Sexual prudes cringe when the topic of sex is brought up. Sexual revolutionaries are usually the ones who bring it up. But the idol of sex attracts, deceives and defeats both kinds of people. Only through the grace of Christ – the only sexual faithful – can we receive pardon for sexual sins and power to resist lust.
Lagosians know a thing or two about physical idols but in the 21st century we think of them more as harmless cultural artefacts kept in museums. The Bible however, teaches us that they’re more than that – our hearts are idol-making factories that exert power on us through three main surface idols: Money, Sex and Power. In the “Idols and the City” sermon series, from September 2nd to November 25th, we will see that only the Gospel of Christ can truly give us the fulfillment we seek from these idols and deliver us from their bondage.
