Definition of an idol: “An image or other material object representing a deity to which religious worship is addressed. An image of a deity other than God. Any person or thing devotedly or excessively admired.”
Definition of Idolatry: “Obsession with anything to the degree that it took the place of devotion to God. Manís pride causes him to trust in himself rather than in God, hence his idols are really expressions of self-worship.” Isaiah 2: 8-22
