  2. The term “ICON” signifies idolatry so just maybe we’re worshiping worship, worshiping music, worshiping musicians…… instead of worshiping God!

    Either Aaron Munsamy doesn’t know this or else he’s unwittingly showing his colours.

    A quick look at Wikipedia:
    An icon (from Greek εἰκών eikōn “image”) is a religious work of art, most commonly a painting, from Eastern Christianity and in certain Eastern Catholic churches. More broadly the term is used in a wide number of contexts for an image, picture, or representation; it is a sign or likeness that stands for an object by signifying or representing it either concretely or by analogy, as in semiotics; by extension, icon is also used, particularly in modern culture, in the general sense of symbol — i.e. a name, face, picture, edifice or even a person readily recognized as having some well-known significance or embodying certain qualities: one thing, an image or depiction, that represents something else of greater significance through literal or figurative meaning, usually associated with religious, cultural, political, or economic standing.
