I first came across Brad Bigney’s material at a biblical counseling conference in Bozeman, Montana. Brad had written a book on breaking free from idolatry and I found his material super helpful. Today, I’m excited to have him on the Christian Habits Podcast. Here are a few of the topics we’ll be discussing:
Topics We Talked About on the Podcast
- What is idolatry?
- Do you have idols?
- How do you know what your idols are?
- What are three questions you can ask to determine whether or not something is an idol?
- How does idolatry affect your relationships and marriage?
- How do you break free from idolatry?
- How do you get to the point where you’re willing to let things go?
Brad is an ordained minister with the Evangelical Free Church of America, and is a graduate of Columbia Biblical Seminary, with his Master of Divinity. He’s a certified biblical counselor with ACBC (Assoc. of Certified Biblical Counselors), author of the book Gospel Treason: Betraying the Gospel with Hidden Idols, as well as a national conference speaker.
