Dialogue: Idolatry


What is an idol, and what is so wrong about idolatry? Faith traditions identify the dangers of idolatry - and what even counts as idolatry - very differently. Are images or statues poignant reflections of something else we worship, or are they too limiting to honor deities, or are they inevitably fake gods-in-the-making? Do we trade in God for idols of money, being liked, material goods? Why and how? Certainly not least, there lies the difference between Jesus as a prophet and Jesus as God Incarnate. It is a stark line indeed. Come learn and share about this tricky topic we all face.
