The idols of the nations are silver and gold, made by the hands of men. They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but they cannot see; they have ears, but cannot hear, nor is there breath in their mouths. Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them. Psalm 135:14-18
The book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, tells of golden statues made by man to worship. There have been human beings that have stated that they were god, and to this day, millions go to their graves, where they lie, to pay homage to them.
I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you will be clean; I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. Ezekiel 36:25-27

There is only one God and He is Jesus Christ. He died and was placed in a grave but did not stay there.
He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Matthew 28:6
Do not be fooled by those who call themselves god. Why would you worship a statue made of stone, bronze, gold, etc.? Why would you pay homage to a grave filled with the bones of a human calling himself god?
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:1-2
