False gods patiently endure the existence of other false gods.
Dagon can stand with Bel, and Bel with Ashtaroth;
how should stone, and wood, and silver,
be moved to indignation;
but because God is the only living and true God,
Dagon must fall before His ark;
Bel must be broken,
and Ashtaroth must be consumed with fire.
Charles Spurgeon from A Jealous God, Sermon 502, March 29, 1863
