Heidelberg Catechism Q & A 94.
God spoke all these words, saying: I am Jehovah thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
94. Q. What does God require in the first commandment?
A. That, as much as I love my soul’s salvation, I avoid and flee all idolatry, sorcery, soothsaying, superstition, invocation of saints or other creatures; and that I rightly acknowledge the only true God, trust in him alone, submit to him with all humility and patience, expect all good from him only, and love, fear, and honour him with my whole heart; so that I leave and forsake all creatures rather than do even the least thing against his will.
Contrary to popular secularist belief, faith is not & never has been superstitious…Supernatural & natural/Creator & created, yes, superstitious, no. Whether it is a horses shoe, a rabbit’s foot or a human’s brain, they all find themselves in the realm of the created & should not be worshipped or adored above God (touch wood:)
From the time of Noah & the dispersion at Babel as nations were created & developed the knowledge of God was being undermined by delusions of grand proportion & misdirection. Such is humanity's ability to fabricate untruth for the sake of self. Enter equivocation & don’t walk under that ladder! So the world is broken & it wasn’t because of a shattered mirror or a bit of bad luck & some tea leaves in the bottom of a cup isn’t going to tell you much without an interpretation…God does not require that we switch off our brain, it is after all a gift from him along with our hearts.
