The gods Pt. 4: The First Commandment

We’ve discussed that there are many different gods according to the Bible. We’ve even discussed what these gods could be and what they most certainly are not. So, the question is, if they are gods, then can we worship them? What if we don’t put them above God? Doesn’t the First Commandment allow the worship of other gods as long as we worship the LORD above all? Join ArieRashelle as she searches through Scripture for the answers to these questions and more in her video, The gods Pt. 4: The First Commandment.

The gods Pt. 4: The First Commandment

What Does The First Commandment Say?

You shall have no other gods before me.

Exodus 20:3

You shall have no other gods before me.

Deuteronomy 5:7

You Can’t Serve More Than One Master

24 No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and Mammon.

Matthew 6:24

16 Do you not know that if you present yourselves to anyone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness?

Romans 6:16

19 What do I imply then? That food offered to idols is anything, or that an idol is anything? 20 No, I imply that what pagans sacrifice they offer to demons and not to God. I do not want you to be participants with demons. 21 You cannot drink the cup of the LORD and the cup of demons. You cannot partake of the table of the LORD and the table of demons. 22 Shall we provoke the LORD to jealousy? Are we stronger than He?

1 Corinthians 10:19-22

14 Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15 What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God;

2 Corinthians 6:14-16

There Is Only One God Deserving of Worship

For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.

1 Timothy 2:5-6

13 You shall tear down their altars and break their pillars and cut down their Asherim 14 (for you shall worship no other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God), 15 lest you make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land, and when they whore after their gods and sacrifice to their gods and you are invited, you eat of his sacrifice, 16 and you take of their daughters for your sons, and their daughters whore after their gods and make your sons whore after their gods.

Exodus 34:13-16
