While the concept of "idolatry" is often seen as either anachronistic or as an unsophisticated way to critique wealth, it holds great potential for seeing America's historic sins in new ways. The Spirit is stirring Christian people across the country to take up the call to speak hard truth about injustices we have learned to ignore. It's time for us, as white people and followers of Christ, to get serious about the toxic idolatry of white supremacy in our nation's history and present. In this series, we explore the functions of idols in the life of the Hebrew people and how those functions are replicated by a white racial identity in our own time. We listen to the prophets of old, applying their wisdom to our current context of idolatrous worship in the name of becoming and remaining "white".
