"... you turned to God from idols" 1 Thessalonians 1:9

"Idols are dead, God is living. Idols are false, God is true. Idols are many, God is one. Idols are visible and tangible, God is invisible and intangible, beyond the reach of sight and touch. Idols are creatures, the work of human hands, God is the creator of the universe and of aall humankind"
John Stott, The message of 1&2 Thessalonians
