A SPIRIT OF
IDOLATRY WILL
DRIVE YOU OUT OF
CHURCH
We think of idols as man-made
objects.
We can put people on pedestals and
make them idols also.
“Formerly, when you did not know
God, you were enslaved to those that
by nature are not gods.”
(Galatians 4:8)
The demonic realm works to knock that
person off the pedestal so a person's
faith is shipwrecked.
We can put pastors and leaders up
on pedestals
