Can lust be sometimes considered idolatry?

Are there any examples as such? :bible1:

Unless you actually worship them then no, it can’t be literal idolatry. But if by idolatry you mean an inordinate attachment that gets between you and God, then most definitely.

Now excuse me, I have to offer a pinch of incense to a girl I went to school with :stuck_out_tongue:

Idolatry if it means you don’t put God first.
