What does the word ‘idols’ mean in 1 John 5:21 and what exactly is idolatry?

‘Little children, guard yourselves from idols‘ (1 John 5:21).

What was John’s meaning? Did he mean, “Be careful not to end up in the local pagan temple” or does he intend to convey another type of idolatry (perhaps a spiritual idolatry of the heart)? Or does He mean both?
