Review Questions

The Foolishness of Idolatry Athens was (in)famous for having thousands of idols. Paul saw those idols and noticed that one was even to the unknown god, presumably in case they had forgotten a god. To illustrate to your children how silly idolatry is, take a Mr. Potato Head (or other similar toy) and make it look as silly as you an (or let them do it). Then proclaim this silly-looking idol as the god of something. Discuss how this is how foolish idolatry is! Talk to them about how idols are made by people, then worshiped. Then talk about how God is not created, but that He created us.
