“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. 4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” Colossians 3:1-4
SIMPLY PUT, WHETHER PHYSICAL OR IMAGINED (IMAGED, CONJURED UP IN ONE’S MIND) AN IDOL IS THE FIGMENT, THE GOD-LESS OBJECT OF ONE’S SINFUL, CORRUPTED, DEFILED, UNREPENTANT, AND DEMENTED HEART AND THEREFORE IMAGINATION.
“And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.” John 3:19-21
Man made idols are merely figments of the imagination or physical wooden, stone, plaster of paris, etc. These are inanimate elements created by the ONE you should be worshiping “in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:23-24). How can your “god” help you if you have to create him yourself, prop him up, pump up your psyche, and carry him around? What kind of “god” is that? –A false god!
