Description

Idolatry is a major spiritual issue in the Bible, but few in the Western world now recognize how extensive it is today. We don’t bow down to stone idols or have feasts around a tall pole to insure the harvest. Yet, as Calvin said, the human heart is an idol factory, and the basic themes of idolatry transcend time. Looking at the 7 archetypes of Idols found in 2 Kings 23, we will explore how idolatry is expressed today and how to spot and remove idols in your own life. Since idols can hide and even end up in the temple, identifying them and cleansing them can bring profound and unexpected blessing into your life. Discover what Asherah, Baal, Molech, Ashtoreth, Chemosh, and other gods looked like then, and how you can lead yourself and others to freedom today.
