Comment: In 928 BC, the united kingdom of Israel split into Israel and Judea. In 722, just a few decades after the death of King Solomon, they had already separated. And after 150 years, the kingdom of Israel ended and the ten tribes were scattered.
At that time, ten tribes of the Jewish people were lost, although from the point of view of history they did not disperse anywhere but simply changed their priorities and assimilated among other nations. Most people began to worship idols.
My Response: It depends what you mean by idols. Any material object that you attach special significance to is an idol. I can buy a silver candlestick for tens of thousands of dollars, put it in my room, and it will represent the Sabbath for me. This is how I create an idol for myself.
Question: If we do not feel the single force of nature or the Creator that stands behind all the objects of the corporeal world, then, in principle, we are considered idol worshipers. Are we all idol worshipers?
Answer: Yes. You can treat your clothes, your car, or anything else as an idol because you value them above your purpose.
The utmost value is unity, similarity to the upper force of nature. If you do not value this as the most important thing in life, then all other goals are idol worshiping.
