Today is Wednesday. Wednesday was so named to honor Woden, the chief Anglo-Saxon/Teutonic god. Woden is the leader of the Wild Hunt. Woden is from wod "violently insane" + -en "headship". He is identified with the Norse Odin.
The Greek and Roman people named it after their other gods, Mercury and Hermes. If anybody who has studied all those pagan gods thinks that this info is wrong, please tell me.
Mercury is the Roman god of commerce, travel, thievery, eloquence and science. He is the messenger of the other gods.
Hermes is the Greek god of commerce, invention, cunning, and theft. He is the messenger and herald of the other gods. He serves as patron of travelers and rogues, and as the conductor of the dead to Hades.
Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before, me.
Psa 115:4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men's hands.
Psa 115:5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
Psa 115:6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
Psa 115:7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
Psa 115:8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.
Psa 115:9 O Israel, trust thou in the LORD: he is their help and their shield.
These are the verses I think of in connection to false gods or idols. I always wonder how people can trust those gods to watch over them when those gods were made. My God was never made, He was always there, ans He is the only One that I am able to trust in.I don't know why I just wrote about gods, but it was the first thing that came to mind. I am going to bed now, tomorrow I get to try out a wii.
