Eve was the first one to worship an idol. She worshipped at the altar of her own ego. She coveted the wisdom and power of God. The New Testament tells us that covetousness is idolatry.
Colossians 3:5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
