Ma. What is Idolatry?

Sch. To reverence with Godly worship any creatures, or to put our trust or comfort in them as Gods;  which to do, were most abominable.  For we ought to give all Godly honour only to his Majesty, the greatest love to his goodness;  to fly to him, and to crave his help in all fears and dangers:  and with thankfulness to acknowledge that we owe ourselves, and all things that we have, unto his goodness.
