Making An Idol
are "idolatry" and "making an idol"?
is taking spiritual qualities and attributing them to physical objects. For
example, thinking that a person has more giving power in his right hand and

man's flesh is called "making an idol'; you take a still object and inject

prefer to be small. It's against the proper development and we shouldn't think
