I'm currently in the middle of listening to a sermon series on the Ten Commandments, so as this theme of idolatry popped up here it was hard to ignore. I know I've mentioned it before, but idolatry seems to be common sin in the history of the world, and it can rear its ugly head in lots of ways. Anything that takes your affection away from God should be considered idolatry. For some people that means drugs and sex. For others, materialism or children. It can also take other, unsuspected forms such as worship of the bible rather than the God of the bible, or worship of religious routine as opposed to of the Lord himself. With God as the supreme being, the reality is that there is no one else worthy of our worship, and there is no object that rivals its creator. Are you worshiping your heavenly Father, or are you worshiping a substitute?
