Believing in vs. serving an intermediary
It mentions in part 2 of The Divine Code vol. 1 that under the lenient view, believing in an intermediary as having a partnership with G-d is permitted for gentiles, although it's certainly false and unpious and should be rejected, but serving an intermediary would be an act of idol worship. If anyone makes any kind of prayer to an intermediary alone and by addressing it's name, and they are not praying or bowing or performing any kind of rituals to an actual statue or other physical icon that symbolizes the intermediary, would this be considered *serving* an intermediary? Similarly, if one states that an intermediary is their lord, or they give thanks or praise to it and only mention the intermediary's name without even mentioning the claim that it's an intermediary, is this considered just believing, or is it serving?
