Self-Love: Idolatry for the Modern Man and Woman

Adam Eve Temptation“Our modern idolatry in Christianity consists in

self-love,

ambition,

worldly pleasures,

gluttony and

love of gain,

adultery.

It is this that has completely turned away our eyes and hearts from God and the heavenly country, and has nailed us to the earth. It is this that has uprooted brotherly love, and has set us against on another. Woe! woe! unto us!” (Saint John of Kronstadt, My Life in Christ, p 164)
