“Men have set up their idols and then sought to dignify and sanctify their inventions by worshipping them in the name of Christ. Romanism and Ritualism give us one form of it. Wordliness and fleshly indulgencies another. Just as Aaron proclaimed the honors paid to the calf and the carnal merriment that followed as “a feast unto the Lord,” so many a “church supper,” bazaar, religious carnival, whist drive, etc., is officially carried out under the name of Christianity.

What a mockery it all is! Aaron had no Scripture to justify his proclamation, nor have the present-day leaders any word from God to warrant their doings. “And they rose up early on the morrow, and offered burnt offerings and brought peace offerings” (Exodus 32.6).

Terrible travesty was this. Those offerings which spoke of the devotedness of Christ unto the Father, and the fellowship which He has made possible between a holy God and His people, were now presented to this fetish of their own corrupt imaginations. It is significant to mark the absence of any sin offering! But that had no place in their thoughts. How could it? When there is departure from God, the conscience becomes calloused: “The way of the wicked is as darkness, they know not at what they stumble” (Proverbs 4:19).

That is why the unscriptural and Christ-dishonoring performances in the churches occasion no uneasiness to those engaged in them.” —A. W. Pink (1886–1952)

Taken from “Gleanings in Exodus” by A. W. Pink (1886–1952)
