QUOTE: "Most preachers feel like, 'If I'm going to preach about idols, I have to tell people what an idol is.' What they don't have in mind is, idolatry is at the root of all of our psychological problems, moral problems, cultural issues, our political problems. It is such a pervasive category in the Bible. ... I think what a minister needs to do is get [the pervasiveness of idolatry] into their bloodstream so they are always preaching with idolatry in mind. I think you have to understand the concept pretty deeply, and then it will influence the way in which you preach and the way in which you pastor." -Tim Keller, senior pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Manhattan, N.Y.
