Are Catholics guilty of idolatry?

sir, as ive mentioned in my meet n greet i am fond of watching bible debates, in one scenario they asks if the catholics are really following the bible or gods word, there was a verse (im sorry i couldnt remember) that god got angry of the israelites for molding statues made from gold and silver, hence in our time we are doing the same thing, advise please.
