2 Nephi 12:20-21 -- On Idols and Bat Chow

"In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which he hath made for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats;
To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for the fear of the Lord shall come upon them and the majesty of his glory shall smite them, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth."
2 Nephi 12:20-21

This chapter is talking about the last days, and some of the things that will happen, and that it will be obvious to people who God is, and idols won't be valued. And you have to wonder, if people are tossing idols made of silver and gold aside rather than melting them down, how the financial situation is. :) ... I know that the last days are scary, but there seems to be something cool about tossing really valuable things aside because we're ashamed that God won't like it. ...that everyone will be there, thinking like that. And wherever we are today, maybe we should look around at our stuff and evaluate... what things do we have right now that we would toss to the bats if the Lord was on his way over? :) Maybe if we clean house now, we can buy some purina bat chow to store instead, which would be a lot better to throw to the bats in the last days... for the bats, and for us, because if we get over our idol thing now, maybe we can learn some cooler things then, right?
