How do 1 know what idolatry i day since things have changed so much since the writers ol the Bible?" A: Last week we looked at the definition of idolatry. It is defined as, "The paying of divine honors to any created thing; the ascription of divine power to natural agencies." The Old Testament was clear about how God viewed idolatry. In Exodus, the first two commandments referred to idolatry as being in direct contradiction to loving and serving God. This week we will look at what the New Testament says about idolatry and how we can apply this to today's understanding. In the New Testament the word for idolatry is "eidololatria. The word denotes a gross sin (a sin denoting anything that puts you in a place of being on equal status with or above God, Le., an independent spirit) and comes in the list of vices in the following Scriptures. Let's look at them. In I Corinthians 5:10.11 idolatry refers to the sexually immoral, the greedy, the slanderer, the drunkard, and the swindler. In I Corinthians 6:9 the list goes on to add the prostitute and the thief. In Gala- tians 5:20 the list expands to include: witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, envy, and orgies. Colossians 3:5 adds lust to the list. The list is made complete in Revelation 21:8 by adding; the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, those who practice magic arts, and liars. What does all of this mean? It seems so negative and destructive. Can anyone be rescued for this list of "don'ts11" Surely we have all found ourselves somewhere in this list of vices. How can we find our way out? Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:19-24 that we are to store up for ourselves treasures in heaven. We are to focus on that which will never die. The things of this world and the pleasures that accompany these things will one day pass away. No one can serve two gods. There will always be one that we love more. God wants our ultimate love and attention. There is no doubt that the world is continually at war with our affections. For us today, our idols can become ourselves, our time, our finances, our career, our spouses, our home, sex relationships, etc. When our allegiance is pledge to none other than God, we find ourselves being tempted and tried by the wooing of the world. You might compare the two tug of wars as the law of gravity fighting against the law of aerodynamics. It all depends upon who we surrender to in the fight. If we find ourselves putting another person, or thing above God. then we must repent. Repentance is turning around 180 degrees and walking in the opposite direction. The beauty about being a child of God is that forgiveness is always available to the one who sees their wrong and confesses it to God, It is the work of the Holy Spirit who will convince you of your own idolatry in your life. For the person who is not a Christian and is trapped in a life of idolatry, we can pray for them. It is a known fact that we, as humans, were created with the need to worship someone something. Everyone has a god in their life. Only the LORD God Almighty has the supreme ability to love and care for us and give us everlasting life full of peace, love and joy Who is first place in your life?
