«Ambition is an idol, on whose wings great minds are carried only to extreme; to be sublimely great or to be nothing.»
«He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog's neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine's blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.»
«As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.»
«Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar? / What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing? / But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.»
«For if any man see thee which hast knowledge sit at meat in the idol's temple, shall not the conscience of him which is weak be emboldened to eat those things which are offered to idols; / And through thy knowledge shall the weak brother perish, for whom Christ died? / But when ye sin so against the brethren, and wound their weak conscience, ye sin against Christ.»
«A-wastin' Christian kisses on an 'eathen idol's foot.»
