WALKING IN THE SPIRIT PART V
Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: idolatry. Galatians 5:20
Idolatry in the 21st century looks very different from ancient times but it is still the same sin. Today we have teen idols, movie stars, fast cars, pretty women, and men, not to mention the idols of silver and gold!
The worship of idols is whatever you love more than God! You can bow down to a graven image or you can worship any number of things shown nonstop on TV and the Internet! For example, pornography is an idol, your education can also be an idol, as well as anything that has your heart!
God's first commandment to us states that we shall have no other gods before Him! To disobey this command is to send a generational curse upon your children all the way down to the third and fourth generation. Millions have received a curse from the sin of idolatry and because of their disobedience, millions of their children have been cursed with sickness, poverty, and death!
"You shall have no other gods before Me. You shall not make for yourself a carved image, any likeness of anything that is in Heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me." Exodus 20:3-5
