When you hear the phrase “worship a false God”, people often think of people that are in cults and people who worship false God’s with names, Cthulhu for example. Or they think of the golden sacred calf in the Bible. But, in today’s society, people are worshiping false God’s all the time without even realizing it.
The newest way this has come at us is people saying that they are “spiritual” and that they pray to “their God”. Their God is usually some helper personality that agrees with everything they think. In reality, God has some very strict rules and worshiping God is fearing God.
