Quick Answers: What is Idolatry?

Q. What is idolatry?

A. Idolatry is nothing more than worship of idols. It is or can be extreme adoration, glorification, love, or great respect for something or someone; in our case, a biblical perspective, anything that replaces the one and only true God, Elohim. It is also, God in the flesh, Jesus Christ.


Leviticus 26:1 Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the Lord your God.

1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the Lord, he hath also rejected thee from being king.

2 Kings 17:12 For they served idols, whereof the Lord had said unto them, Ye shall not do this thing.

1 Chronicles 16:26 For all the gods of the people are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.

Psalm 96:5 For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the Lord made the heavens.

Psalm 115:4 Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands.

1 Corinthians 10:14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.

Colossians 3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

    1. Need Not Worry My Brother, That’s a easy one as well with the help of the Holy One! According to John 7:24, Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with Righteousness. Righteous Man/Woman are to judge sin, but not to be judgemental. Do you remember these scripture verses: Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. (Matt 7:1-5) What are we to do as Christians first? Remove the plank out our own eye. So what is the second part as Christians? To Remove the speck from your brother’s eye. The whole time we are judging with the same measure to ourselves first, this is what God is saying. I will never or anyone else have this authority but God to condemn. As the Scriptures states above, now Christian you can see clearly to help someone to come out from the dark to the light (Jesus Christ}. I do hear you opinion of view, and I hope you are understanding where I’m coming from. “Judging Others” you will need to learn discernment. Only the Holy Spirit can help you with this one. Just ask for His help! Keep in mind that judging doesn’t means to condemn or to be unmerciful, to be unreasonably harsh. None of these should not be in any true follower of Jesus Christ. When you get sometime please read Matthew 18:15-18; 1 Corinthians 5:1-13; Galatians 6:1-2; James 5:19; Leviticus 19:17; 2 Thessalonians 3:14; Colossians 3:16; 1 Thessalonians 5:14. All of these scriptures talks about us Christians judging our brothers or sisters in some form or another. Judging is Ok! Being Judgmental is something totally different. I’m glad we talked about this, maybe this will help someone…who know, but God, right! Thanks for your comment Michael, and Remember to PRAISE THE LORD!
