There is no salvation through anyone else,

for there is no one else in this world who has been

named to men as our only means of being saved.

(Acts 4:12)




"Bel crouches, Nebo cowers.

They cannot rescue the load

but themselves go into captivity"

(Isaiah 46:1)


Bel and Nebo

were the chief deities of Babylon.


as Isaiah sardonically point out,

in time of trouble

the people of Babylon

had to rescue them

rather than the reverse,

as one would expect.



this is just as true

of the idols

you have

so confidently

installed in your life:

They are powerless

to save.
