“What is the greatest obstacle to God’s mission in the world? It is not other religions, or a resistant culture. Our idolatry is the single biggest obstacle to world mission. We are a scandal, a stumbling block to the mission of God. Reformation is the desperate need of our day, and it must start with us. If we want to change the world, we must first change our world.”
There are many idols, many false Gods but three stand out:
- Power and pride
- Popularity and success
- Wealth and greed
The whole of scripture gives us strong warnings against these idols that pervert people.
