What about the makers of idols?

Isaiah Bible Background

10.11.2017 – Old Testament: Isa 45.16

To read the Bible in a year, read Isaiah 45–47 on October 11, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

The Bible frequently shows the futility of idols and the associated religions, but it also addresses the makers of idols,

They shall be ashamed
And also disgraced, all of them;
They shall go in confusion together,
Who are makers of idols.
(Isaiah 45.16) 

The makers of idols are just humans, who themselves were created by the God of heaven. So then what is idolatry? Creatures making creators. That does not make sense. No wonder then that the makers of idols shall run into disgrace and have confusion.


  • Have you ever followed an idol?
  • Do we have idols in modern life?
