WFW - The wrong kind of altars


I got a chill when I saw this photo. It was taken about 3 weeks ago during a scouting trip by some of our team members. They had gone to visit the Lugot people of southern Sudan, and what they found was truly heart-breaking.

Our team came across several altars like this one, and smaller ones built right outside of witchdoctors' huts. When you see the state of the lives of these people, you witness first hand the devastation of life without God. They have set up for themselves high places and sacred stones on every high hill and under every spreading tree. They don't know the one true God and how much He loves them.

We are praying about how to go and tell them.


For the whole story, see The tragic reality of the Lugot of Sudan.

For more Word-filled Wednesday, head over to the 160-Acre Woods.

...in no way does my comment diminish the demons and gods you must come up against daily in your ministry. . .
but, When it's tangible like this photo depicts, the "gods" are easily identified and easily condemned.
I think of our American culture and see just as many false gods and fear for our judgment as a country. . .
The reality of Scriptures is that ANYTHING we worship apart for the Triune GOD is idolotry.
This WFW reminds me like a kick in the head!! What an appropriate Scripture you use.
WOW!
