This week we are starting our new series American Idols! And no, this doesn’t involve Simon Cowell, J Lo, Ryan Seacrest or any of the American Idol wannabes. However, we are going to talk about some of the idols that we have created in America, and the strongholds that they have created in our lives, even as Christians.

What is an idol? An idol is simply a false god. That person or that thing that you think fills you, completes you, provides for you, makes you happy, etc. It is anything that puts a barrier between you and the one true source, which is God. How do you know if something is an idol in your life? That person or thing that you can’t let go of, that you refuse to give up, that you rely on outside of God, etc. Those things are idols. It can be people, substances, feelings, material things…whatever. We use these things to fill voids that only God can fill, and that He wants to fill.

In this first episode we are going to talk about the idol of FAME. Why do people want to be famous? Do we really need to be famous to fulfill God's purpose for our lives? What are some of the downfalls of being famous? Let's see what God's Word has to say about it
