"Thou shalt have no other gods before me." For There are many "Idol gods" In this modern day world" we love to worship them and give them our time

Many, Love this World and the things it can offer, Many bow down and worship things and do not know that we are worshiping, because the enemy has blinded our eyes, that we may not see. And of the temporary, temporal trinkets, the sparkle of "fool's gold".


New American Standard 1977
“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?’

(Luke 16}.
22And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and that he was carried away by the angels into Abraham's bosom: and the rich man also died, and was buried. 23And in Hades he lifted up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

For I know many have not Read "Deuteronomy" chapter 5 in the Bible, concerning what God had said to "Israel".

Deuteronomy means, The Second giving of The Law. [retelling] a copy, reminding.


3It was not with our ancestors a that the Lord made this covenant, but with us, with all of us who are alive here today. 4The Lord spoke to you face to face out of the fire on the mountain. 5(At that time I stood between the Lord and you to declare to you the word of the Lord, because you were afraid of the fire and did not go up the mountain.) And he [God] said:

6“I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.
7“You shall have no other gods before b me.
8“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 9You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 10but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.
11“You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.
12“Observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy, as the Lord your God has commanded you. 13Six days you shall labor and do all your work, 14but the seventh day is a sabbath to the Lord your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your male or female servant, nor your ox, your donkey or any of your animals, nor any foreigner residing in your towns, so that your male and female servants may rest, as you do. 15Remember that you were slaves in Egypt and that the Lord your God brought you out of there with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm. Therefore the Lord your God has commanded you to observe the Sabbath day.
16Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live long and that it may go well with you in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
17“You shall not murder.
18“You shall not commit adultery.
19“You shall not steal.
20“You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.
21“You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife. You shall not set your desire on your neighbor’s house or land, his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”
22These are the commandments the Lord proclaimed in a loud voice to your whole assembly there on the mountain from out of the fire, the cloud and the deep darkness; and he added nothing more. Then he wrote them on two stone tablets and gave them to me.

23When you heard the voice out of the darkness, while the mountain was ablaze with fire, all the leaders of your tribes and your elders came to me. 24And you said, “The Lord our God has shown us his glory and his majesty, and we have heard his voice from the fire. Today we have seen that a person can live even if God speaks with them. 25But now, why should we die? This great fire will consume us, and we will die if we hear the voice of the Lord our God any longer. 26For what mortal has ever heard the voice of the living God speaking out of fire, as we have, and survived? 27Go near and listen to all that the Lord our God says. Then tell us whatever the Lord our God tells you. We will listen and obey.”

28The Lord heard you when you spoke to me, and the Lord said to me, “I have heard what this people said to you. Everything they said was good. 29Oh, that their hearts would be inclined to fear me and keep all my commands always, so that it might go well with them and their children forever!

Now we know we are not under the LAW that was given unto the "12 Tribes of Israel" and by keeping the Law does not saved anyone. But once we are saved. are we not to "Honor" what pleases GOD the Father The Moral LAWs of God given to "Israel".

Or which one of The 10 we can throw out and not Honor?

Please list., that we all maybe edify, which one to keep and the ones we can throw away and not honor. I am not referring to "The Ceremonials Laws" that GOD gave "israel". But The "Ten Commandments" The Moral Law"

idol can be and is usually a obsession

idol is something we constantly thing about more then God

idol is something we spend all our free time on

idol is something we spend all our money on

these are real life examples I have had to put in place as safe guards in case I ever fall into the trap. I have all my life been a person with obsessions hobbies, until I got born again. But I still have to make sure my focus is wear it belongs.

People seems to have the wrong image of a idol,, it seems people think idol,, and they think of a golden cafe that you bow down to to. Modern day idol are far more in number then the idols of the OT,,,

And a Idol can be a person. A man or woman.

(Romans 1).
American King James Version
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

American Standard Version
for that they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

Greetings,
The 10 commandments are very important I agree. However isn't it just as important to come into the NT and do what Jesus commanded? And no new commandment did He give, but if you can do the first two; love God first, and love your neighbor as yourself...
Then there is no fear of breaking any of God's law.

