Someone once wisely stated, “Idolatry is the track on which the train of demons rides.” It’s true, if we turn from the True and Living God to worship idols or we turn the True and Living God into an idol–someone of our own creation–we open ourselves up to demonic activity.
Because of idolatry, the church has become susceptible to demonic presence primarily in the form of false prophets and false teachers. How do we recognize demons in our midst? By having the gift of discernment of spirits–a gift we will learn about in today’s
study in 1 Corinthians.
May God help us to discern good from evil in every area of our lives,
