Dear Friends of COLLIN CREEK CHURCH,

We become what we worship. Consider the following news item about the cult-like appeal of anorexia: They call her “Ana.” She is a role model to some, a goddess to others—the subject of drawings, prayers, and even a creed. She tells them what to eat and mocks them when they don’t lose weight. Ana is a reference to anorexia, the potentially fatal eating disorder.

“People pray to Ana to make them skinny,” says Sara, a 17-year-old in Columbus, Ohio, who was an avid organizer of Ana followers until she recently entered treatment for her eating disorder. “I guess I was attention-starved,” she now says of her motivation. “I really liked being the girl that everyone looked up to, and the one they saw as their ‘thinspiration.’ But then I realized I was helping girls kill themselves.”

(Martha Irvine, “Cult-Like Appeal of ‘Ana’ Attracts Anorexics,” Associated Press -05.30.05)

Idols are still around and being worshiped today. Objects, body image, social media, bank accounts and many other things; have become a primary source of happiness for our culture.  Without these, life is not worth living.  This is the very definition of an idol.  Yet we see in Exodus 7-11, 10 plagues that demonstrate the Lord Jesus Christ is the one true God.  Worshipping anything other than Jesus only leads to an empty life (See Solomon’s book of Ecclesiastes in the Old Testament of the Bible).

Learn more in Exodus 8:20-9:12 and by listening: http://collincreekfwbc.podbean.com/.  Study Guide: Exodus 8c20-9c12 (plagues 4-6)(Study Guide).   And join us next Sunday, July 8 for: Exodus 9:13-10:29.

Your Servant,
