1st John 5:21
1 John 5:21 “Dear children, keep away from statues of gods.”
An idol is anything in this life that man worships instead of God. Or something he allows to take God’s place. It can be money, career safety, pleasure or another person. John also could have meant all the pagan gods back then, because there were many. We need to put God first in our lives and stay away from false religions.
