 Re: Idolatry in the Church

Idolatry is in the heart of man not something he does.

We must give God our hearts everyday.

When we do not trust,love and obey Him from our heart that is the measure our hearts have departed from the Lord.

We are His children and He bought us for a dear price that He would be known in our hearts.

God loves us soooo much !!!

Do we love Him ???

We can break Gods heart.....that is idolatry.

A Hymn by A. B. Simpson about surrendered idols:



Once it was the blessing



Once it was the blessing,
Now it is the Lord;
Once it was the feeling,
Now it is His Word;

Once His gift I wanted,
Now, the Giver own;
Once I sought for healing,
Now Himself alone.

All in all forever,
Only Christ I'll sing;
Everything is in Christ,
And Christ is everything.

Once 'twas painful trying,
Now 'tis perfect trust;
Once a half salvation,
Now the uttermost;

Once 'twas ceaseless holding,
Now He holds me fast;
Once 'twas constant drifting,
Now my anchor's cast.

Once 'twas busy planning,
Now 'tis trustful prayer;
Once 'twas anxious caring,
Now He has the care;

Once 'twas what I wanted,
Now what Jesus says;
Once 'twas constant asking,
Now 'tis ceaseless praise.

Once it was my working,
His it hence shall be;
Once I tried to use Him,
Now He uses me;

Once the pow'r I wanted,
Now the Mighty One;
Once for self I labored,
Now for Him alone.

Once I hoped in Jesus,
Now I know He's mine;
Once my lamps were dying,
Now they brightly shine;

Once for death I waited,
Now His coming hail;
And my hopes are anchored
Safe within the veil.

 Re: Idolatry in the Church

i think we as human beings (especially in the church) have a tendency to worship God's "gifts" and "blessings" in whatever shape or form more than God Himself turning our "seeking" of God into a means for our own personal end, thus robbing God of the glory that He deserves
