It may surprise you to learn that the second commandment is the most repeated commandment of all the Ten Commandments in the entire Bible. The word "idol" or "idolatry" appears over 220 times in Scripture. There is more denunciation of idolatry that any other sin you find in God's Word. In this message, Dr. Merritt explains what idol worship might look like in our culture today, and how it keeps us from a relationship with the very real God.

"Idolatry is still a problem, because today the idols that we worship are not the ones we make with our hands, but the ones we make with our heart. They are not primarily metal. They are primarily mental." --Dr. Merritt
