The Besetting Sin of the Church

Charles Spurgeon said, “Man is such an idolater that if he cannot idolise anything else, he’ll idolise and bow down to himself.” This is an accurate statement. There’s something innate in mankind that’s drawn to things that can be touched or seen. And make no mistake about it – as idolatry was the scourge of Israel in the Bible, the same thing can be said of the Church today. It was Israel’s besetting sin, her stumbling block and Achilles’ heel, and it plagued her all through her history. As God removed every trace of idolatry from Israel, He’s going to do the same with the Church. We cannot have revival until we lay down our idols.
