Idolatry, Man Of God, Beware!

What is an idol to you? Can you clearly demarcate your passion and love for things or people and the worship of them? Sometimes, things that you adore, love to have or do, if care is not taken, can become gods to you. And gods crave to be worshipped and that, Man of God is idolatry!

Lately I’ve been seeing friends, Christians and non-Christians alike, participating in this event’s called “Color Runs” which are usually 5k runs, were people wear white and stop by color stations to throw colored powder on themselves, their friends and in the air.

The most important step in becoming a productive minimalist is in getting rid of the TV. This almost seems like an alien concept for the 21st century lifestyle, but I can assure you the benefits are there in abundance.

The Deceitfulness of Wealth

The deceitfulness of wealth ignores spiritual, social, emotional, mental, and criminal aspects of life. The trap: constant consumption, mass entertainment including sex oriented industries, easy credit, leading into increasing unreasonable debt, employment, insecurity, instabilities. Loss of self control and moderation, leading into irresponsible spending, with uncertain future income, increasing debt, all leading into a trap such that life becomes constant anxiety with no way out. 60-80% of human activity is counted in financial terms. A tripling of the role of money. The managing of money has become an increasingly larger industry in itself – administering rights and obligations of owners
