People Wanted Something Other Than the Lord

What the Lord said through Hosea in the following passage to Israel does not sound different from what Christians do, who turn their backs on the Lord,
“I found Israel
Like grapes in the wilderness;
I saw your fathers
As the firstfruits on the fig tree in its first season.
But they went to Baal Peor,
And separated themselves to that shame;
They became an abomination like the thing they loved.”
(Hosea 9:10)
The Lord found Israel, but they wanted Baal Peor instead, and so became abominable like Baal Peor, a false and dead god.
Do we want the Lord Jesus Christ or something else?
