Do It Yourself Idolatry

"Remember your commandments.

First: no other gods.

Second: no making other gods to worship.

The profound wisdom of that second commandment is that anything in the world can be hammered into an idol, and therefore can be a false god, if misplaced at the top spot of our affections It's DIY idolatry: choose from our handy assortment of gods, mix and match, create your own....

...Anything at all can become an idol once it becomes a substitute for God in our lives."
