“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” declares the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55: 8-9).
While man is created in the image of God, we must understand that God is not like man. His ways are not our ways. Idolatry is man’s attempt to portray God in images that inevitably are limiting, obscuring, confining, controlling, and projecting of our desires upon him. The escape from idolatry occurs when one stops living for the god you want and start pursuing the God who is.
