“Thou shalt  not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them nor serve them.”
– Ex 20:4,5

“Our Creator demands our supreme devotion, our first allegiance.  Anything which tends to abate our love for God, or to interefere with the service due Him, becomes thereby an idol.  With some their lands, their houses, their merchandise, are the idols.  Business enterprises are prosecuted with zeal and energy, while the service of God is made a secondary consideration.  Family worship is neglected, secret prayer is forgotten.  Many claim to deal justly with their fellowmen, and seem to feel that in doing so they discharge their whole duty.  But it is not enough to keep the last six commandments of the Decalogue.  We are to love the Lord our God with all the heart.  Nothing short of obedience to every precept. . . . can satisfy the claims of the divine law.”
– ST Jan 26, 1882
