It is a common for the creation to embody the creator. We see this in art, where the artist imprints their persona in a creative form, be it music, painting or sculpture. God the Creator of All made us his creation in his own image. But when the creation, in turn wants to play the creator, it has or makes no sense, especially if the creator starts to trust in their creation. This is the problem with man, the creation wanting to be the creator. Things and items we idolize become our creation, but the scripture warns us to not put our trust in anything else but God the Only Creator of all things (Psalm 115:8).
If you want to meet someone who is dumb (mouths that cannot speak), blind (eyes that cannot see), deaf (ears that cannot hear), with no sense of smell (nose that cannot smell), with useless hands (hands that handle not), and lame (feet that cannot walk), we don’t have to look to far. We just have to turn to idols and their makers who trust in them (sometimes ourselves).
Let us not trust in anyone, save Jesus Christ, the Creator of all things and by whom all things consist (Colossians 1:16-17). Man is the creation and should not attempt to play the Creator for in doing so is nonsense (no sense at all), especially if man ends up trusting in the idol senses, which is no sense at all.
Psalm 115:4-8 (KJV)
4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.
5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.
