2 Kings 17:41, How did they fear the Lord & worship idols?

Question: 2kings 17:41 how is it that they fear the Lord yet continue to worship carved images? I would think if you fear the Lord you worship the Lord. Answer: The people were trying to do both. God requires all of our worship, and that is what fearing The Lord really is. The people thought that practicing sacrificed and feasts was enough to fear the Lord, they did that along with their worship of other gods. -PJ
