Men’s Bible Study At Center Barnstead Christian
Sin come from? In his latest work, Gods at War: Defeating the Idols
that Battle for Your Heart, Pastor Kyle Idleman challenges us with the
thought that perhaps all sin springs from the same source – Idolatry.
While we may not see many “graven images” in our world today, there are
still countless gods (work, money, politics, recreation, etc.),
passionately at war for the throne of our heart. If we put the wrong god
on the throne, our lives will be thrown into chaos, and all our efforts
at sin management will be futile. Only by recognizing our misplaced
worship and by enthroning God can we experience freedom and life.
Is a book
on idolatry even necessary? Idolatry seems so primitive, so irrelevant;
why not a book about graven images and witch doctors? Many people today
think idolatry is not an issue dealt with in today’s times. And yet
idolatry is the number one issue in the Bible, and that should raise red
flags for us. In all of Judaism, it was one of only four sins to which
the death penalty was attached.
April 10, Center Barnstead Christian Church will explore the idea that
Idolatry is prevalent in today’s world, creating conflict within our
lives. And, how we, as believers, can identify and defeat the myriad of
idols infecting our own lives.
If you are
ready to put some serious work into your relationship with God, join
your neighbors at Center Barnstead Christian Church. A weekly series of
studies will begin Wednesday, April 10, at 6 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Each
study will run for one hour. As spring blossoms, now is the time for
all of us to prune the non-productive branches from our lives and
encourage new growth.
