  • I don't think so. Unless you worship the statue or the other god.

  • Most religions have something written about the worship of idols. If that's what you mean, then yes.

  • Its a fine line actually. Some people could see it as your worshiping a false God. SO....maybe ask your preacher about it.

  • I think you are probably safe. It's not like you are worshipping the statue. I have a statue of Bastet only because I like Egypt and cats. I don't worship the thing it's part of my decor.

  • I guess I don't see WHY you'd want that, no matter how it looks, in your house if you were a hardcore God-fearing person, but to each their own I guess.
