“For we have spent enough of our past lifetime in doing the will of the Gentiles—when we walked in lewdness, lusts, drunkenness, revelries, drinking parties, and abominable idolatries.” – 1 Pet. 4:3

Idolatry, 8

“Their idols are silver and gold, the work of human hands. They have mouths, but do not speak; eyes, but do not see. They have ears, but do not hear; noses, but do not smell. They have hands, but do not feel; feet, but do not walk; and they do not make a sound in their throat. Those who make them become like them; so do all who trust in them.” – Psa. 115:4-8

You become like your idol.

The human heart is a perpetual idol factory (hominis ingenium perpetuam, ut ita loquar, esse idolorum fabricam).” – John Calvin [Institutes I.11.8]
