Another quality eBook from Chapel Library. J.C. Ryle (1816-1900) explores the question of idolatry, demonstrating that it is not merely a problem of uncivilized heathens with their stone images, but occurs in any man when he redirects his worship away from God, choosing instead, to give it to one of His creatures. He identifies the cause of idolatry in the natural corruption of men’s hearts, and demonstrates its insidious forms in our modern society, including within the visible church. But, with the second coming of Christ, Ryle assures us that the ultimate abolition of idolatry is sure, cautioning us in the meantime to arm ourselves with a thorough knowledge of the Word, a godly jealousy over any portion of the Gospel, and a continual communion with the person of the Lord Jesus Christ, that may we understand how to flee from idolatry.
