1 Corinthians 10:14 says, “Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.”
Idolatry can come in many forms. Some people have golden or silver idols that they actually bow down to and worship, however literal idolatry is not as common now as it once was. Idolatry today sometimes comes in the form of physical things. If we place more importance on physical things than on God, then we have made those physical things our idol. Money itself is at the top of that list. Few things have motivated man to do evil more than money. When we love money, it has become our idol. Sometimes people become our idols. When we are willing to compromise morality for someone, they have become our idol. If a person steers us away from God and truth, then they have become our idol.
One of the most difficult things about idolatry is being able to honestly recognize it in our own lives. We must be honest with ourselves and recognize idolatry if we are going to flee it.
