Idols are simply pictures or statues of imaginary gods. Actually, most people who have idols don’t worship the idols but the gods they represent. Some people, however, think that an idol itself can help them.
People want to believe in things that they can see and touch, so they make things they can see. But we cannot see God because God is spirit. As Christians, we do not make or worship idols because idols take our attention away from worshiping the one true God.
