I agrre, Nathan
I agree with you Nathan. The bible is, for many, a way get closer to the essence of God. But far too many diefy it, I fear, instead of deifying its subject. I've known many people who quote the bible or wear a larger than necessary cross in order to wear religion on their sleeves. And that is the type of idol worship that many, especially Moses, warned about. Granted in Moses' day, it was a calf, today it could be a bag of cash, a trophy wife,or 1000 shares of GM stock, or a crucifix or blood weeping statues, or even the bible itself. We must be careful of what we worship.
