There are some Protestants who worship the Bible. Many Roman Catholics worship the pope and the dogmatic doctrines created by past popes – men, not God. When Moses came down from the mountain and discovered the people were worshiping a human-created golden calf, he reminded the people about the idolatry of such a practice.
I was raised in a Protestant faith which has transformed itself from one involved in 17th-century puritanical witch hunts in New England to a denomination which recognizes the love of God and the original blessings given to us all as a gift from God. This religion does not advocate a hateful god which encourages worship of the Bible, proof-texting, self-righteous human judgments, and the importance of doctrines of men which negate the love of God, our Creator. Today, the Puritans are right-wing Protestants, Mormons, Roman Catholics, Jews, and Muslims. They prioritize hate before love.
