False God Bondage 

There are many “False Gods” out there that are used as idols that keeps one in bondage, and although it may appear that the “False Gods” create the bondage, the bondage is to I that attaches to the idol.

There are many traps that induce bondage in the world, the Bible uses the description of “False Gods” and there’s no difference if it’s an idol as stated in the Bible or simply attaching to a self image, to me the “False God” description is right on. Here’s where this gets tricky because anything that is made into a story and is attached to is a “False God” because it becomes a prison to the one who is attached to the story. Even God is made into an idol by most people and becomes a prison although most don’t see this. Just look at the different religions and how all the followers of a particular one think theirs is the right one. Many of these religions have beautiful teachings, but it’s in the way they’re attached to that actually takes away from them. This isn’t to say there isn’t value in them, but there’s never value in attaching to something because it enforces an I am right and you are wrong aura.

I found this “False God” attachment happening to me yesterday, someone didn’t agree with my article, so right away I felt I had to defend it, after all I wrote it so it has to be right, lol. I always have to look at myself so I can identify what form my “False God” is taking on. I’m not saying there is or isn’t a God, this is just to show how attachment to anything becomes bondage and blocks the heart from remaining open to allow everything its freedom. “False Gods” take over when they get control of I as I become one’s idol. I am right is an idol, as is anything one reaches for. The world presents many “False Gods” disguised as idols and until these “False Gods” are identified, the idol of I will remain and so will one’s bondage.
