If you have been a Christian for any lenght of time, I’m sure that you have read the second commandment:
You shall have no other gods before me. Exodus 20:3
Oh, you say, that’s an easy one to keep. There is no shrine in the corner of my house. I don’t have an alter in the backyard. But really? Are you sure?
I recently can across an interview with Mark Driscoll, Pastor of the Mars Hill Church in Seattle. He was talking with Terry Moran, co-anchor on Nightline about modern day idolatry. When asked what idolatry is, Driscoll answers “[a]n idol is someone or something that occupies the place of God in your life.”
Watch it for yourself:
What do you think? Do you have anything that you put above God?
