The Laws of God – 2 – Do Not Worship Idols

Another sin for which we must be forgiven, and for which Jesus Christ gave himself for us is the sin of idol worship. God has forbidden that any picture or statue of a man, animal, or any other form conceived in the imagination be used of him in worship. Making idols, worshiping idols, or bowing to idols is sinful. Jesus even taught that this law can be spiritually broken by anything in our life that is more important to us than God. If we love money, possessions, sexual pleasure, comfort, food, friends, or family more than God – we are idolaters. All men have idols in their heart and need forgiveness … The main bible verses are Titus 2:14 and Exodus 20:4-6.
