    What is the importance of human incarnation over a statue in our worship?

    A statue cannot test your real essence in the sacrifice. When you offer food to a statue the sacrifice is only by words and by mind but when you sacrifice the food to the human incarnation the sacrifice is real because the human form of the Lord eats the food. Thus the reality of the worship comes out only when the Lord is in human form. Sakthuprastha was tested by the Lord in human form and not by the statue.

    I believe the importance is that to sacrifice to a statue is idol worship, which is forbidden and commanded against by the Father on High. To have salvation, we must certainly live by His Word, and not just part way but through and through. That means having faith in His works and the sacrifice of the Son for our sins, and belief in the Son's resurrection from the dead on the 3rd day. It means obeying the commandments and having works in our faith, and so idol worship in any form is something that should never be done. :)
