Speaker: Louise Høgild, bach. theol. and working in Lutheran Mission.
In the book “Not all that glitters is God” author Timothy Keller discusses the typical idols of late modern. Keller is inspired by Martin luther in his view of idols, but there are big differences in the idols highlighted by the two theologians.
Both Luther and Keller defines an idol in relationship to the heart and not the object itself. The important thing is what your heart is focused on. That means that everything can become an idol, even that which is originally good and willed by God.
Learn more about idols in the understanding of Kellers and Luther and idols in our society today and join the debate and conversation.
