Vol. 12 No. 1 (2011): Idolatry
From the editorial:
We know that in spite of Isaiahâ€™s insistence that idols are nothing, and Paulâ€™s assertion that â€œno idol in the world really exists,â€ the persistent command to reject idolatry echoes throughout scripture. Deuteronomy calls Israel to serve God alone and to repudiate all other allegiances. Paul asserts that the Corinthian believers ought to â€œflee from the worship of idols.â€ The articles and poetry in this issue of Vision are bound to encourage us to let go of counterfeit allegiances, misplaced desires, quick-fix solutions, and the illusions of market demands, and to empower us to pledge allegiance only to the kingdom of God, where we find true freedom and life abundant.
