“An Idol is anything that absorbs your heart and imagination more than God.” – Timothy Keller, Counterfeit Gods
So, how many gods are there really? Is it possible to worship more than one god if there is only one, true God? Many of us aren’t bowing before golden calves so we can’t be idolaters, correct? Is idolatry truly the sin of our age?
In this episode of The Podechesis Podcast, Allen, Jim and Brett talk about question 5 in John Wesley’s Revision of the Westminster Shorter Catechism, “Are there more gods than one?” During this discussion, the boys will talk about what gods demand their worship, why worshipping the one, true, living God is not limiting; its life giving, how following Jesus demands us to take a deep look at what truly has our hearts.
Along the way, Allen will confess that he has an altar in his office to UGA, Jim will try to convince us that M&Ms should be perfectly fine being used as communion wafers, and Brett will confess his love for dad jokes.
