Pastor W. F Kumuyi, the General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church emphasized more on the issue of idolatry in a recent bible study program. He warns members about the dangers of Idolatry and urged them to exalt God in their lives. He however diverted a little and talked about churches who practise any form of idolatry. He read from the book of 2 Chronicles 11: 15- 16 which says
" And he ordained him priests for the high places, and for the devils, and for the calves which he made. And after them out of all the tribes of Israel such as set their hearts to seek the Lord God of Israel came to Jerusalem, to sacrifice unto the Lord God of their fathers" .
Here, the tribes of Israel left Israel to Judah when King Jeroboam institutionalized Idolatry at all levels. The man of God however said that anyone who attends a church where they worship any kind of idols can follow the examples of the tribes in Israel. Possibly, you attend a church where they talk about Jesus, they talk about the Bible, and you know that they are worshipping idols and they are not really standing by the Bible and the word of God, the man of God advised that such a person should leave that church.
Now you are born again and a child of God, and those people want to be worshipping idols and doing things not according to the word of God, we are commanded to follow these example. The man of God went further and said that anywhere they are, idolatry is going on; they are exalting the creature above the creator; darkness has taken over light; they are compromising the true gospel. He thereby warned that such a person should leave that church and join a Bible believing church.
In conclusion, one has to check the kind of Church he/she attends and pick a Bible believing church. Church where there is no guile and idolatry and where they are standing in the truth. God will help us to succumb to these commandments in Jesus name.
