Idolatry—Belief In The Power Of Man

962.1Question: What is idolatry from your point of view?

Answer: Each person should determine that for himself.

Question: And how do you define it for yourself?

Answer: I believe that idolatry is the belief in the power of man. If a person relies only on himself and believes that there is no other force controlling the world, by this he raises himself to some kind of pedestal and considers himself infallible. This is clear idolatry.
