“Idol worship” is the topic of this “Skermon” (skit/sermon). Worship of pleasure, possessions, and status set the stage for the pastor to present a 3-part sermon; one part after each vignette illustrating 1John 2:16,17: the “lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life.”

This “Skermon” (skit/sermon) about steering clear of the world’s fleeting pleasures, focuses on three kinds of idol worship, listed in 1John 2:16,17. Each one is traced back to its roots in Satans temptation in the Garden of Eden (Gen. 3:6).
First, the lust of the flesh, is traced back to the fruit being “good for food. In a modern parallel, a woman over indulges herself at the spa, “idolizing” her body. Second, the lust of the eyes, is traced back to the fruit being pleasing to the eye. In a modern parallel, a man buys a car he cannot afford; “idolizing” his stuff. Third, the boastful pride of life, is traced back the fruit being desirable for gaining wisdom. In a modern parallel, a man sacrifices his relationship with his wife to climb the corporate ladder, “idolizing” his image. The pastor comments on “idol worship” after each vignette.
