“Comparative Religion” courses, or television programs, treat all religions the same, when they are not! Idolatry is based upon a physical “god” worshiped in a physical place: the Muslims Hajj around the Ka’aba in Mecca; Jews have their “wailing wall” in Jerusalem; Roman Catholics have Peter’s Basilica on Vatican Hill in Vatican City. Christianity, however, follows Jesus’ teaching Who answered the Samaritan woman, and said: “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father’” (John 4:20-21 NKJV). There is NO “holy city” for Christians, so how can that be “compared” to the other religions? “God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands” (Acts 17:24 NKJV).
