Wisdom Quote #19
In the United States we look at primitive civilizations with all of their idols and laugh at them… as if we are so high and mighty.
An idol is anything you put before the Almighty God. So do we still worship idols? In 2012 it may be a different name, but it’s the same spirit:
god of money (Plutus) = love of money
goddess of fame (Clymene) = celebrity worship
god of healing (Asclepius) = pharmaceutical drugs
goddess of lust/love (Eros) = pornography
Is the One True God not enough to supply your every need? I would argue that Americans worship more idols and false gods than the Egyptians, Greeks, or Romans ever did
