The more society moved towards worshipping these idols, the quicker its values deteriorated as the quickening power of the holy spirit’s working process on the mind weakened. Better said, the act itself may not take an inordinate amount of time but it could have longer lasting effects which draw our minds away to things that do not glorify God.
