gods at war

Why did God begin the Ten Commandments with “You shall have no other gods before me”? Is that the most tempting or worst sin? In the Old Testament idolatry is by far the most commonly mentioned sin. Is this commandment still relevant to our 21st Century culture? Who worships idols anymore besides a few ignorant, primitive tribes? What if idols are not all made of wood or stone? In the New Testament Jesus said the first and greatest commandment is to love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. There are lots of things that compete with our love for God--career, money, entertainment, even family and friends. What if “other gods” and “idols” mean anything that competes with our worship and love of the true God? In this series we will discover that worshipping other gods is actually the root of all sin. On some level we all struggle with “idol” worship. This series will identify some of the most common false gods and provide biblical solutions for resisting the temptation to worship them.
