Little Boy Prays TO Barack Obama

The man stands for all things godless, yet how many other young minds in this country are being either taught or allowed to think of Obama as so much more than President? Barack Obama, thank you for doing everything and all the kind stuff. Thank you for all the stuff that you helped us with. […]

The Hewn Stones of Contemporary Worship

If you make an altar of stone for Me, you shall not build it of cut stones, for if you wield your tool on it, you will profane it. – Exodus 20:25 This and other verses in this chapter have to do with the public worship of God. They concern the regulations or rules for […]

When Politicians Substitute gods for God

They follow a pattern as old as man and most assuredly a pattern as spelled out in I Kings 12:21, 31-33. Men in Adam will always find an excuse to abandon the Word of God as the only safe guide for society. This is particularly so in the passage we refer to today. The kingdom […]

Manufacturing Heart Idols

Therefore speak to them and tell them, ‘Thus says the Lord God, Any man of the house of Israel who sets up his idols in his heart, puts right before his face the stumbling block of his iniquity, and then comes to the prophet, I the Lord will be brought to give him an answer […]

Patriotic Idolatry

By myself I have sworn; from my mouth has gone out in righteousness a word that shall not return: ‘To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear allegiance.’ – Isaiah 45:23 The Lord would have us pledge allegiance, that is, swear an oath, to none other than Himself as the One True King. […]

New Birth Crowns Bishop Eddie Long as King

But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, […]

Turning Prayer Into an Idol

It is almost, if not absolutely, redundant to say we live in dangerous times. It has been this way since the fall of man in the garden. Each generation brings it’s own shortcomings to the table, and the visible Church is no exception. I dare say, that in every case, the reason has been a […]

The Pulpit, Reformation Day & Idolatry

“I have preached the gospel now these thirty years and more, and some of you will scarcely believe it, but before I come to address the congregation in this Tabernacle, I tremble like an aspen leaf. And often, in coming down this pulpit, have I felt my knees knock together–not that I am afraid of […]

Why I Reject Infant Baptism As A Biblical Practice

Our Lord Jesus left no command, precept or example to baptize infants, even when He had opportunity found in the written Gospels. Scripture as a whole is completely silent on the practice. There is not one precedent found anywhere. Every ordinance and practice in the worship of God must have the authorization of Scripture itself. […]

Yes, America, I See That Hand

Apparently, churches across the nation are being asked to re-dedicate America to God in a national covenant prayer on July 3 as an affirmation of God’s sovereignty over the U.S and to remind us of the founding fathers. The prayer being distributed is: Father, As Your Christian nation, we affirm our covenant: You, the LORD, […]

O Foolish Americans!


Where Scripture Has No Tongue

If infant baptism had been any appointment or ordinance of Jesus Christ, there would have been some precept, command, or example in the Scripture to warrant the same; but inasmuch as the Scripture is so wholly silent therein, there being not one syllable to be found in all the New Testament about any such practice, […]

An African-American Icon Speaks Truth To The Lincoln Cult

Since reading The Real Lincoln by Thomas J. DiLorenzo some years ago, I have been amazed at the perpetuity of the myths surrounding Abraham Lincoln. To be quite honest, the mere mention of the man makes me cringe. The atrocities  and war crimes sanctioned by this man and his blatant dismissal of the Constitution and […]

2010 Band of Bloggers

In conjunction with the 2010 T4G Conference, Timmy Brister is gathering together bloggers from all over “for encouragement, fellowship, and discussion of issues related to new media and the gospel.” The theme for this year’s meeting is“Internet Idolatry and Gospel Fidelity.” With the advent of new media and the increasing influence of technology on our […]

“Mass We Pray” – Roman Catholicism … The Video Game

Just when I thought I’d seen it all…. Here’s a new video game that claims you can worship the Lord without ever going to church again. That’s right, complete with cross-shaped game controller, you can now practice 24 types of idolatry and blaspheme God, without ever leaving the comfort of your home. Why, for extra, […]

Shane Hipps Teaches All Religions Are Valid

“Shane Hipps, who is now Rob Bell’s co-pastor at Mars Hill Bible church in Grand Rapids teaches that all religions are valid and that even Osama Bin Laden has the divine spark within him. NO KIDDING! This is a VERY serious and troubling heresy that Hipps promotes and we at the Museum of Idolatry believe […]

Our Household Idols?

Whatever draws away the heart from God, is an idol in his sight. Our domestic ease, our family comforts, too often become our household gods, at whose shrine we sacrifice the claims of Christ. – Thomas Reade, from “Christian Experience.”
