Do not humiliate yourself in front of man's hands made images!

Second Commandment.

You shall not make idols. You shall not bow down to them or worship them (Exodus 20:4-6; Deuteronomy 5:8-10).
Any of those who bow down in front of crafted, with man's hands made images have little understanding of God's revelation. Any of physical image or picture, or anything else, has not neither life nor power in it. All who bow down in front of any image are sadly mistaken and have attained little understanding who God really is and what He requires. They have gone from the truth themselves, and lead away from the truth those who would enter into relationship with God. We do not know how God looks like, and if we make with our hands imaginary figures and than bow down to them, than that is an abomination to God.

"No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is Himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made Him known." (John 1:18).
We must worship God in spirit and truth (John 4:24) and bow our knees only in front of Him in our spirit.

God has given serious warnings not to make any idol. He warns us not to bow down to worthless idols. We must be very careful not to engage in worshiping created things.
"But be very careful! You did not see the LORD's form on the day He spoke to you from the heart of the fire at Mount Sinai. So do not corrupt yourselves by making an idol in any form--whether of a man or a woman, or like any animal on earth or any bird that flies in the air, or like any creature that moves along the ground or any fish in the waters below. And when you look up to the sky and see the sun, the moon and the stars--all the heavenly array--do not be enticed into bowing down to them and worshiping things the LORD your God has apportioned to all the nations under heaven." (Deuteronomy 4:15-19).
"So be very careful to love the LORD your God." (Joshua 23:11).

Apart from physical, created images, icons and pictures the "pride" and "ego" is the common human failure and sometimes even painful fall. Humans worship themselves by trusting in themselves and by craving after created things rather than Holy, living God. We must examine ourselves and worship only living God.
"So put to death the sinful, earthly things lurking within you. Have nothing to do with sexual immorality, impurity, lust, and evil desires. Don't be greedy, for a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world. Because of these sins, the anger of God is coming." (Colossians 3:5-6).

"Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry." (1 Corinthians 10:14)

"Dear children, keep yourselves from idols." (1 John 5:21).

"Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth."

(Colossians 3:1-2). NASB.
