I'm thinking of how Nepal was shaken and rocked by a powerful earthquake sometime in April 2015. You could see the Buddha statue and a collapsed temple. According to CBS #News, at least 2,430 people had died in Nepal alone. Where was Buddha? Why wasn't he protecting the people? That's what a real god would have done. Evidently, Buddha could not hear, see, nor speak to the people. If Buddha was a real god, why did he have to be built by the hands of a man? The one and only God that I know made people. Buddha is not God. Buddha was a man that use to be alive and died like any ordinary man. If he was a god, he would have never died.
Why do people serve gods that cannot hear, see, and speak? According to the Bible (Deut.
5:1), God is a jealous God and does not want us to serve other gods. There are plenty of verses in the Bible that proves God is against those that worship other gods. The word of God is true and it is a known fact that his word is true. Take a look at what is happening today. Some people say that there is no god, but the word of God is alive and happening anyway. The things he said would happen is happening. Unbelievers see that things are happening that the word of God spoke of. However, they don't look at reality and block the truth out. They refuse to believe. People that are idol worshipers still disobey God.
The gods that cannot hear, see, nor speak will not answer your prayers. They won't do you any good. The gods of stone will let you down as they fall to the ground. Earthquakes can destroy them. They do not compare to the almighty powerful God that holds back the land from the sea, and his face cannot be seen. However, God's voice can be heard. He can hear, see, and speak. There are people that rather turn to a god that cannot hear, see, and speak. They do not hear God's voice. They serve a dead god, but the God above all is alive, and he never sleeps.
I sure am glad of that. It's sad how some people are spiritually dead and how they continue to idol worship.
Psalms 86:8 Among the gods there is none like unto thee, O Lord; neither are there any works like unto thy works.
