I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.
Exodus 20:2-3

No Other Gods

There are dozens of “little gods” in disguise in our lives, even if we are Christians, worshipping the one true God.

People’s opinions, our money, appearance, family, friends or entertainment can become other gods we put before God. The devil seeks to deceive us by trying to make us believe that having other gods is limited to worship of another deity instead of God.

God would not see fit to warn us about putting other gods before Him if there were no other gods to be worried about. Nor would He tell us, as He does in Deuteronomy 10:17, that He is the “God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome….”

Who or what is receiving the glory in your life today? Who or what is most important to you, and who or what do you seek to please above all else? If you cannot answer “God” to all of these, then I challenge you to sort through your priorities.

Place Him at the centre of your life and bring yourself back into alignment with this blessed commandment.

God Bless

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

    Iam a Christian and an Ex-Buddhist, I learn that Buddha is the Idol (False God) and I must stay away from Buddhism and any False Religions who do not believe in Jesus Christ. God had warned me that I must not have any Idols in my life. In Burma ( Myanmar), Burmese Government had sent soldiers to persecute Christians,They also had killed Christians and They had destroyed many Churches and christian homes. This had forced Christians to leave Burma. Also They forced Burmese Christians to become Buddhists. Now, I had learnt the true story abou’t the Buddhist Monk in Burma who had a near death experiance, When he had died, he walked in the wilderness and he went across the river, and on the other side of the river is the Lake of fire, it is the place of hell. When he went to the place of hell, he had met King Yama, King of Hell the Destroyer. Then King of hell showed him Buddha and Buddhist monks including Burmese Leader are in hell, then he asked to King Yama, Why they are in hell? Then King of hell answered ” They are in hell because they don’t believe in Jesus Christ”. Then after this He went to meet Angels in Heaven. He had been told that if anyone do not believe in Jesus Christ will go to hell. Now, when he was brought back to life, He decided that he to became a Christian and he to reject Buddhism. People where very surprised at him. But he will risk to be put in prison in Burma. In this case, not all Christians agree with his death Testimony, even some certain Pastors do not believe in his Testimony. But these things I tell you are only very short brief story, because I cannot give you all the details. I realised that Buddha is the Idol and Buddha don’t believe in God, Buddha is also a False Teacher. The Bible is the book that I should never throw it away. I know I had sinned against God and I should repent. It is better for me to believe in Jesus Christ and not anyone else. I have to be very careful with what to believe. It is up to you to decide to accept or not to accept this Testimony that I had shared with you. We shall have faith in Christ Jesus, our Lord.
