The Idols of The Church

"The contemporary church, in contrast, for the most part has made its peace with this society's "best." In a society in which idolatry runs rampant, a church that is not iconoclastic is a travesty. If it is not against the idols it is with them." Idols For Destruction page 254

Is even the "best" of television, movies, music worthy of Christian admiration?

"Alexander Schmemann, writing of the schizophrenia that characterizes American Christianity, says that people tend to be unaware that their Sunday worship service, from beginning to end, repudiates the culture that they daily uphold as their "way of life." Idols For Destruction page 254-255 as quoted in "The East and the West May Yet Meet"
