Idols Live in the Heart

I was reading the wise words of Mr. William Wilberforce last night so I thought I would post some of his words:

All who have read the Scriptures must confess that idolatry is the crime against which God's highest resentment is expressed, and his severest punishment denounced.  But let us not deceive ourselves.  It is not in bowing the knee to idols that idolatry consists, so much as in the internal homage of the heart; as in feeling towards them, any of that supreme love, or reverence, or gratitude, which God reserves to himself as his own exclusive prorogative.

Grace upon grace,
JRL
