In our makeup-for-men culture, Mark Driscoll wears combat boots. Today we feature a sermon jam off the upcoming release from our friends at 10:31. Driscoll, pastor of Mars Hill Church in Seattle, challenges us to see the idols of our culture.
While there’s nothing intrinsically sinful about recreation, food, sports, and entertainment — this is a great challenge to consider the idolatry that grows from these in our culture. He reminds us that it’s so much easier to see the idols of other cultures. The jam is titled America’s Idols:
“It dawned on me that idolatry is what we often see in someone else’s culture and in our culture we just think it’s the Bass Pro Shop, the steakhouse, we just think it’s the place to get recreational sporting goods, movie theater. We just see it as entertainment and see it as a hobby. We see it as sport. We don’t see it as religion. We don’t see it as spirituality. We don’t see it as idolatry.”
