With rampant terrorism at home and abroad maybe you've asked yourself, "What makes people use Anthrax or become suicide bombers?" Or in light of other recent events, "What makes wealthy CEOs bankrupt innocent people?" Simply put, "How can anyone be so evil?"
In his epistle, St. John the Evangelist explains the evil acts of men by saying "We know that we are of God and the whole world is in the power of the evil one." If we are truly "of God" we will not do the works of Satan. And in the last sentence of his letter, St. John tells how we can make sure we are true followers of Christ. He tells us, "Little children, keep yourselves from idols."
Don't Let the Devil Lure You
Now, is St. John just talking to Christians converts from Paganism who are in danger of worshiping statues in the great temples of Greece? No! According to well-known Catholic author Kristine Franklin, St. John is talking to us -- to the Church. We are the ones who need to stop worshipping idols!
Kristine Franklin once worked as an evangelical missionary in Guatemala and Costa Rica, attempting to convert Catholics. Now a Catholic, herself, she is still "bringing Catholics to Christ." And in the all-new 3 tape (or CD) series,Little Children Keep Yourself From Idols, she will help you take a hard look at yourself and eliminate the "idols" that are keeping you from growing closer to God!
Meant to be God's "Virtuosos"
Idols are anything we love or serve more than God. Throughout the Old Testament idolatry was a constant problem for the Jews and we aren't any different. We have a constant tendency to want something more than Him but, as Kristine explains, we are made for nothing less than God.
To explain the effect of idols on our souls, Kristine recalls when her daughter was a baby. Having just moved to Minnesota, they went swimming at a beautiful lake, but when the baby came out she was covered with leaches! Her native Minnesotan friends told a horrified Kristine that the leaches were harmless, but she noticed that they left little wounds. Similarly, we often turn a blind eye to the idols of our culture, while they suck the vital graces from our souls, leaving us lukewarm and indifferent to God.
The Pope's Crucial Advice for America
And what are the idols of our culture? When our Holy Father visited the United States in the early days of his pontificate, he said that Americans had to be careful not to worship the idols of pleasure, comfort and independence, or they would close their hearts and become selfish.
In this series, Kristine explains how these three idols - independence, comfort and pleasure -- keep us from advancing spiritually. She also examines the root sins behind each of these idols and explains the inherent weaknesses that predispose us to these sins.
With personal and funny examples Kristine will help you confront your idols so that you can be healed spiritually. She shows you how to reach spiritual freedom by knowing yourself, and by knowing and imitating Christ. And you'll learn how to avoid vice, not only by plucking out the root sins behind each idol, but also by actively practicing virtue. Order Little Children Keep Yourself From Idols today and make the spiritual progress God wants you to make!
