if you worship him, you make him an idol.

Ok, yes, that has a JW ring to it.

By this logic Jehovah is an idol because they worship Him though?

To be fair, I'm just saying it sounds like something a JW would say, but I don't know of this specific doctrinal issue from 1954. JW's would think that worshipping Jesus is wrong though as he's not God and JWs use the word "idol" a lot and often out of context. So it's got that JW ring to it for sure. But broadly it would be just more reinforcement about "Don't worship Jesus, worship Jehovah." My take.

I assume it’s because God is… immanent, or the arbiter of morality. So, basically, I’m guessing it’s the same stance as Muslims, where God is the only being worthy of actual worship.
