Gold and Silver Sovereignty

“Hear the Word which Jehovah speaks to you, O house of Israel. So says Jehovah, Do not learn the way of the nations; and do not be terrified at the signs of the heavens; for the nations were terrified at them. For the ordinances of the people are vanity. For one cuts a tree out of the forest with the axe, the work of the hands of the craftsman. They adorn it with silver and with gold; they make them strong with nails and hammers, so that it will not wobble. They are like a rounded post, and they cannot speak; carrying they must be carried, because they cannot walk. Do not be afraid of them, for they cannot do evil nor good; it is not with them” (Jeremiah 10:1-5; emphasis mine–CD).

Here’s poetry regarding the gold-and-silver-sovereignty that many Calvinists adorn their idol with:

The Calvinist craftsman acquires a freshly cut tree.
Carves a fallen image and says, “It looks like me!”
With humblefeet he takes steps one, two, and three.
Points at secret sparkles: “A permissive decree.”

Here’s prose regarding those Calvinists who vainly attempt to deflect from the seditious sparkles they reflect:
