[1st 3 commandments]
1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
3. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them:
---------Scriptures referring to IDOLATRY and IDOL WORSHIP--------
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Repent, and turn yourselves from your IDOLS; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.
[1 SAMUEL 15:23]
For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and IDOLATRY.
[1 CORINTHIANS 10:14]
Wherefore, my dearly beloved, Flee from IDOLATRY.
19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance (loves conflict), emulations (be like another), wrath, strife, sedition's (rebellion/lawless), heresies (atheist),
21 Envying s, murders, drunkenness, revelings (partying), and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is IDOLATRY:
[1 Corinthians 5:9-11]
9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters;
11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an IDOLATER, or a railer (curses), or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
[1 Corinthians 6: 9-10]
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor IDOLATERS, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
[1 Corinthians 10:7]
Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play.
[Ephesians 5: 3-11]
But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becomes saints;
Eph 5:4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting(joking), which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.
Eph 5:5 For this ye know, that no whore-monger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an IDOLATER, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things comes the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
Eph 5:7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
Eph 5:8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:
Eph 5:9 (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)
Eph 5:10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
Eph 5:11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whore-mongers, and sorcerers, and IDOLATERS, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
14 Blessed are they that do his Commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whore mongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loves and makes a lie.
16 I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that hears say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat(consume or use) things sacrificed unto IDOLS, and to commit fornication.
