What thing, if you lost it, could almost mean that you would lose the will to live? What thing, if you lost it, could mean that almost all significance and value would be drained out of your life? Whatever that thing is… the bible calls it an ‘idol’.
Timothy Keller makes an excellent introduction to the topic of idolatry and the condition of the human heart. I strongly recommend watching his teaching in the video below to get a better understanding of what is wrong with our hearts in the first place, before diving into the “Embracing a Heart of Flesh” workshop videos. This is especially true if you are newer to the Christian faith or questioning the claims of Christ in God’s word.
An awful lot about what Christian faith teaches about salvation and about Jesus doesn’t make sense unless you understand what the bible teaches about the human heart.
