while i generally aggree with the sense of that, i would also point out, that monotheism, from whence comes such a concept as "sin", also makes an object of its god, which it then worships as one.
now i'm not saying there's anything wrong with being hugged by and hugging back something you can feel and experience without having to pretend to know anything about it. i just see love, good, worship as such, not above question.
i love my little invisible friends, who may be spirit creatures of some sort, too, and i really don't see anything wrong or conflicting about doing so.
i'm not claiming to be a standard of judgement on what i can't possibly know any more then anyone else can either. this is just how it makes sense to me to feel.
