Wicked 1. Evil in principle or practice; deviating from the divine law; addicted to vice; sinful; immoral.

1846 Webster’s Dictionary Definition as follows: QUOTE
IDOL'ATRY, n. [L. idololatria. Gr. idol, and to worship or serve.]
1. The worship of idols, images, or any thing made by hands, or which is not God.

2. Excessive attachment or veneration for any thing, or that which borders on adoration.” (End of QUOTE! )
Focal summary for contemplation for mindfulness is as follows”
