What Really Holds Back Revival and Restoration

I thank God for my country but I absolutely hate the false religion and idolatry of nationalism. Because ultimately anything that you worship – you will never really be able to call it to repentance – whether it be your country, culture, musical stars, or religious leaders. Idolatry holds back revival and restoration.

This is a clue to why the American Church has not successfully called itself or this nation to repentance – idolatry. Anytime you feel the need to explain away sin by “balancing it out” with the good that’s been done it shows self-justification, self-righteousness and the spiritual blindness of idolatry.
