Dear Readers,

How is it that people ever worshipped idols? Were humans so backward that they believed that wood or stone, or constellations like the sun or stars have Divine powers?

The Ten Commandments forbid us from having idols. “You shall have no other gods (elohim) before Me.” Exodus 20:3. Through its wording, the Torah seems to acknowledge the existence of “other powers/gods,”...

What are some of the idols we worship today? Power, success, money, social status, politics, enough “Likes” on social media—there are so many things that we trust have authority over our life.
— Idol Worship Today, Impossible? Think again!
Handy Household Hacks
Removing Marks on Wood

Remove marks on wood furniture using a walnut. Cut it in half and rub it into the scratch. After you rub the nut across the furniture, rub the area with your fingers. This will help the oils from the nut soak into the surface of the wood. Buff it up with a cloth, and you’re set!
