So when you see churches worshipping relics and statues, like the Catholic churches do so much, praying to dead people and clinging to relics for good luck and other nonsense, you know one thing for sure: you must not embrace their ways, for only Satan will answer their prayers, so that they believe it’s God, and thus end up in hell.
From the ten commandments:
“You shall have no other gods before me.
“You shall not make for yourself a carved image or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the LORD your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,
but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.
