Made with Hands

Ac 7:48 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples MADE WITH HANDS; as saith the prophet,

Ps 26:10 In whose hands is mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.


The Bible seems to distinguish between the Hand of God and the Hand of the Enemy which would be Babylon. With that understanding, it should be safe to conclude that Temples made WITH HANDS would be a reference to the false gospels that surface in the church. Where as those made WITHOUT HANDS, in the context, would be without the Hands of men (Babylon).
