There are many ways that one can commit idolatry, six of which will be listed here. First, you can commit idolatry if you worship another god. Worship means that you bow down to them in prayer, you value their opinion more than you value the opinion of the indwelling Holy Spirit Of God, and you trust them more than you trust yourself. If you need to know whether or not you are committing idolatry, ask the indwelling Holy Spirit Of God who is in you, or ask the indwelling Holy Spirit in another person. If you are in fact committing idolatry, you should repent instantly.
Second, you can commit idolatry if you speak words to suggest that you cannot trust God, and that you must rely on yourself. If you are relying on yourself, you should know that it is impossible to win a war against Satan if your only weapons are your mind and your spirit. You always will lose the war, instantly or eventually. You always will fail to see all of the forces that are coming against you.
Third, you are committing idolatry if you speak to someone other than God, and you ask for their protection. For example, some individuals rely on spouses whom they deem to be highly spiritual, on deceased relatives, or on demonic spirits, and they impute to them a greater power than the indwelling Holy Spirit Of God. Your only protector in this war against Satan is the indwelling Holy Spirit Of God. Only he can keep you safe for all eternity.
Fourth, you have committed idolatry if you speak to the demons from hell on a regular basis in order to get their advice on what you should do, where you should live, what you should say, or whom you should marry. Ask the indwelling Holy Spirit Of God whether or not you are conversing with demons from hell on a daily or on a regular basis. You cannot expect to speak to demons and not become entangled in a web of deception that is likely to be deadly. Nor can you expect to speak to demons and not become contaminated with demonic sludge. Every conversation with a demon, and every communication, will cause you to become contaminated, whether or not you can see the contamination.
Fifth, you are committing idolatry if you neglect to ask the indwelling Holy Spirit Of God for advice on a daily basis, and instead, you rely on your wisdom. Sixth, you have committed idolatry if you are holding on to things or to items that you value more than you value your relationship with God. The Lord God Almighty is El Shaddai.
