Yaacov Dovid Shulman Presents Rav Kook on Idolatry

Aug 13th, 2009 by admin in Spiritual Growth
If something has a touch of idolatry, we may know that, although it may have a quality of physical or even spiritual beauty, this comes only from its superficial aspect. But within it lies the venom of a profound destructiveness.

If a person is bonded with a link to such a worthless faith, the site of his linkage lies within the innermost being of its content–the very thing that pours forth inner evil. This is because all idolatry is repulsed from the source of life and goodness, the source of living waters, and instead hews broken cisterns that will not hold water.
