So then why do we continue their pagan practices
customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of
the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the
axe.† They deck it with silver and with gold; they
fasten it with nails and with hammers, that it move
Cutting down a tree and bringing it into your house is a vain custom anyway you slice it.
Whether itís in a shape of an idol or just as a decorated tree, it doesnít matter.†
Itís a pagan form of worship.
God clearly tells us to not learn or practice these things.
