by Bill Thrall, Bruce McNicol, and John S. Lynch
My paraphrase of their ideas: When we turn to other things instead of to God, we are telling the world that new life in Christ doesn't really work, and believing the ultimate lie, that God can't satisfy me as much as _____.
I know that lie. We have been frenemies for a long time, but thanks to The Cure, I am free at last. As someone I know said, "I'm already an apple tree." Except in the book's example, it was a butterfly. I'm sorry but that isn't going to make much sense until you read the book.
This book kick-started my pondering on idolatry.
"They are waiting more than living, often missing the destiny already being offered day by day."
