Does Jesus qualify as an idol?

Does Jesus qualify as an idol?

 

In reading the various definitions of idol, I think Christians have turned Jesus into the type of idol that he railed against.

 

We all idol worship in some sense. If you can think analogically you will agree. Here is a poet that might help you do that. He has a good message but he himself ends in being an idol worshiper.

 Commandment #3 “You shall have no other gods before[a] me.”

 

Christians put Jesus before Yahweh.

 

Commandment #4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above,

 

Christian churches are full of carved images.

 

Gnostic Christians also have an ideal, but we do not let ourselves be subsumed by our own creations and remain perpetual seekers of the best god/rules and laws to live by, as Jesus taught.

 

I see Christians and Muslims as idol worshipers.

 

Is Jesus a Christian and Muslim idol and are they idol worshipers as most theologians say?

If a Christian who gives honor and praise, and glorify Jesus and the symbol of  Cross, and he partakes in Communion, and yet does not believe that Jesus and God are One and the Same -  that God is Jesus as  human -  then, Jesus becomes an idol.

  It also makes the Bible non-credible, makes Jesus contradict Himself, and thus He becomes just another false prophet.

That's why it is so important to believe that Jesus is God.

It is all about putting Jesus above Yahweh. Ok.

That breaks the first commandment as Jesus did not even exist when god purportedly gave them to Moses.

If Yahweh is not the one being praise, it is a breach of the first commandment. Right?
