The Essence of Idolatry

"[I]n the case of God, we distort our knowledge of Him by replacing Him with an image that we create ourselves.  This is the essence of idolatry: replacing the reality with a counterfeit.  We distort the truth of God and reshape our understanding of Him according to our own preferences, leaving us with a God who is anything but holy."

~ R.C. Sproul, The Holiness of God
