Top 30 Idol Quotes

Mostly, an idol is a real representation of a divinity that carries religious values, although it is also used to approach an individual or object of eternal love, adoration and absolute commitment. Hinduism is mainly about the idols associated with a moral message. The idol of Lord Shiva expresses massive power of humbleness. However, the term idol is often used to mention a role model or a famous personality.

Worshipping an idol has always been a debatable subject for years now. The argument is about the mightiness of god against the universe and no idol can exhibit the true existence of him. It is written in the bible that God has never agreed with the thought of worshipping an idol as it keeps us away from the reality of divine energy. Follow these popular idol quotes and sayings mentioned below for better understanding of this practice.
