      Some argue that passages which speak of God hardening human hearts (Jos ; Ex ; ; Rom ) demonstrate that God controls everything, including people resistant to this declared intentions. He hardens whomever he wills, they argue. He could just as easily have softened their hearts, but for his own sovereign reasons he chose not.   Now, idolatry is one of the biggies. It is probably the biggest thing that breaks the heart of God. It is the same to God as it is to a married person that has an unfaithful spouse. This is precisely what God was trying to get across to His children. Idolatry breaks His heart and wounds Him tremendously. So we asked ourselves the tough question.

      Thus, it's important that our heart is in right standing with God and protected from the hardening caused by sin. God's Word warns us against the hardening of the heart, which causes us to become insensitive to the move of God and show compassion for others. God promises to give us a "heart of flesh" when His Holy Spirit comes into us. Thank You my brother. Sin in general is idolatry. When we sin after the truth is made known to us we just invite the devil(the power of idols or the idol) to live Inside of us and possess us. When we confess, and abandon our sins, we are cleansed and the ‘idol’ goes out of us and the Spirit of God must take the place.

    One of the more difficult biblical themes to understand is that of God hardening the hearts and minds of certain people. The most memorable case is that of Pharaoh. Before sending Moses to him, God said that He would “harden Pharaoh’s heart” (Ex ). There are other instances in which biblical texts speak of God hardening the hearts of sinners, even from among His own people.   A hardened heart represents an inflexible person, a person who thinks they know best and are unwilling to receive direction. Therefore, a hardened heart is a disobedient heart. A hardened heart also represents an insensitive person, a person who is either unaware of the suffering of others or unwilling to empathize with them.

First, G. Beale, in his full work on the “idolaters become like idols” theme (We Become What We Worship: A Biblical Theology of Idolatry [Downers Grove: InterVarsity, ]) refers to the present volume and notes that one cannot find in the Bible the image of an idolater's heart.

And he said, “Go, and say to this people: “‘Keep on hearing, but do not understand; keep on seeing, but do not perceive.’ Make the heart of this people dull, and their ears heavy, and blind their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn and be healed.”.

But when Pharaoh saw that there was relief, he hardened his heart and did not listen to them, as the Lord had said. Then the Lord said to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘Stretch out your staff and strike the dust of the earth, that it may become gnats through all the land of Egypt.’” They did so; and Aaron stretched out his hand with his staff, and struck the dust of the earth, and there were.

Recently someone asked a great question about God hardening people’s hearts in Scripture. Fourteen times in Scripture a statement is made that God hardens someone’s heart (15 if we count John where the “He” may be read as a reference to God or perhaps to Isaiah –see Isaiah ). Nine of those times are in relation to Pharaoh.
