Revelation 21:8 - The Idolaters
"The cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral,
those who practice magic arts,
the idolaters and all liars
- their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."
The definition of an idolater is a worshiper of idols.

An idol is an image or other material object regarded
with blind admiration, adoration, or devotion.  It can
also be a figment of the mind or fantasy.
"You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the
earth beneath or in the waters below.  You shall not bow down to them or worship them;
for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the
fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a
thousand {generations} of those who love me and keep my commandments."
(Exodus 20:4-6)
"But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of
impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people.  Nor should there
be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving.   
For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person—such a man is an
idolater—has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God." (Ephesians 5:3-5)

This passage says the immoral, impure, or greedy person is an idolater.  You should not  
have even a hint of these traits.  This is not the way God’s holy people should act.  You  
need to remember when you claim to be a Christian you are representing God.  

How are you representing God?   With obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking?  Or do
people see your goods deeds and know God is at work in your life?
"Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God?  Do not be
deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor
idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor
homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor
swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
If you are an idolater the bible says you will go to hell!  Does this bother you?  When
compared to eternity, your life is short on Earth.  Why would someone want to go to hell
when God wants to give us his free gift of eternal life in Heaven?
Do you have any idols?
You cannot serve both God & money.

practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars — their place will be in the fiery lake of
burning sulfur."  (Revelation 21:8)
