LAY DOWN ALL MY IDOLS 10-24-21 VIDEO
Our God is God. Its time for us to settle in our hearts once and for all who we will serve. Our God is God. So we probably dont bow down to any statues or worship them but what do you bow down to? Money, job, Fear of man, fear, popularity etc. We are asked to not be double minded. We need to know that Yahweh is number one not our concerns or cares of this world, it is in the power of worship that we get our priorities straight. You and I become like who we worship.

17 So leave the corruption and compromise; leave it for good," says God. "Don't link up with those who will pollute you. I want you all for myself.
