Do hobbies are idolatry?

An activity that aims at fun is idolatry, therefore the hobbies, which aim at fun, are necessarily idolatry, otherwise they would not be hobbies but duties. The same activity that, instead, is felt as a duty and therefore is not a hobby, is not idolatry, because if it is felt as a duty, we don't condemn ourselves when we approve it, that is our conscience is clean (Romans 14:22-23).
The activity of varying the diet in order to feel physically well can be felt as a duty, because we might think about the negative consequences it would have if we did not vary it; and if it is felt as a duty, then it is not idolatry. If, on the other hand, the same activity has as its purpose that of tasting food to satisfy some fantasy, then it is concupiscence and idolatry of the food. That's the key to understanding if something is right or wrong.

"Convinced of your perfect clarity
Outside looking in on me
Distorted still will be the view
Of he looking likewise at you"

Only in Christ can we truly see
The heart and soul of anybody
As his spirit between us testifies
Dispelling hate and expelling lies

The truth of his love forever reigns
With sanctified hearts we are changed
New eyes to see and ears to hear
Filled with his love that never fears

Justice comes to each and all
Who respond with zeal to his call
That which man could never right
He freely gave by his own might

His life given for your sins
So everyone of us could win
To know the love of God eternal
He gave up his throne and became carnal

Innocent and pure a perfect life lived
Once risen then lifted, his spirit was given
To 11 brave apostles he gave a commission
To go out and save souls as the fishers of men

To the world they preached his gospel of grace
They were warned they'd be persecuted for its sake
Heal the sick, cloth the poor, feed the hungry and thirsty
Because of those humble beginnings today Billions are free

If you don't believe that Jesus is Lord
I ask if that's a position you think you can afford
Each breath you take he freely gave you
Everything you've ever needed he's been faithfull and true

True love is waiting with arms open wide
He makes beauty from every tear that you've cried
Heals every hurt and completes every soul
Forgetting all sin and making you whole

From the inside out we are changed
Chaos flees and order arranged
New life, new hope, new spirit he brings
To his glorious name every angel sings

No more guessing or distortion
Come close to Christ and receive your portion
Stop trying to figure out what to do
Eternal life is waiting for you


What of YOU makes your value more...
Do you wear the label of the world
Or have you found your life in Christ

What of your wisdom...
Is it wasted on fools or can it penetrate
Does it add to the stock of the wise

What of your knowledge...
Is it built up on foundations of truth
Or ever changing and blown by the wind

What of your understanding...
Can you open eyes with its teachings
Is it flexible to be in darkness as light

What of your heart...
Has it faith in the father for salvation
Or in man and accidental destination

What of your love...
Has it turned the lost to repentance and life
In obedience has it shown up no matter the strife

What of your wealth...
Does your worth increase by the dollar
Or are you rich no matter the situation

What of your life...
Is it a collection of trophies in a glass case
Or a victory over death and risen to Christ

Renew and destroy
And he said, my son if you can understand what I have just said, then you are like an eagle who is able to remember all his father taught him.
