Their denial of biblical authority makes it easy to accuse liberals of committing refined idolatry. The evangelical church in our day, however, can also build refined idols. Those who believe in a “God of love” without acknowledging His just wrath are guilty of refined idolatry. Any attempt to make God less sovereign than He really is makes us refined idolaters. Where is your belief about the Lord not in line with what He has revealed about Himself in Scripture?
God is looking for men and women who search after Him with their whole heart (Deut. 4:29). We will search for Him only if God gives us a willing heart to do so, and if He has given us such a heart, we will offer it to Him without reservation. That is, we will commit our highest love to Him, and endeavor to serve Him in every area of life. Are you doing those things?
