Idolatry: What Is Included?

  Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or 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. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.   Exodus 20:3-6 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils. Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.                              1 Corinthians 10:20-21 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever, Amen. Romans 1:25 For all the gods of the people are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.       1 Chronicles 16:26 And I will destroy your high places, and cut down your images, and cast your carcases upon the carcases of your idols, and my soul shall abhor you.                                                                 Leviticus 26:30 And ye have seen their abominations, and their idols. wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them:)  Deuteronomy 29:17 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry.                 Colossians 3:5 image The definition of an idol according to the Miriam Webster dictionary is: 1)a representation or symbol of an object of worship; broadly: a false god 2a) a likeness of something b) obsolete: pretender, imposter 3) a form or appearance visible but without substance< an enchanted phantom, a lifeless idol 4) an object of extreme devotion< a movie idol>; also ideal  5) a false conception: fallacy Basically an idol is ANYTHING you pray to, or devote yourself to that is not God- Yahweh. This includes all false gods including praying to saints and mother Mary( because she is not God/Jesus) and things like money, t.v., video games, etc. If it isn't God the Father, the Son, or the Holy Ghost that you worship and pray to and devote your time and energy to and put your trust in, then it's an idol. If you are asking anyone other than God for forgiveness that is also idolatry. Why doth this man speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?   Mark 2:7  (When we look at this verse we already know that Jesus is God come to earth in the flesh to save us) If you are saying prayers that are repetitive such as 10 hail Mary's, or 95 allahu akbar's  you fall under the next scripture. But when ye pray, use not vain repetition, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.        Matthew 6:7 If you call your preacher, teacher, priest, etc.  Father or Rabbi see the next verse. But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. And call no man your father upon earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven. Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.    Matthew 23:8-10 As in Exodus 20:3-6 above you do not bow to an image of Christ or anyone else or worship it. You are not to even make a statue of anything that is in heaven, including Jesus/God. Some might say that God is called by many names, and that is true. I will list them for you, and I hope you're ready for some reading. What I want you to notice is not one of them is Buddha, allah, shiva, thor, Ishtar, libertas, etc. are not among them. Some even say allah is just Arabic for God. No it is not!!! It is Arabic for god as in a generic sense and that capital G makes a big difference. Click here for research that shows us allah is the pagan moon god from before Islam even arrived on the scene. This is why Islam's symbol contains what it does.

Notice these do not include any pagan gods such as isis- pagan goddess of magic, thor- pagan god of thunder, allah, -pagan moon god, marduk- pagan sun god, zues- pagan king of gods, Poseidon- pagan god of sea, libertas- pagan god of liberty/freedom( in which the statue of liberty is modeled after in the biggest display of idol worship in the country; look for separate post soon), or any other pagan/false god. If it isn't Yahweh/ Yeshua(God/Jesus) it is an idol. If you honor it in any way, it is idolatry. The Lord is jealous God and will not tolerate idolatry. If you are involved in making anything other than God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost(Holy Trinity,God head- one God) a priority over God or you speak or pray to, hold reverence for, or worship anything other than Him you are involved in idolatry. You cannot serve two masters. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Thank you to minister Barbara Cagle and all the saints on facebook for helping me complete the list.
