The King of Glory, Jesus Christ, does not dwell in inanimate objects.
Isaiah 44:20 … Is there not a lie in my right hand?
The palm tree, lovely, regal, tall,
The sculpture, most beloved by all,
The chamber, made of finest gold,
Their beauty do our eyes behold.
Majestic though they seem to be,
They cannot hear, nor can they see.
Inanimate, things not alive,
Is not where Jesus Christ abides.
Although these teachings do abound.
The Serpent, as in days of old,
Deceives the many, scores untold.
God’s Spirit dwells in man alone,
Not in an object made of stone,
Not in the lifeless things of earth,
But by His Spirit, the new birth.

4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.
5 They have mouths, but they speak not: eyes have they, but they see not:
6 They have ears, but they hear not: noses have they, but they smell not:
7 They have hands, but they handle not: feet have they, but they walk not: neither speak they through their throat.
8 They that make them are like unto them; so is every one that trusteth in them.
