take special care of him while he was away. When he returned home, he went to Billy’s cage but did not see him. He went to his butler and demanded an explanation.
“Sir,” said his butler, “it was this way. Some of the villagers wanted to see Billy. So we put him on a piece of red cloth and he turned red. Then we put him on a green cloth and he turned green. Then we put him on a piece of striped cloth and he exploded. What can I say?”
“Hear, O my people,” God said to the Israelites, “I will warn you…You shall have no foreign gods before me!” It is almost impossible to believe that after all God had done for Israel He had to warn them about worshiping idols.
Is it any different today? Not really. The problems we face in the world today are not political problems but spiritual problems. We worship too many “foreign” false gods.
