Idolatry and Sin

Mark Driscoll on American Idolatry

Sin isn’t only doing bad things, it is more fundamentally making good things into ultimate things. Sin is building your life and meaning on anything, even a very good thing, more than on God. Whatever we build our life on will drive us and enslave us. Sin is primarily idolatry.

Tim Keller (from "Talking About Idolatry in a Postmodern Age")
