SORT BY Relevancy
Why do Christians settle for mixture in the church and life? What are Christians afraid of?
Temptations: Christians were tempted to engage in various vices that were a part of their lives before they became Christians (idolatry, sexual immorality, covetousness, etc.).
Persecutions: Christians were persecuted by the governing powers of the day for their allegiance to Christ. Many Christians were threatened with certain death if they would not deny Christ.
Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen... For the customs of the people are vain:” (Jer. 10:2,3). “Take heed to thyself that thou be not snared by following them [the heathen]... and that thou enquire not after their gods, saying, How did these nations serve their gods? even so will I do likewise. Thou shalt not do so unto the LORD thy God:” (Deut. 12:30,31)
Injected into the Church:
You have supposed it is part of the true Christian religion to observe Lent, "Holy Week," "Good Friday," to buy hot cross buns at the bakery, to have colored eggs, to dress up and go to Church Easter Sunday, perhaps to attend an Easter sunrise service! Really what dose Easter hunt and Jesus have in common you have to find them...? I never realize that My Lord was lost..
Because of the "sheep" instinct in humans, most of us believe a lot of things that are not true. Most of us do a lot of things that are wrong, supposing these things be right, or even sacred!
Spiritual adultery was not only a problem in the Old Testament; it is an ongoing problem in the New Testament as well. In the Old Testament the children of Israel habitually transgressed against God's laws by taking up the ways of the heathen nations around them and by borrowing their abominable customs.
Today on RTR, we are going to be talking about a form of idolatry that no one will ever admit to, because they probably have no clue that they are doing it. Call 661.449.9951 to listen live. Join us this and every Sunday at 10am est
in The Bible
It was the sin of idolatry that repeatedly caused God's people, the israelites, to live in bondage and out of fellowship with God, the consequences associated with the sin of idolatry. When we create an idol and look to something or someone other than God, we literally give that thing power over us that that it ordinarily would not have. We literally make it a god. This is why God is so vehement opposed to the sin of idolatry. His own hands are tied as long as we look to idols as our souirce of help. Think about that for just one minute. We actually render the God of heaven and earth "helpless" when we refuse his Diety. Join us at 4 pm for 15 minutes of Word Wisdom every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday as we discuss "The Danger of Idolatry".

Our Guest Jason thickpenny had some technical difficulties and so we were unable to interview him but in this episode I was able to share the meaning of idolatry in light of Christian holidays. I hope you will get to enjoy some of what i shared. I am sharing some key texts and points from my sermon on the same theme.
Acts 17:22-33 - Paul Uses a pagan statue to share the gospel
Pagan deities, along with the sun and the moon, have provided the basis for the naming of the days of the week: Sunday (Sun day), Monday (Moon day), Tuesday (Tiw's day), Wednesday (Woden's day), Thursday (Thor's day), Friday (Frig's day), and Saturday (Saturn's day)
We do not refrain from using the word "flower," even though Flora was the goddess of flowers. nor the word "ocean," even though Oceanus, son of Uranus, was the god of the sea. Other Things With Pagan Origins - Dinner Napkins, Toilets, Neckties, Suits, Church Steeples, wind chimes, pacifiers
Rom 14:13-14 - “Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way. I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean
1 Cor 8:4 “So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that "An idol is nothing at all in the world" and that "There is no God but one."
The Message is being delivered by Tom Freiss of Inquisition Update at First Amendment Radio on Micheal Adam's TalkShoe Call on October 16,2014: Click here to view his whole broadcast. What does sodomy have in common with idolatry? You will never hear this from any pulpit. Why? They are teaching "Spiritual Formation" which takes us away from the Scriptures.
Exo 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Exo 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Exo 20:6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
I really think this message needs to go viral. Please help it along, share it!!
Keep a smile on your face and love in your heart, there is no lie in love.
in The Bible
Today, most Believers don't very often think aboutn the sin of idolatry. Yet, it was the one sin in the Bible that troubled God's people the most. Since everything that happened to them is an example for our benefit, perhaps we need to re-examine idolatry; what it is and what it does when we worship something or someone other than God, and when we value things more than we value our Creator. Join the discussion 4 pm today online at http://blogtalkradio.com/wordwisdom, or by phone at 661.554.9174.
A conversation on the culture of idolatry and its counter-reaction, iconoclasm, in the context of human institutions, spiritual organizations, psychic activities and a discussion on the Aquarian shift
John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
We know that in today's world, some people will come right out and tell you that they worship the devil.We also have some people worshipping the devil, or doing things that pretain to devil worship, with absolutely no knowledge of what it is that they are doing; Idolatrous ceremonies and rites have even found there way into the christian church and modern society. We aslo have those that have knowledge of these things, and speak against them, but are still guilty of idolatry(devil worship).We're going to examine the Bible to show how these thing are being played out and what effects they have on the people of today's society. We would like for you to examine the scriptures with us, so you can judge for yourself and repent, that is, if you to are guilty of idolatry?
