Whiteboard Sessions – Darrin Patrick

Darrin’s One Compelling Idea:

“Once we understand the gospel we will get rid of our idols.”

Supportive content:

  • We are ruled by what we worship.
  • We gave up ruling over the world when we chose to worship the creation instead of the Creator.
  • Worship is the response of being captivated.
  • We worship what captivates us.
  • Idolatry is the root of all sin.
  • An idol is anything in creation that I worship other than God.
  • Idols are what we put our hope and meaning in.
  • Idols are the alternative to worshiping God.
  • The reason for any sin is idolatry.
  • We know our idols when they are threatened or disturbed.
  • What motivates behavior? This is where our idols hide.
  • How you do deal with your idol?

  1. “Once we understand the gospel we will get rid of our idols.” Idolatry is the root of all sin.

    This is great! i guess i would add that a deep understanding and embrace of God’s grace (the message of the gospel) is our only mean by which we can follow the 1st commandment and as Augustie/luther/calvin/etc/tim keller/da Carson/etc/ say sin always involves that 1st commdnament in some way.

    what’s your background Ron?

    • Bruce,

      Excellent comment. I agree.

      My back ground is pastoral ministry. I have also had the opprotunity to train ministry leaders nationally. Presently, I am starting a new community based organization and church. You can read of my present journey on my blog: ronklabunde.com and see what we are doing for community outreach at enrichnova.com

      Ron
