Even Secular People are Religious

The idols of the nations are silver and gold,
the work of human hands.
They have mouths, but do not speak;
they have eyes, but do not see;
they have ears, but do not hear,
nor is there any breath in their mouths.
Those who make them become like them,
so do all who trust in them. (Psalm 135:15-18)

Whatever we ultimately trust is our idol. Secular people are religious, even though they do not admit it. They worship their god or gods, which are the idols they trust in.

The consequences of the God or "god" we choose shows in our lives because of this spiritual principle: we become like the god we trust and worship.

The reason idolaters are spiritually blind, deaf, dumb, and dead is that this is what their idols are like. Only those who trust in the only true God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, see Christ's glory, hear his voice, live in fellowship with the Father and Son, and can speak to others of the the grace and peace that is offered to all who repent and believe.
