Exodus 20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
I was once having coffee with a Christian friend and he made the statement, "I really don't think people still have other gods or worship idols."
This statement sort of through me for a loop. I wondered how out of touch he was with the real world. Anything people worship is a false God. I have seen crowds of people pour out their overflowing adoration to celebrities and famous people and even politicians. They have lifted them up and made Gods of them.
Superstitions, such as Astrology, have elevated even the stars to having power to control people's lives. When we give those attributes to anything we are elevating them to the position of an Idol.
There is only one true God. He is the God of the Bible, the Creator of the Universe, The Sustainer of all things. He is the only One worthy of our worship and our trust.
