One True God
2 Chronicles 28:3 He offered sacrifices in the valley of Ben-Hinnom, even sacrificing his own sons in the fire. In this way, he followed the detestable practices of the pagan nations the LORD had driven from the land ahead of the Israelites. King Ahaz was a wicked leader. What he did was unthinkable. He took idol worship to a whole new level of evil by sacrificing his own sons in the fire. It's just like the devil to convince Ahaz to give his own children as sacrifices to demonic spirits. The truth is, that all idol worship is detestable to God. When we worship the created over the Creator, we are actually making ourselves to be god. However, It is God, who with an unmeasurable grace, gave His Son as a once and for all sacrifice for our sin. There are no gods to appease, the One True God has received us and forgiven us through the death of His own Son.
