[CF Devotionals] 2009-07-07 - No Other Gods Before Me

False gods Series, Introduction

Exo 20:3 (The Message) No other gods, only me.

In the 21st century, we may not think we have "false gods" or idols. After all, we don't bow down to statues; we are far too sophisticated to do that. We have known for several centuries, that the Sun and other celestial bodies are not "gods" whom we should worship, and that mythology is just that, a myth. But one of the definitions of “worship” in Merriam-Webster's Online Dictionary is: "extravagant respect or admiration for or devotion to an object of esteem <worship of the dollar>."

In our own modern and sophisticated era, we certainly have our own forms of “gods” that are worshipped, and in the next couple weeks, we'll take a look at what the Bible has to say about some of them.
