[Friday reflections] Worshiping Jesus is Idolatry

Idolatry, one of the worst biblical sins:

We read in Exodus 20:4

;לֹֽ֣א תַֽעֲשֶׂ֨ה־לְךָ֥֣ פֶ֣֙סֶל֙ ׀ וְכָל־תְּמוּנָ֡֔ה אֲשֶׁ֤֣רבַּשָּׁמַ֣֙יִם֙ ׀ מִמַּ֡֔עַלוַֽאֲשֶׁ֥ר֩ בָּאָ֖֨רֶץ מִתַָּ֑֜חַתוַאֲשֶׁ֥֣ר בַּמַּ֖֣יִם ׀ מִתַּ֥֣חַתלָאָֽ֗רֶץ

Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any manner of likeness, of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth (JPS 1917)

And in Deuteronomy 17:3

;וַיֵּ֗לֶךְ וַֽיַּעֲבֹד֙ אֱלֹהִ֣יםאֲחֵרִ֔ים וַיִּשְׁתַּ֖חוּ לָהֶ֑םוְלַשֶּׁ֣מֶשׁ ׀ א֣וֹ לַיָּרֵ֗חַ א֛וֹלְכָל־צְבָ֥א הַשָּׁמַ֖יִםאֲשֶׁ֥ר לֹא־צִוִּֽיתִי׃

and hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, or the sun, or the moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have commanded not (JPS 1917)

I think Muslims and  Christians  can agree that worshiping anything other than God is idolatry.
It is idolatry because God is not a created being neither a physical entity anything man can think of.  God is not a man.

לֹ֣א אִ֥ישׁ אֵל֙ וִֽיכַזֵּ֔בוּבֶן־אָדָ֖ם וְיִתְנֶחָ֑םהַה֤וּא אָמַר֙ וְלֹ֣א יַעֲשֶׂ֔הוְדִבֶּ֖ר וְלֹ֥א יְקִימֶֽנָּה׃

God is not a man, that He should lie; Neither the son of man, that He should repent: When He hath said, will He not do it? Or when He hath spoken, will He not make it good? (Numbers 23:19 JPS 1917)
And we are also told that No human being can see God

וַיֹּ֕אמֶר לֹ֥א תוּכַ֖ללִרְאֹ֣ת אֶת־פָּנָ֑י כִּ֛ילֹֽא־יִרְאַ֥נִי הָאָדָ֖ם וָחָֽי׃

And He said: ‘Thou canst not see My face, for man shall not see Me and live. (Exodus 33:20 JPS 1917)
The concept that God Al Mighty would actually dwell on the Earth is imposible.

כִּ֚י הַֽאֻמְנָ֔ם יֵשֵׁ֥באֱלֹהִ֖ים עַל־הָאָ֑רֶץ הִ֠נֵּההַשָּׁמַ֜יִם וּשְׁמֵ֤י הַשָּׁמַ֙יִם֙לֹ֣א יְכַלְכְּל֔וּךָ אַ֕ףכִּֽי־הַבַּ֥יִת הַזֶּ֖ה אֲשֶׁ֥רבָּנִֽיתִי׃

But will God in very truth dwell on the earth? behold, heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain Thee; how much less this house that I have builded! (1 Kings 8:27 JPS 1917)
Please dear brethren, those who still believe that Jesus is God and continue to worship him, this is a violation  of the first commandment of God. An idolatry , a very serious violation in the sight of God, the worst of biblical sins:

Perfect God is infinite and immortal, He does not change, He is beyond anyone can comprehend and see and He knows everything.

It is not hard for you to believe.  It all makes total sense.

Please worship the one and only God who is the creator of Jesus and submit to Him.

    • I guess you are right brother, trinitarian must read the Bible for what it is. If they try to prove Jesus divinity they may find a few things that could look like Jesus divinity.

    I say;
    Rastafarians has found their own Trinity in the Bible with Emperor Haile Selaissie I the conqueror of the lion of the tribe of Judah, his imperial Majesty. Rastafari, everliving.

    There are other Trinity permutations as well with the believe God can incarnate into man.

    Indians have Sai Baba as God incarnate and there are so many God incarnates. If God can incarnate into a middle eastern Palestinian, why not Jamaican Rastafarians have God incarnate from Ethiopia as black man for them?

    Ken Temple will say his Bible say this or that or what. That is an insult to other human beings. How can you say your scripture or thinking of Trinity is better than others? Do not ever say that Mr. Ken.

    How can you say your scripture is better than Hindus who also believe Sai Baba is God incarnate? Do not insult the Hindus Mr. Ken for you all have the same believe-God can incarnate into man-yours is not special than theirs Mr. Ken.

    The Holy Quran says; Jesus and his Mother ate food and condemned all those who believe a man or a woman can be God. It is not speaking to Trinitarians here but to all who believe that God can incarnate into man.

    The Quran says; do not say 3, desist it is better for you. Here the Quran is addressing all Trinitarian permutations, combinations, compositions etc. but not Ken Temple or James White’s Trinitarians alone but Rastafarians and Mormons Trinitarians are included. Just do not say 3 persons are God.

    Thanks.
