Dr. Beverly Yahnke on Meaning of Idolatry

I’ve come to believe that one of the most insidious threats to the Christian and to his faith is the presence of idols in his life. The unholy altar at which Christians stumble rests in their hearts and minds. In the privacy of their hearts they unblinkingly and unthinkingly worship the unholy Trinity of “me, myself and I.” Idols are our quiet, whispering habits of self-reliance that seduce us away from our dependency on our Heavenly Father. Briefly defined, I believe that postmodern idols are our solution for our own problems. Sadly it is often our solutions that sustain our spiritual distress.
