Thou shalt not worship idols, is the second commandment in Christian teaching. Do we have idols today? In my work, a small person in seven-mile heels is often the symbol of present-day worldly man. This time the person is in front of the church on which Luther nailed his list. Luther who was once persecuted as an idol worship with his Protestantism, but according to others brought renewal in the faith. What are our "idols" now? The materialistic issues such as telephones, designer clothing? The social media? Who seem to determine our manners as a kind of new command on "like"? It is spectator’s choice.
