Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Me

Having delivered several introductory messages to the Ten Commandments, this message is the first in my exposition of the First Commandment.  It seeks to explain the First Commandment in the context of its times, and present the God of the Bible in contrast to the gods of heathendom.  Primarily, this sermon emphasizes the biblical doctrine of monotheism, and shows that this was not only a peculiarity of Israel in ancient times, but that it was also a vital ingredient of the gospel carried by the apostles into all the world.
