Vol. 12 No. 1 (2011): Idolatry
From the editorial:
We know that in spite of Isaiah’s insistence that idols are nothing, and Paul’s assertion that “no idol in the world really exists,” 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 “flee from the worship of idols.” 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.
