Is That Right?
I've have seen this several places recently, by people I respect, but I don't know if I agree. The statement is that idolatry is the root of all sin. Now I get nervous whenever anyone chooses to create such absolute statements like this. I don't know if I agree that idolatry is the root of all sin. I would think that selfishness is the root of all sin. To me, selfishness often leads to idolatry. I guess it really depends on how you define idolatry. I'm just not sure that idolatry is the root of all sin, but it sure seems like selfishness fits the description more. I don't know why we have to make such statements in the first place. Thoughts?
