St. John's Franklin Podcast

Kenny Benge preached a sermon entitled “A City Full of Idols” based on Acts 17:16-34 on May 28, 2011. Augustine’s insight—"You have created us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they find their rest in you."—is that we we are fundamentally creatures of desire, shaped by what we love.  In a fallen world and as fallen creatures, we often attach our desires to things that ultimately CANNOT deliver what we hope for.  For Augustine, that is the nature of idolatry—a disordered desire and trust in a created good.
