The second commandment means don't worship any other gods but him. Not just little statues but also Earthly things like TV or a game station. Not like laterally bowing and that stuff but playing too much of it or watching too much of it.

The Second Commandment:

Exodus 20:4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.

Idol refers to statues, "resemblance" or "form" applies to real or imagined pictorial representations. "Idol" also includes images carved from stone or wood and later those made from metal. None of these is to be made with the intention to worship it. This word was not meant to stifle artistic talent but only to avoid improper substitutes that, like the idols of Canaan, would steal hearts away from the true worship of God.
