The Word of God
Here's a test. It is only a test. Had this been your medical board exam, you would have been subjected to an exhausting, day-long rigorous assessment. But it's not. So relax. This is only a single question, anyway. When you read the title, did it bring to mind: a) a book, b) directions from God to an individual, or c) a person? To those who are tempted to think that Catholics worship (and therefore idolize) statues, I'd like to propose this thought experiment: if a Catholic were to ask you about the Word of God, and if he were surprised that it brought to your mind the Scriptures instead of the Person of Jesus Christ, how would you defend yourself against the charge of idolatry toward the Scriptures?
