Moses came down from the mountain top, I saw people feasting.In a rage, he destroyed a new idol and punish the perpetrators of this crime.Since then the golden calf - an image that means the renunciation of the true God to accomplish a purpose in life.It is the accumulation of short-term earthly riches.
Why cells?The fact that the ox in ancient times was a symbol of power and strength.That is why Jews have decided that cells - is a deity, which has helped to bring them out of the land of Egypt.But the Lord said to Moses, that the worship of the idol of greed is not serving Him.The same view is held by the Apostle Paul.
