Naaman wanted every thing to suit him

God showed him what and how he needed to do

2nd Chronicles 26:16But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

He did what God told him not to do

In the rage of pride he built a evil god

He demanded that all worship it
