A sign that you are worshipping something is that you turn to that when you are in trouble; like primitive turn to their various gods for help and protection.
But in our modern world, there is just as much worship of this kind. We have just exchanged the "Buddha statues" with the government, our pension, our bank accounts and so on.
There is nothing wrong in getting help from the government, having a pension or a big bank account. The question is "where do you have your security?".
