The General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor W. F Kumuyi warned his members about the negative effect of Idolatry. God frowns at idolatry and he had warned the Israelites against it while they were in the wilderness. He warned them against bowing down to other gods either directly or indirectly. In this generation we might not be bowing down to strange gods, but there are other things we place more than God. Those things are also idols and the man of God warned members against such. He read from the book of I Corinthians 10: 21 which says
" Yes cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils; ye cannot be partakers of the Lord' s table, and of the table of devils.
The man of God however warned member against trying to serve two gods. He said that one cannot serve God and at the same time serve the Devil. He said that we cannot be halting between Satan and the Saviour; we cannot be halting between the devil and Christ. He further asked them to make their ways clear and say where they actually belong to. You cannot serve God and Mammon.
He further read from the book of Matthew 6: 24 which says
" 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"
It is however impossible for Jesus to be your saviour and you are serving the devil at the same time. You just have to reject one for another. If you are for God, you just have toakenit known and if you are for the devil, make it known.
In conclusion, we are expected to remain in Christ, Jesus should be before anything in our life and we have to always reference him in our life and God will help us to succumb in Jesus name.
