Bible Term: Idolatry

Idolatry is literally the worship of an idol, a man-made image for a false god.

Figuratively, idolatry is a devotion to anything or anyone other than God. This can include the worship or idolizing of nature, people, material things, even leisure and a life of ease.

A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 700-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and numerous books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
