Do You Worship An Idol?

I found this verse while preparing for my message at church this past Sunday:

Eph 5:5
(5) Being greedy, indecent, or immoral is just another way of worshiping idols. You can be sure that people who behave in this way will never be part of the kingdom that belongs to Christ and to God.

Having sex (not just sexual intercourse, but any sex act outside of marriage... including fondling!) outside of marriage is idol worship!

Infact Jesus further raises the bar:

Mat 5:27-28
(27) You know the commandment which says, "Be faithful in marriage."
(28) But I tell you that if you look at another woman and want her, you are already unfaithful in your thoughts.

Wow! Talk about living by a higher standard.
So the challenge is... are you worshiping the idol of sex / fornication / adultery?
If so... STOP IT!
The truth is you can't worship Jesus and other idols!

A heavy post... but the Truth will set us free.

Please do leave a comment about your thoughts re: this post.
