I is for Idolatry

Growing up Catholic is often confusing. Looking at the faith from a distance, it hardly makes sense. I noticed early on that Catholic churches were the sports entertainment version of religion. The pageantry, the rituals, the implied mysticism. None of those really bothered me, it was the complete and utter lack of passion put forth by the congregation. It seemed like everyone was going through the numbers, blandly droning the hymns and prayers.

It also seems to me that most Christians are actually breaking the first commandment. 1. Thou shall have no other gods before Me. Why does everything focus on Jesus? He was just a vessel of God's power. But all you hear about from Christians is "Jesus this" and "Jesus that". They can't see the forest for the trees.
