According to the Old Testament book of Jeremiah 10:14-15, it states:
vs.14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breathe in them.
vs.15 They are vanity, and the work of errors; in the time of their visitation they shall perish". He clearly stated here not to indulge in any forms of idolatry for it is an abomination to God.
Even in the New Testament, Apostle Paul prohibited us from eating those food being offered unto idols.In I Corinthians 8 : 4-6, he says,
vs.4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one.
vs.5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth,(as there be gods many, and lords many,)
vs.6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
In Romans 1:21-25, Apostle Paul boldly spoke against idolatry:
vs.21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but become vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
vs.22 Professing themselves to be wise, they become fools,
vs.23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
vs.24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
vs.25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever.Amen.
In I Corinthians 10:14, he also said,"Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry."(Continue reading up to verse 21)
Just until now, in this very generation, many people still go on with their sins of idolatry. They even form strange images with their own imaginations as much as to please themselves and their gods.
They were blinded on the truth of worshipping the true and living God who gives us life. God had spoken in Isaiah 45: 5-9
vs.5 I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me;
vs.6 Thay they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the Lord, and there is none else.
vs.7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the Lord do all these things.
vs.8 Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the Lord have created it.
vs.9 Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What begettest thou? or to the woman, What hast thou brought forth?
In Revelation 21:8, St. John the Divine stated in his verse, "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone which is the second death.
I prepared these articles not to offend someone but to wake him up from his deep sleepiness. Ignore those false beliefs and wrong doctrines of faith and come boldly to the truth for we all know that the truth shall make us free.
"God is a Spirit; and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth. St. John 4:24
