Idolatry is the most heinous injury and affront to the true Alahim; it is transferring his worship and honour to a rival. Idolatry brings physical ruin – Brokenness, pain, suffering, **death**, and judgment.Feb 24, 2016


These are the most common **forms of idolatry** in our modern western world. The gods of our culture include sex, money, power, physical appearance, family, romance, fame, leisure, celebrities, success, food, comfort, image, and the like. People, religious or otherwise, give themselves away to attain these things.Jul 17, 2017. Yahuah gives us instruction for idolatry in Scripture:-


THEREFORE PUT TO DEATH YOUR MEMBERS WHICH ARE ON THE EARTH: WHORING, UNCLEANNESS, PASSION, EVIL DESIRE, AND GREED OF GAIN, WHICH IS IDOLATRY. COLOSSIANS 3:5.


ALL THIS IS THE BEHAVIOUR YAHUSHA WANTS FROM HIS BRIDE. No more hiding things under our tents, or within the corridors of our heart that are idolatrous, these will only bring us to ruin and disgrace. Yahusha wants a clean bride, when we look at the behaviour out there in Facebook land are we seeing what Yahuah wants ?
