The Idol Hunt

Mike Ruel issues a strong warning against idolatry:

When we think about idolatry we sometimes can go to one of two extremes – one way is to think that it doesn’t relate to us at all, because let’s face it I’m not going to bow down and prostrate myself before a piece of wood. The other way is to make everything an idol and go on an extended morbid introspective idol hunt. Perhaps we classify things as idols that aren’t really idols and all the while our idol hunt draws us farther into us, instead of leading us out of ourselves towards the one true God.
