Worshiping multiple God’s (Idol Worship)

I am writing about this topic because it is a huge issue in the world.

According to Matthew 6:24- No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

This verse is very clear and distinctive when it comes to not serving two masters. If The Bible tells us that we can’t serve two masters then why are we serving two masters. A lot of people , especially New Agers, like to say they like to think of all the gods as one big happy family. 

That is a belief that is straight from the fire pits of hell ! I know that may sound harsh but I can ensure you that Athena (The Greek virgin god of reason and intelligent activity .)is not in heaven with the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob. Oprah Winfrey, one of the most popular supporters of this New Age doctrine of demons , may tell you that all gods are the same but The Bible , the book that has stood the test of time says otherwise. 

John 14:6 says -Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 

Jesus said loud and clearly in that verse that he is the ONLY way you will get into heaven. Jesus never said that if you feed the hungry children in third world counties that will ensure you an entry into heaven . Although God loves it when we take care of each other, he tells us that we can not get into heaven by doing earthly goods(He says this in Matthew 7:21-27).

Matthew 7:21-27 says- “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 

On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?

’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’ “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 

And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.

I know that verse has ruined someone’s theology but it’s important to follow biblical order instead of worldly tradition. When I say ruined someone’s theology I mean some denominations put more of an emphasis on earthly works than they do salvation and that is  not biblical.

Unlike humans God knows the heart ;He knows A LOT of people only do good things on earth because of the praise they will receive but he tells us that if we do good works we SHOULD NOT boast about them (2 Corinthians 10:12-18).

For we are not bold to number or compare ourselves with some of those who commend themselves. But they themselves, measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves with themselves, are without understanding. 13 But we will not boast beyond proper limits, but within the boundaries with which God appointed to us, which reach even to you. 14 For we don’t stretch ourselves too much, as though we didn’t reach to you. For we came even as far as to you with the Good News of Christ.

15 not boasting beyond proper limits in other men’s labors, but having hope that as your faith grows, we will be abundantly enlarged by you in our sphere of influence, 16 so as to preach the Good News even to the parts beyond you, not to boast in what someone else has already done. 17 But “he who boasts, let him boast in the Lord.” 18 For it isn’t he who commends himself who is approved, but whom the Lord commends.

If you do something good that’s great but you don’t have to boast about your good works and what you did.  Be what Matthew  6:4 describes as an “unseen worker”.

Matthew 6:4 says, “So that your merciful deeds may be in secret, then your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.” Their are so many people out their who want the entire earth to know what they have done but as long as God knows, that is what only matters.

I was watching television the other day and I saw a girl who prayed to multiple gods.  She said one of the gods she prayed to was the God of Christianity and the other god was Buddha and some other Hindu gods.  That is strictly unbiblical and should never be done.  I am writing about this topic because it is a huge issue in the world.
