  • Much of the Old Testament reveals how many times the children of Israel strayed away from God by worshiping idols.
    Idolatry is basically the idea of placing faith in things created by man rather than things created by God.
    You hopefully remember the golden calf, baals, etc.  Are we much different?  It’s easy to place faith in our own accomplishments, our fine homes, jobs, cars — perhaps even our giant church buildings.
