VAT: Idol Worship

Idol worship is holding sacred a tangible object and interacting with it as though it is god, that which reigns supreme over all that will transpire over time.  The idol negates the sacredness of all else. Everything, however, is a manifestation of god. Holding an object sacred and another not negates the presence of god in everything. Likewise, taking something (other than that which are lives are dependent upon) very seriously is akin to idol worship.
