    Rings

    Rings

    Rings were first given to temple prostitutes.


    Strange gods or foreign gods were objects of praise.

    Genesis 35:2
    So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, “Get rid of the foreign gods you have with you, and purify yourselves and change your clothes.

    Genesis 35:4
    So they gave Jacob all the foreign gods they had and the rings in their ears, and Jacob buried them under the oak at Shechem.

    Psalm 78:58
    For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.
    1 Timothy 2:9
    In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;

    1 Peter 3:3
    Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel;

    I think graven images can be automobiles..... a diploma on your wall...your family..... your wardrobe.... or even the ring on your finger. Any of those things can be good. But, when they occupy a higher importance in our life than God, they have become an idol.
    Without Genesis, absolutely nothing makes sense in all of Scripture.

    Rings are like a gateway drug...given to Aaron to make even greater abominations...


    Make no image...worship none made...

    Be careful that you don’t defile yourselves by making an image...

    The prohibitions is clear...if “extreme”...

    Tattoos included...

    It’s not what goes in or on the temple that makes it unclean but that the temple thinks it ok to do so and choices to do so...reveals its inner prior defilement
