Even the Covenant People of Israel Strayed from God’s Law and Promise

Throughout Israel’s history, the covenant people strayed from God’s law and promise, building “high places” instead of worshiping as God had prescribed, at the temple with its sacrifices that pointed faith toward the coming Savior.  That is why we will always fall for golden calves, signs and wonders, awe-inspiring religious productions, and sanctification plans that promise measureable progress.
