How Much For That Idol?

So the bipolar chick who hasn’t gone to church in years wants to talk about something in the Bible.

Idolatry. Who’s guilty of this one? All of us. Some worse than others. This is the one sin that spreads like a virus throughout society.

When God said, “You shall have no other gods before Me” in Exodus 20: 3, He wasn’t just talking about the imaginary deities that seem ridiculous today.

He was talking about  anything that usurps His place as number one in our hearts. Shall we make a list of modern-day usurpers?

Money – How many of us worship money? People sue, fight and kill for money. Ex-spouses get whipped in court over money.

Sports – Church on one hand and NFL on the other. C’mon Americans. You know the score.

Possession – Coach, Dolce & Gabanna, Louis Vuitton, Mercedes-Benz, yachts, HD flat screen TV  …. the list goes on and on. We just love our toys and trinkets! God help the guy that tries to steal my stuff.

By the way, when you love something so much (like money) that you’re willing to throw the poor, disabled or children under the bus, you are an idolater.

So when that fine Christian senator votes against programs for the aforementioned groups, ask yourself how many millionaires is he helping out.

And just for the record, I am a sinner. I am guilty of idolatry. And I may go to hell. But I don’t wave a Christian flag as if I’m better than others.

I wouldn’t screw over people in desperate need to make a buck. Or any people for that matter. America needs to get its priorities straight.

We have jailed ourselves in cells we can’t afford. We prefer to be consumers rather than human beings. Now go back to your Game Of Thrones on the DVR.
