Idolatory VS Image

Post  Fatima on Wed 11 Jul 2007, 5:57 am

There are differences between Idolatory and setting an image in one's mind. Study of the following verses will explain the differences:







IDOLATRY
IMAGE

Authorized by:
Man (Ex. 32:1)
God (Ex. 25:9-22; Col. 1:15; Heb. 12:2)

The Goal:
Worship the idol (Ex. 32:8)
Never worship the image; use the image as stepping stone into divine flow (Rev. 4:1)

The Action:
The idol remains dead (Is. 44:19)
Divine flow is prompted (Rev. 4:2)

The Prayer:
Pray to the idol (Is. 44:17)
Never pray to the image; as divine flow is activated, communication with God is established (Rev. 4 - 22)

The Purpose:
To worship the thing (Is. 44:15)
To focus one’s heart before God (II Cor. 3:18; 4:18)

The Attitude of the Heart:
Stiff-necked; proud (Ex. 32:9)
Seeking God humbly (Prov. 2:1-5)

The Control Issue:
Manipulating God; magic
(I Kings 22:20-23)

Watching God in action; Christianity (Rev. 4 - 22)
