Idols | Images of the heart that take you away from God's Love.

Can you imagine carving a wooden statue, bowing down to it, and calling it your god?
It sounds ridiculous, right? Nobody in modern western culture would bow down to a wood statue, that's just stupid.
I've read about "Idols" all my life. I always wondered, why would these ancient people be so dumb as to bow down and worship a wooden statue? I mean, how ignorant do you have to be?

I never could gain complete mastery over the addict. I tried locking him away in a corner of my heart, but he kept getting free. That struggle culminated in my near-abandonment of everything I was and held dear.

Finally, I cracked.

"If I can't be a whole Christian," I reasoned, "I will be a whole heathen."

In October 2016, I went back to smoking, drinking, and I started having an affair. I moved into the guest room and told my wife I was leaving her, the kids, God, Jesus, Church... All of it.
