In this episode we discuss a very non-exhaustive list of ways that modern man seeks a substitute to fill the God-sized hole in his heart, namely though consumerism, politics, fantasy, entertainment, and sports. Whether we’re making gods of our bellies (Philippians Chapter 3) or pursuing pseudo-intellectuals as our idols and role models, or worshiping the temple of the Holy Spirit instead of the Godhead who ought to be dwelling therein, man’s heart will never rest until it rests in God, no matter how strenuously we strive to the contrary.
