Snakes in the Temple Summary

Snakes in the Temple: Unmasking Idolatry in Today's Church and Pointing the Way to Spiritual Breakthrough by David Orton

"Snakes in the Temple" casts a biblical vision of the church's kingdom-revival future and addresses the hindrances to its fulfillment. This book asks some penetrating questions about the current state of the western Church. Why, for example, despite our best efforts at church growth, is the Western church not seeing the same breakthroughs as the Third World? We import to our cities the latest apostles of city reaching, leadership, and multiplication, but within a short while of implementation, their strategies seem to stall. Why is this? It is time for the western Church to do some serious soul searching. The author, pursuing these very questions, traces the roots of the problem to a hidden idolatry in the church. He argues that until this is resolved, we will not see the breakthroughs we long for in the West. No amount of new church "technology" will persuade God to do something that He Himself is resisting! The author contends that the Church has made idols of the goals of church growth and revival; it has idolised productivity and power, but must return to the simplicity of the Great Commandment.It is time to unmask all idolatry and issue a fresh call to the Church to engage in a heart-process with God to resolve it.
