What does it mean to avoid idolatry in today’s culture? In this message on the Second Commandment, Alistair Begg reminds us that God’s law addresses more than just bowing down to statues. In every place and time, God commands us to worship Him only as He has revealed Himself in the Bible. When we worship Him according to our own ideas instead, we dishonor God and lead others astray.
Pathway to Freedom
Here are the Maker’s instructions, and it’s time to give them careful attention. In a culture that glorifies self and disregards truth, God’s Word speaks clearly into every area of our lives. He does not offer us what we want to hear, but He shows us what we need most of all. The Ten Commandments do not provide us with a ladder to climb to reach acceptance with God. Instead, they are a mirror that exposes our sin and sends us to Christ as Savior. These commandments are the pathway for the Christian to enjoy the fullness and freedom that our Heavenly Father intends.
