Idolatry is defined in two ways; 1) worship of idols and 2) blind or excessive devotion to something (thefreedictionary.com). It is also defined by http://www. merriam-webster.com as 1) the worship of a physical object as a god and 2) immoderate attachment or devotion to something.

lapu-lapu idolBased on these definitions, various forms of idolatry are noted today. They are being categorized into classical, spiritual,  or religious, political, hero worshiping, sexual  and economic.

However, contrary to Pope Francis’ proposition on idolatry concerning money, the same is set aside in this book for utter lack of logical basis to categorize it under economic idolatry.

The book will first tackle on the different categories by presenting samples of idolatry and finally touch on possible remedies that may be done given the circumstances. Articles in this book will be published in due time.
