“Son of man, these men have set up idols in their heart!” Ezekiel 14:3
“Their hearts were devoted to their idols!” Ezekiel 20:16
Whatever a man depends upon, whatever rules his mind, whatever governs his affections, whatever is the chief object of his delight–is his god.
Man is such an idolater that, if he cannot idolize anything else–he will idolize himself, and bow down and worship himself!
If you love anything better than God–you are idolaters. If there is anything you would not give up for God–it is your idol. If there is anything that you seek with greater fervor than God–that is your idol.
True conversion is a turning from every idol!
“They tell how you turned to God from idols, to serve the living and true God!” 1 Thessalonians 1:9
“Dear children, keep yourselves from idols!” 1 John 5:21
