Discussion for Isaiah 2:9

  • Mike Olive on Isaiah 2:9
    why would you not forgive someone that bows down and humbles himself... and if one says that it means bowing down to the idol... then how can one humble himself to the idol... that 's not being humble if your bowing down to an idol... being humble is always a good thing there is no bad type of being humble...???