Quite simple, and yet difficult for the majority.
God bless

Depends upon what kind of dress she is wearing, and the way she walks. Guarantee there will not be any fear, Remember "ADAM was perfect" and was not "deceived". We still have a lot Eve's walking around here. Just pray to God , she doesn't cross your path, and they come in all Ages. Ask Sarah. "He that thinketh he standeth take heed less he falls" I stay in the house:eyes:

David said, when he was young: "Lord you kept my foot from slipping" but when he got older, he wrote: "Lord, when My Foot Slipped, your Love substain me"

So I have learn: "Lord, keep my foot out of slippery places". Now days that devil do not care how old you are, "he is running around like a roaring Lion seeking whom he may devour" and the more vintage the meat, the sweeter it taste.

It is to late in the game to run around with a guilty conscious. The grestest weapon the devil can attack you with is the TRUTH! and He is not taking any prisoners. He will HIt you so quick with one of those 10 Commandments if you break one. He will knock that Helmet of Salvation off you head. You will be walking around ASKING PEOPLE TO PRAY FOR YOU! GO AHEAD BREAK ONE. YOU WILL BE TELLING PEOPLE You are having "Mental Problems" "PTSD".

"Do not put your Lord God to the test" I'm to old for that! and you do not have warn me, I warn myself! When you teach another do you not teach yourself?:eyes:

Always...
It goes to the messenger outward.
Sounds as though you were trying to personally attack me. Lol, it didn't work.
Anytime we're throwing around "you, you" and try eliminate ourselves from the matter, it comes across as a personal attack.
Maybe something to work on "you"rself. Lol
God bless

Always remember no matter what, there is only One Body in Christ [only One Congregation] There are many Churches, your church, my church, their church, and churches goes on and on and on. But Jesus said: "Upon T"HIS ROCK" referring to himself I Will BUILD MY Congregation" there is only one.
If we think we are separated from another person in Christ, Then one of us is not in the BODY. So i might not be in the body of Christ. TAke notice here: I said I might not be in the body of Christ. Language can be a dangerous thing, that can start great wars and cause a many of deaths. Words causes wars.

So sorry for being mis=represented. and for myself I never call myself a christian and for I am not one. So i am not to be look at as one. I do know what i am. So do not look at me as one and to act like one. Honestly. I would be a liar if I said I was one. So i do make many mistakes. theological ones and common ones and neither am I "ChristLike". So i will disappoint you, I will disappoint myself. So let this be known, I speak concerning the things of GOD in fear. And the grestest in that fear is not doing as I am commanded, for over 40 plus years but i prefer to remain quiet, but the fire still burns HOT! Even in my dreams,and when I awakens in the middle of the night or earlier in the Morning I have arrived to the destination. At 6 o'clock in the morning I am on fire! 12 midnight I am on fire! I have told my wife something is not right about me. No one has no business being on Fire the way i am. Many of Friends has told me. I want some of that you got But not that much!! and we laugh and laugh. I have suffer more than them.

See i can go on and on and on and hit not a dry spot. when i start talking about GOD! I would put my whole house to sleep the dog too! Kids would not want to go to bed. I would start talking about GOD, by 9 0'clock the wife, the dog, the kids, knock out! would not wake up until the next morning! LOL!
this is not attack on no one but myself. I know myself. I come short must likely i have read the New testament over a 1000 times most likely in different versions, I cannot count how many times the OT. and every night for i do not knowhow many times i have played books of the bible before it was on internet. when we was using cassette tapes. and still do every night now by internet.

Shalom PS my grammer is not great, and I am to poor to have a "editor" like the writters do. and my wife will not edit for me. LOL and she is good at it.

that is enough. thanks for listening. I told you i was not perfect. talk to much.

Not a Christian , I like that, as this is my thinking too. The christian label is no longer relevant sadly, and hasnt been for over a thousand years. I call myself an ascetic or an Adamite. Far better value and its puts a burden on me to behave and be a certain individual with no loyalty to this world, nor any worldy conditioning to guide or tempt me. Stripped bare physically, mentally and spiritually. And believe me, the Lord is all for it. For the past two years now I have been soley dedicated to the Lord, building the relationship and learning via the Holy Spirit and scripture. I am certainly not the person I was 3 years ago.
