Category 1: Worshipping false gods

The Bible describes the worship of false gods with such terms as “delusion,” “futility,” and “useless.” Jehovah * God commanded the ancient nation of Israel: “You must not have any other gods besides me.” When the Israelites worshipped other gods, “Jehovah became enraged.”

God still has the same attitude toward the worship of such “so-called gods.”He commands those who want to worship him to stop associating with those who practice false religion, saying: “Get out from among them, and separate yourselves.”

Category 2: Worshipping the true God in a way he does not approve

At times, the Israelites worshipped God using beliefs and practices borrowed from the worship of false gods, but Jehovah rejected this attempt to mix true religion with false. Jesus condemned the religious leaders of his day because of the way they worshipped God; they made an outward show of being religious, yet they hypocritically “disregarded the weightier matters of the Law, namely, justice and mercy and faithfulness.”

Religion that is based on truth leads to God. This truth is found in the Bible. Religions whose teachings conflict with the Bible actually steer people away from God. Many teachings that people think come from the Bible—including the Trinity, the immortal soul, and eternal torment—were borrowed from those who worshipped false gods.
