One thought on “Idolatry 1O1

  1. Idols, and Ideology

    “Dear children,
    Keep yourselves from idols”
    1John 5,21

    Idols? We turned away
    From ‘images’ centuries ago.
    The modern mind as you know
    Rejects polytheism, anyway.

    Yes, but, as J.B.Phillips would say,
    “Don’t let the World squeeze
    You into it’s mould”.
    Ideology redefines, can freeze
    Our values into tempting gold:
    The glitter of Science, Technology,
    ‘Guaranteed security’, ‘progress’,
    ‘A globalised economy’,
    ‘Prosperity’ without regress.

    “Lord we need a mind renewed
    Transformed, idols eschewed”.
