Identifying Idols in Christian Ministry
The very first commandment of the Ten Commandments is "I am your God--have no other gods before me." There is no third option between those two. Rom 1:25 says we will "worship and serve" either God or some created thing (an idol). It is not possible that we should worship nothing. Something will capture our hearts and imaginations and be the most important object of our affections, the ultimate concern, value, or allegiance. So every personality, community, and thought-form will be based on either God Himself or on some god-substitute, an idol. This danger is a real struggle for even pastors!
