Attributes of God | Idolatry | Materialism | Self | Transcendence | Worldliness | Worship

Worship is a countercurrent to the drift into materialism, narcissistic self- indulgence, and the relentless bombardment of the media. Worship opens up to the transcendent and enables us to see through the make-believe character of the unreal world. It frees us from the idolatry of the mall and the marketplace, it liberates us from false deadlines, myopic vision, and the obsession with comforts and pleasures that delight the flesh but demand the soul in exchange. Though these idols will continue to tempt us, worship exposes them, names them for what they are, and diminishes their power over us. By Brennan Manning, Youthworker, Spring, 1991
