The car security light came on and now stays on but I don't have a security system.

It just popped on when I started the car. The car ran fine. I turned it off and on about 4x and it started each time fine.

Do you
have the same problem?

You have a factory security system I posted a description of how it works.

Thank you. What do I need to do now? Purchase another key? My spare key that I've never used since I got the car 5 years ago didn't help. The light was still on. Am I not going to be able to start my car eventually?

The most common reason is the wire going to the ignition cylinder breaking.
