But, there has been lots and lots of temple
activity going on for about two weeks now. For the past week, each night from my study window I have seen
about five different firework shows from various temples. One was only one street in front of my apartment.
The fireworks were awesome; the reason behind them heartbreaking. Banquets, burning paper money, fireworks, and lots of worship . . . it is heartbreaking.
"Their land is filled with idols;
they bow down to the work of their hands,
to what their own fingers have made" (Isaiah 2:8).
"I am the Lord; that is my name;
my glory I give to no other,
nor my praise to carved idols" (Isaiah 42:8).
