That’s news to me. All I have to do is look at responses on this site. Either someone misunderstands what is said or wants to twist what is said. The “Trinity” for example which has been brought up here and not by me. For most, it’s Christians making “partners” to God. This is so far from the truth. Christians simply read the Bible and have to come to terms with what is said in the Scriptures. When it says that Jesus forgives sins, what am I to think? When it says that Jesus is the Word and then says that the Word created all things, what am I to think. Somehow God is revealing Himself to mankind in a very personal way. Since God cannot be contained in anything, why would someone believe that He has to do what a human requires. Idols were a very real problem in the OT. But Idols were “other” gods, not “partners” with God.Of course you can
Israel wanted a different leader, someone they could control and deal with. Christianity has never made idols, unless you want to talk about Mary in Catholicism. Stating Mary was the mother of God. Which is not true. God never had a mother. I can hear all the expressions now! But Jesus was human! Yes, but He also does only things which God can do. Enough of this, I got on a little diatribe. The point is, the text of the Bible is clear, yet so many don’t believe what it says and misinterprets what is said.
