Dabney on Counterfeit Gods

We conceive formal idolatry, as that of the Hindu, a very foolish and flagrant thing; we palliate… spiritual idolatry of passions. God classes them together, in order to show us the enormity of the latter.

Robert L. Dabney, Systematic Theology (Carlisle, PA: Banner of Truth, 1985), 443.
