Exposing Idols

A group of nine youth and three adult chaperones from our church attended the Riverside Youth Conference at California Baptist University and the Reformed Baptist Church of Riverside during June 24-26, 2011.  The guest speaker was Pastor Jonathan Christman of Heritage Baptist Church, Owensboro, KY.  Pastor Christman spoke on the subject of "Exposing Idols."  The Cornerstone adult Sunday school class on July, 10, 2011 will be used to give a summary of this important biblical subject.

Many people think of an idol as a physical statue or graven image.  Such physical objects are idols and worshipping them is forbiden in the Bible but idols include much more than just physical objects.  Idols include idols of the heart.  Here are some key biblical passages:

  • Romans 1:25 (an idol is anything for which we exchange the truth of God for a lie, that we worship and serve rather than the Creator)
  • Colossians 3:5 (idolatry is the sin behind every other sin)
  • Ezekiel 14:3-7 (idolatry originates in the heart)
  • 1 Cor. 10:14; 1 John 5:21 (Christians must deal with idolatry in their own lives)

Come to the adult Sunday school class this Lord's Day (7/10/2011) and learn more!
