One of the most basic commands of God is not to have an idol
before Him.  The truth is idolatry is deceptive. Most of us would
say God is #1 in our life. Based on your answers is this true?

How often was one of your answers to the questions above God
or tied to your Christian Faith? Be careful with rationalization
which really is deception. Yes it is good to love our spouse,
children, family because God commands us to love. Yes it is
OK to be devastated by the loss of a child or marriage but what
should devastate us the most?

The test is designed to determine the priority in your life. Your
priority often will show you if you have an idol in your life. Do
you see a pattern in your answers? God should be our obvious
number one. The test opened my eyes in some areas my hope
is it did the same for you. I wonder if we take God for granted?
I think I do at times too. 

If I had stated at the top it was a test about IDOLATRY would
your answers have been different? If so why?
