“He also broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had made, for until those days the sons of Israel burned incense to it; and it was called Nehushtan.” (2 Kings 18:4)
We love to worship, but we seem to struggle with worshipping in spirit and truth. When Moses made the bronze serpent in Numbers 21, it was for the purpose of saving lives… but it later was used as an idol. This should serve as a worthy reminder to us of why God hasn’t left us relics behind… we would quickly worship them instead of Him.
The shroud of Turin, supposed splinters from the cross, even the bones of martyred Christians have been warped into objects of worship by the misguided and the idolatrous. We worship an invisible God (see 1 Timothy 1:17) and we need not have any earthly representation of Him as substitute.
