The third chapter of Daniel offers a lesson on idols that prompts three questions: Where do idols come from? How do we acquire them? And how can we resist them?
Psalm 115 offers a scathing commentary on the practice of idolatry that seems easy to dismiss – most of us are not bowing in worship to idols carved from silver and gold. Yet, as Martin Luther observed, “Anything on which your heart relies and depends, I say, that is really your God.” With this in mind, Dan Beilman looks at some of our modern-day idols and how we can be free of them.
