Dear Blog Reader,
I often had questions about God.
I knew that Religious Denominations have lists of "do’s and don’t do's", and I knew there were Doctrines that told me what to believe - and I knew my knowledge was based on my life's circumstances, interactions, and perspectives - and I knew my understanding might be clouded by them.
But I wanted to go beyond the opinions of others. I wanted to go to the source: the Bible itself. I wanted to know what God put in that book, and how it relates to me and to my life today. I wanted to know God.
Some might find the Bible - The Scriptures - a bit difficult to interpret. The 'easy to read' format of IDEOLATRY helps to make the Bible easier to understand. I hope IDEOLATRY will help to unlock some of its mysteries for you. My goal is to help you understand the Nature and Character of God.
Within the pages of IDEOLATRY is the promise that you will understand God in new ways. With this knowledge you will gain a deeper intimacy with God, His purpose for your life, and allow you to walk in the power of God’s Truth.

IDEOLATRY takes the reader on a journey of Self-discovery, Biblical discovery and Spiritual discovery with the goal of understanding the Character of God as revealed in His own word, the Bible. IDEOLATRY is organized in three basic elements. Each module leads the reader to a deeper understanding of the common thread that runs throughout the Bible.
Your perspectives can define your view of God, but how do the circumstances, events, and situations in your life shape the way that you interpret what you read in the Bible?
Can you overcome influences that may distort your view of God and the Bible. Can you allow the Holy Spirit to reveal God’s Truth to you.
The influence of history is essential. Examine God’s Covenant with mankind — Biblical successes and failures in the Old Testament — Actions and motivations that reveal responsibility for what happened when things went wrong.
Discover the difference between the dogma of religious traditions and the Truth of God.
What is the Wrath of God — How does it relate to what Christ did for you? — Did God change His mind between the Old and New Testaments?
IDEOLATRY helps to reveal God's common thread that runs throughout the Bible — His interaction with you and the many scriptures that prove that God’s True Character and Nature is not consistent with many religious traditions. FIRST AND FOREMOST: Ideolatry shines a light on the fact that God Loves You!
