Author: Dr.Rich Masek
Who is God and what is He up to? How does He operate, what does He want? Is God mad at me? Is He testing me or judging me? Does God allow bad things to happen? Does He change His mind? What is God's wrath and how does He act on it? What is Truth and who defines it?
The sophistication of today's technology might overwhelm you with a sense that all of the answers to questions about Life and your Life's Purpose are answered in the truth of science and technology.
For example, Einstein's Theory of Relativity helps us understand some of the mysteries of science and nature. In like manner, our Relative Perspectives are key elements to our understanding of the spiritual world around us. Ideolatry is placing the human intellect on a pedestal and worshiping its potential. It can severely diminish one's ability to be completely fulfilled. Personal Ideolatry can skew your Perspectives due to your Life Filters. Those Filters are created through your Observations and Experiences. These Relative Perspectives, built on our observations and experiences, also explain why we have different versions of truth. Our version of truth forms the foundation of our understanding of God and His Word. It influences our faith or lack thereof, and our relationship with God.
However, there is a Higher Truth, God’s Truth, that goes beyond what we observe and experience. Ideolatry leads us away from God’s Truth, and creates confusion about God. Ideolatry persuades us to place blame upon Him. It convinces us to believe that God is our problem as revealed in the common question, “Why did God let this happen?”
But, if God is not my problem, then who is?
This book will help you unlock some of these mysteries by discovering their answers in the Bible.

Praise for IDEOLATRY
“Every time I sit down and read it ... I learn something about myself, and about my God. It has been transformative in my life.”
Geoff Nicolaysen, Amazon Review
“Love the book for sure! Finding out so much and connecting the dots! Things about my own thinking I never thought about before.”
Carol Thomas, Amazon Review
"Dr. Masek has a unique ability to condense complex thoughts into an easily understood format. He has a gift...and a mission to help all of us understand our relationship to God in today's secular world. I hardily recommend this book as it will deepen your understanding of your purpose in life. It is well written and philosophically challenging."
Dr. Michael Miroue, San Diego, CA
“Those of us who wear glasses know that a warped or dirty lens can impair your vision. Wow, Dr. Masek ‘cleans the lenses’ in this book. Is our problem what we “know” about God from our circumstances and interactions with other people, or what we THINK we “know” about God and what we believe about what we think we “know” about God? That confusion is cleared away in the insightful, thought-provoking chapters in this book. For those seeking answers and insight, for those who think they already know the answers, this is well worth reading.”
Marie Van Curen, Amazon Review
"Your book is amazing. I have been empowered with your insights. It has increased my passion to read the Bible. I am more focused on filling my discussions with God's absolute truth. The book is clear and easy to follow. You are a great teacher and my family is blessed with the knowledge you are sharing in your book. Really! I enjoy how you methodically break down the factual meaning of scripture. Every chapter has been a really good read. Every recent discussion your material has greatly helped clarify who God really is. Very powerful! People really need to hear the truth about that to have a deeper relationship with Jesus. Appreciate you so much...!"
John Spieker, Ramona, CA
"Ideolatry has opened my eyes to the TRUE nature of God, His love mercy and grace. If you've ever thought God has brought calamity or difficulty in your life....whether you think you deserved it or not, you need to read this book! The first chapter in you'll be rethinking what you thought you believed. Ideolatry is about our Father who loves us....and if you're a parent, you can relate as you think about the love you have for your children. What I found in this book is that my Heavenly Father loves me just like I love my children."
Karen Bucher, Julian, CA, Amazon Review
“Grasp the True Character and Nature of Our God by Reading This Book! I have read the Bible multiple times, but for me it was so hard to grasp the BIG PICTURE of our God by my readings. Nothing I have ever read has put the information contained in the Bible into such a clear and concise fashion as IDEOLATRY has, allowing me to finally grasp the true character and nature of our God and deepen my understanding of God’s love for each and everyone one of us! I highly recommend you read this along with your daily reading of the Bible . . . believe me, you will thank me!”
Rohn Trieglaff, Amazon Review
“This is a very challenging book in a good way. It makes one rethink their theology and what the truth really is concerning God and what He has done for us and how He interacts with us. The book is instructive and teaches the truth of the Word with the Word, letting the Truth speak for itself. Dr. Masek simply points the reader to the Word. I particularly liked the diagram/description of how God separates us from sin as far as the east is from the west on page 338. IDEOLATRY clearly explains God’s role in our life and what our responsibility is, but also God’s plan of salvation through Jesus Christ. I am especially appreciative of the contents of the book but even the quality of the paper and printing add to the impressiveness of the book.”
Rhonda Stone, Amazon Review
“Dr. Masek is scholarly in his approach, outlining a highly intelligent and concise analysis. Christians will certainly appreciate this book, but as a non-Christians I also find a great deal to resource and inspire. There were multiple passages I revisited, but for me the most poignant was: “Fear opens the door for the manifestation of all sorts of problems in our own lives. Fear is in direct conflict with love and the opposite of faith.” I would recommend this book to those who appreciate a truly academic approach to theology, and to Christians who are interested in a greater understanding of the Bible and the truth behind its words.”
Jamie Michele - Five Star Reader's Favorite Review
"Dr Rich Masek shares his journey of faith in this beautiful and
well-written book, helping readers see the pitfalls that impede them from
welcoming the word of God into their lives with openness of spirit and utter
trust. Readers will learn to understand the nature of God by encountering Him
in His own Word as recorded in the Scriptures. They will understand God’s
ultimate plan for humanity and what He created us for. Ideolatry is a
compelling, highly instructive, and timely companion for those who want to
discover God and their purpose. The writing is confident, clear, and filled
with biblical references that give depth and substance to the author’s message.
I particularly enjoyed the fact that this author shares his personal experience
of faith with readers. In a world and at a time when we are bombarded with all
sorts of messages, there is the need to determine which voice we should listen
to and which one should be shunned. This book is the tool that will help
readers make that distinction in life. Inspiring and very educational!”
