The worship of the true God versus the worship of idols is a fundamental biblical category for making sense of our lives, and even for distinguishing the people of God from the heathen. Yet today our noses have not been trained to detect the scent of an idol. If we were to set off on an idol hunt, we would run hither and yon until we ended up in Asia somewhere. But we have plenty of idolatry right here in America, and our objective this Lord's Day is to learn its smell.
