That's why this thread is in the Theology forum and not the Philosophy forum.

That is the lesson of the good Samaritan.

No the lesson is that hardly anyone helps the truly needy.

They just walk, drive, right on by.

I don't understand how this is selfish. The idea of God taking precedence in your heart.

He doesn't need your help.

“You shall not make for yourself a graven image” was the second of the commandments given at Sinai, following on from “I am the Lord your God… You shall have no other gods before me”.
In fact they are the same injunction, expressed in different ways; “You shall be faithful to the One true God” and “You shall avoid all his competitors”.

This goes back to the most fundamental premise of Biblical teaching, viz. the profound difference between the Creator God and the created world.
The distinction between God and the not-God is basic to the Bible (which makes it incompatible with any kind of monism).
Cleaving to God and cleaving from the not-God is the essential running theme of the Bible, and the first epistle of John brings it under close examination.
