New City Catechism #17

Q. What is idolatry?
A. Idolatry is trusting in created things rather than the Creator for our hope and happiness, significance and security.

Scripture Memory Verses - Romans 1:21, 25
For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened…. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator.
