You know what gets me angry? When you are talking with a, “liberal Christian” and they accuse you of idolatry when you quote the Bible to them in opposition of their beliefs. They actually accuse me of worshiping the Bible. How idiotic and offensive is that!? I used to respond by trying to explain. I thought perhaps they don’t understand. I quote the Bible not because I worship it, but because it is the Word of God. It is the mind of Christ, that we may know Him and His will for us, but that isn’t the case.
They have heard that before and reject it to some degree. It is their way of saying, anyone who loves righteousness more than approving of all the sexual perversion people want to engage in is not really a Christian. They believe in whatever they feel like. They have a very low view of scripture, because they have a low view of the God whose Word it is. It is frankly disgusting, and I’m tired of liberals using it as a defense/red herring to get me off track.
Instead of continuing on in the direction of correction, I used to get derailed and attempt to defend my belief in God and His Word as not being idolatrous, but no longer. When liberals make that accusation now, just respond with, “You sir/ma’am are the idolater! You have made for yourself another God. You worship not the one true and living God, but rather a perverted god who would embrace all kinds of sin and approve of it. You worship and unjust god who wants you to feel good now, but knows you will spend eternity in hell with him having the wrath of God poured out on you for all eternity! Repent and believe the true gospel of Christ!
