Exposing Idols

Many people think of an idol as a physical statue or graven image.  Such physical objects are idols and worshipping them is forbiden in the Bible but idols include much more than just physical objects.  Idols include idols of the heart.  Here are some key biblical passages:

  • Romans 1:25 (an idol is anything for which we exchange the truth of God for a lie, that we worship and serve rather than the Creator)
  • Colossians 3:5 (idolatry is the sin behind every other sin)
  • Ezekiel 14:3-7 (idolatry originates in the heart)
  • 1 Cor. 10:14; 1 John 5:21 (Christians must deal with idolatry in their own lives)
