Deuteronomy 13:4 (KJV) 4 Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.
God – the One true God – He alone is God. He is to be followed, revered, honored, obeyed, and served.
I write this very humbly and in no way do I desire to hurt anyone. I’m taking the liberty to write the truth that may hurt, but my prayer is that it will liberate instead. There is only One true God, and we ought to have no other gods but Him. We ought to never be led by anyone or anything into worshiping anyone or anything else as God. We ought to be very careful and very discerning. A person may seem to be very godly; he or she may be very successful, powerful and influential; he or she may be someone we’ve learned so much from, owe so much from, love so much and respect so much, but if they lead us away from God, we ought to quickly turn away from their influence. Sometimes, it may call for us to separate from them. At times it may take the greater sacrifice of severing our relationships with them. But we’d rather pull away from them than pull away from God.
Our One and only true God, may we not fall into the deadly error of worshiping another god. – in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
