Catholics are into idols...The whole religion is based on Idols. Along with many others, like Russian orthodox. They have a look of religion, but no Godly power, and neither are the Muslims a Spiritual entity. Jesus is the only object and that by faith.Does Jesus qualify as an idol?
In reading the various definitions of idol, I think Christians have turned Jesus into the type of idol that he railed against.
We all idol worship in some sense. If you can think analogically you will agree. Here is a poet that might help you do that. He has a good message but he himself ends in being an idol worshiper.
Commandment #3 “You shall have no other gods before[a] me.”
Christians put Jesus before Yahweh.
Commandment #4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above,
Christian churches are full of carved images.
Gnostic Christians also have an ideal, but we do not let ourselves be subsumed by our own creations and remain perpetual seekers of the best god/rules and laws to live by, as Jesus taught.
I see Christians and Muslims as idol worshipers.
Is Jesus a Christian and Muslim idol and are they idol worshipers as most theologians say?
