SAVED FROM IDOLATRY
It has been proven often in history that whoever
entertains an unworthy conception of God is throwing his or
her being wide open to the sin of idolatry, which is in
essence, a defamation of the divine character. It is vitally
important that we think soundly about God. Since He is the
foundation of all our religious belief, it follows that if we
err in our ideas of God, we will go astray in everything else.
We would like to believe that there are no longer false gods
in the world, but actually we recognize some of them in our
own society. What about the glorified "Chairman of the Board"
of the modern businessman? Or the story-telling, back-slapping
god of some of the service clubs? Think of the dreamy-eyed god
of the unregenerate poet cozy, aesthetic and willing to
fellowship with anybody who thinks high thoughts and believes
in moral equality. We often encounter the tricky, unscrupulous
god of the superstitious; and the list goes on! Thankfully, we
have found that to know and follow Christ is to be saved from
all forms of idolatry!
Verse Thou shalt not bow down
thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a
jealous God. Exodus 20:5
Thought If we err in our ideas
of God, we will go astray in everything else.
Prayer Lord, help me to
remember that there is no replacement for you, and that you
are who you are no matter what anyone believes of
