Exodus 20:1-3 “And God spoke all these words: 2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. 3 “You shall have no other gods before me.”

I. A Father’s Love
-The many gods of Egypt
-The mind of a slave
-The oral tradition of Elohim
-The understanding of “Loyalty”
Deuteronomy 4:23-24 “Be careful not to forget the covenant of the Lord your God that he made with you; do not make for yourselves an idol in the form of anything the Lord your God has forbidden. 24 For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.“

II. Rules or Relationships
-Discipline of the Father vs. Punishment of the Father
Hebrews 12:7-11 vs10 “They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness.”

III. Return to the Mountain
Exodus 20:18 “When the people saw the thunder and lightning and heard the trumpet and saw the mountain in smoke, they trembled with fear. They stayed at a distance”
