1 John 5:18-21 Speaks of the "true God" and concludes by warning Jesus' followers to "keep yourself from idols." What it meant then vs. what it means today may seemingly be different in nature or is it? This message unwinds the "thread of idolatry" from Genesis to Revelation and is a warning and encouragement to the Body of Christ to "buckle up" NOW as we move into a "post-Christian age" immersed in a pervasive and expanding human-based secularism. We are slowly moving into an Early Church experience of a minority position as to whom we will bow---to God or the idol of Self.
