Graven Images

You shall not make idols.  Do not make graven images that you worship.  Don't make your own gods.  There is already a God of the universe.  We don't need to make another.  Too many people in the past worshiped statues of carved wood or stone.

Today people worship other things.  They often worship their own bodies.  They watch every morsel they eat, they worry over every chemical or vitamin they eat.  They go to the gym every day and never miss an opportunity to look in the mirror or take their own picture.

It is important to take care of ourselves.  But we should not worship our bodies.  We need to worship the Lord God.  We need to insure that in our desire to stay healthy we also keep spiritually healthy.  We need to keep our focus on God, not just on ourselves; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
