Idolatry

counterfeit_gods“anything more important to you than God,
anything that absorbs your heart and imagination more than God,
anything you seek to give you what only God can give.”
Tim Keller – Counterfeit Gods

Success, true love, and the life you’ve always wanted. Many of us placed our faith in these things, believing they held the key to happiness, but with a sneaking suspicion they might not deliver. The recent economic meltdown has cast a harsh new light on these pursuits. In a matter of months, fortunes, marriages, careers, and a secure retirement have disappeared for millions of people. No wonder so many of us feel lost, alone, disenchanted, and resentful.
