Idol Worship

There is a story of a Chinese fisherman who for three successive mornings, drew in his nets empty. His scant supply of food consisted of only two small fishes. The smaller of these, he cooked and ate; but the larger, he prepared with much more care, using his last fuel to do so. Then placing the carefully browned fish on his best dish, he carried it to the temple, and prostrating himself before the idols, he laid his offering before the God of Plenty. He believed, by so doing, this god would enable him to secure the necessaries of life.

Who but those who believe in this idol worship, will not see the uselessness of such offerings to graven images? Yet let us pause for a moment and see if it is possible to find idol worshipers among our own Christian people.
