Beloved,Praise The Divine Creator of all living beings and things! For truly The Deity of Heaven and Earth is worthy of all worship. Let us be mindful not to worship worthless idols that are unable to give life or anything in life.
Blessings in Abba God,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
Then, over the passage of time, this blasphemous practice becomes standard and is observed as law, and carved statues are worshipped by royal command. When people live so far away that they aren’t able to pay homage to the ruler in person, they make a portrait of that faraway face and create a public image of the one they seek to honor, in their zeal to flatter the absent ruler as if their sovereign were present. As the intensity of their devotion grows, those who mindlessly pay homage to a distant ruler are invited to continue the practice by opportunistic artisans. Out of ambition, perhaps to win favor with the tyrant, the artist skillfully crafts the image into an ideal form, and the masses of people, enthralled by the beauty of the statue, begin to worship as a god one whom they had previously honored as human.
