The Lord has something to say about false idols, it’s the first two of his ten commandments.
“I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. 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, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.”
It’s that important to him, and you only have to read the Bible to know what happens to those who have done this serious sin.
Idols of the heart are bad and here’s what I’m talking about. An idol is a person or thing that is blindly or excessively adored according to the American Heritage Dictionary. God regards these (things) we hold so adoringly as idols of the heart. If you play video games and nothing else is in your head, or if you’re always texting on your cell phone or face booking or gambling, drinking, doing drugs or anything that you want more then your Lord, then each is an idol of the heart!
This form of idol worship I want to warn you about and pray you are right with, or get right with the Lord as to how he sees and is judging you. Praying and talking to the Lord as I have will reveal how he sees it in his eyes. Repenting and confessing your sinning is the way back for you if you’re sinning in the Lords eyes.
We all want to be right with the Lord at all times and we all know how he feels about false idols. Stay close to the Lord and pray to him always and he will lead you home to Him.
All glory to the Lord
His humble servant Lee Buchanan
