The heart of the biblical understanding of idolatry, argues Gregory Beale, is that we take on the characteristics of what we worship. Employing Isaiah 6 as his interpretive lens, Beale demonstrates that this understanding of idolatry permeates the whole canon, from Genesis to Revelation. Beale concludes with an application of the biblical notion of idolatry to the challenges of contemporary life.

G.K. Beale approaches the subject of idolatry beginning with Isaiah 6 and shows how when the children of Israel allowed idolatry to flourish they became unable to see and hear what the word of God through the prophets spoke to His children because they became hard hearted and like the idols they bowed down to both deaf and blind spiritually. They lost their spiritual discernment and became adulterous both spiritually and physically as well. GOD considers this betrayal. They were given space to repent and a remnant was saved the SEED promise was maintained. We become renewed and alive when we worship the true and living GOD Jehovah. Christians must remain faithful to HIM.
