Lately, television news anchors have been excitedly advertising "the final season of Game of Thrones!" People seem to be going crazy over this show, some even dressing up like the characters of this fantasy set in Medieval times. There's a place in Ireland where you can even go to spend your money to live out the fantasy...

Sex today, in this fallen world of ours, seems to equate to nothing more than a handshake. It's turned into a type of idolatry from which there is no turning back.

1 John 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols.
1 Corinthians 10:14 Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.
Galatians 5:19. For you know the works of the flesh, which are these: adultery, impurity and lasciviousness, 20. idolatry, witchcraft, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, stubbornness, treacheries, heresies, 21. Envy, murder, drunkenness, revelry and all like things. Those who do things like these, they will not inherit the Kingdom of Elohim. (AENT)
Jonah 2:8 8 "Those who worship vain idols give up their source of mercy… (CJB)
