Love the Lord, your God, and follow his commandments. God commands everyone to not pay tribute to any man made idol. Every day I see someone posting on Facebook a carved image or statue of Jesus or Mary. God’s commandment is very plain about this. “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.”. We are not to be in the mix of those that have carved images or statues of idols of any kind. It also says, “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”. If people love God they will give up their wicked idolatry ways.
At judgment all idolaters will be counted unworthy before God. Paul said, “be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters”….”shall inherit the kingdom of God.” If you are among these people that practice idolatry, repent of your wicked ways. Don’t delay for no one knows when Jesus returns and our time of death. Turn away from your false beliefs, leave the religion that teaches that idolatry is good, and come to Christ. Let Jesus wash away your sins and sanctify your body. His mercy is for everyone that loves Him. Do the will of God and follow in His ways. Seek the Lord’s righteousness and you will be saved. Thank You Lord for teaching me how to live for You. Thank You for leading me away from my wicked ways. I no longer wish to sin against You. My heart is Yours.
Exodus 20:3-6 (KJV)
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
5 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;
6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
1 Corinthians 6:7-11 (KJV)
7 Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another. Why do ye not rather take wrong? why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?
8 Nay, ye do wrong, and defraud, and that your brethren.
9 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,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
