Another form of idolatry is a spiritual form and a potentially more dangerous form.. Whenever I google something or go on facebook or gmail, I am bombarded with adverts to read my fortune or read my stars, or have my tea-leaves read or my palm - or whatever else it is that one can read to see my future!
Lev 19 v 31: Give NO regard to mediums and familiar spirits; DO NOT seek after them, to be defiled by them: I AM the Lord your God!
Ps 96 v 5: For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but the Lord made the heavens.
Ps 97 v 7: Let all be put to shame who serve carved images, who boast of idols. Worship Him, all you gods.
We as Christians would be the first to claim that "we would never practice witchcraft" (insert look of horror here), but reading your horoscope, trying to find out your future through a fortune teller, trying to find something out from the dead, through a medium (a popular pastime on TV these days it seems), all these things are witchcraft.
