The second commandment, "You shall not make an idol," is violated not only by making idols, but also by breaking the first commandment as we see in the case of Jeroboam, who made idols and worshiped them when he violated the first commandment.

1 Kings 12:25~33
...After seeking advice, the king made two golden calves. ... "It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem. Here are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt."
...He instituted a festival on the fifteenth day of the eighth month, like the festival held in Judah, and offered sacrifices on the altar. ...On the fifteenth day of the eighth month, a month of his own choosing, he offered sacrifices on the altar he had built at Bethel. So he instituted the festival for the Israelites and went up to the altar to make offerings.

Thus, idolatry is not only the making of any image that is to be an object of worship, but also the making of other laws against God's true ones; God has appointed the Sabbath, so keeping Sunday as the Sabbath is making an idol of the Sabbath.

Let's keep Sabbath, God's true commandment like Jesus and His apostles. We are God's true people who keep God's Word.

    God commanded us to keep the Passover and 7 feasts in 3 times. However many christians celebrate Christmas rather God’s command. It is also an idol of theory. We can not be saved by breaking God’s commandments even we claim to have faith in God. We should have knowledge in the bible so that we keep truth and receive blessings from God.

    The 2nd commandment is closely connected with the 1st commandment.
    when we violate the 1st commandment, then, we come to worship other gods.
    Look around you, carefully! Those who worship the false gods use idols. And, they also do not keep God's commandments, but their own rules.
    We can distinguish the true believers and the false by their deeds of belief.
    Anyone who despise God's commands is standing against God and will fail to be saved.

    Through this post, I have come to realize about idolatry.
    Idolatry is that man-made rules or images not God-made.
    Sometimes we cannot distinguish between man-made and God-made.
    Because man-made rules are very similar to God-made rules.
    For example, Sunday worship is only one day different from Sabbath which is Saturday worship.
    However, the result is totally different. Sunday worship leads us to destruction while Sabbath leads us to salvation.

    The Bible tells us that if we are God's people, we must keep the commandments that God has established. Let's become children who keep God's commandments such as the Sabbath and the Passover, not idols like Sunday and Christmas.
