THE FIRST COMMANDMENT

 “And God spake all these words, saying, I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.  Thou shalt have NO OTHER GODS before me.”   (Exodus 20:1-3)   (Emphasis mine) 

God had redeemed His people Israel from bondage in Egypt.  This is GRACE (undeserved favor).  The proper response to grace is the keeping of the law.  One God means one law -- “no other gods before me.”  

New Testament Christians are not exempt from this commandment.  We have been redeemed -- from the bondage of sin.  We should keep the law.  We should have no other gods before God.   

Not money, not pleasure, not family, not tradition, not fame, not power.  Not Mary, not the Pope, not Allah, not Buddha, not Shiva, not Satan.  Just the LORD God of the Bible.   

Much modern Bible preaching and teaching is “antinomian” (anti-law).  But lawless Christianity is a contradiction in terms.  It is anti-Christian.  “Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.” (Romans 3:31)   

LAW AND RELIGION 

Law in any culture is religious.  For example, humanism locates law in the people, as they find expression in the state, the god of the system.  Mao Tse-Tung said, “Our God is none other than the masses of the Chinese people.”   

Yes, even atheistic communism is religious.  In every culture, the source of law is the god of that society.  Any change of law is an explicit or implicit change in religion.   

For example, the legal revolution in America indicates a shift from Biblical law to humanism.  Witness the legalization of abortion, homosexuality, and witchcraft. 

There is zero tolerance in any law system for another religion.  Tolerance is a method used to introduce a new law system -- as a prelude to a new intolerance.   

Thus, the new god -- the humanistic state, will eventually persecute Christians and Jews who hold to Biblical law.  In every society, law discriminates.

It defines who are the legitimate and who are the illegitimate members of that society.  To preach that homosexuality is sin (Leviticus 18:22) is now a “hate crime” in America.  The Bible-believing preacher is now the criminal 

LAW AND EDUCATION  

“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: And thou shalt LOVE the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.  And these words, which I COMMAND thee this day, shall be in thine heart: 

And thou shalt TEACH them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”   (Deuteronomy 6:4-7)   (Emphasis mine) 

The “Shema Israel requires education in the Law of God.  This is love and worship of the one true God.  Anything other than a Biblically grounded education is an act of apostasy for a believer.   

It means having another god, and bowing down to him, to learn from him.  To turn our children over to the state controlled public schools is to surrender them to the enemy.   

The public schools have thrown out Biblical Law in favor of humanism.  They teach evolution instead of Creation and situation ethics instead of the Ten Commandments. 

Sex education, taught without the necessity of the marriage bond, is just another name for teaching whoredom.  Abortion is taught as a “woman's choice” rather than murder.  Homosexuality is taught as an “alternate lifestyle” rather than an abomination to God. 

Bible reading, prayer, and even the mention of the Lord Jesus Christ, during class time, are now outlawed in most public schools.  Yet common schools were originally established by Calvinistic Christians as a means for children to learn to read the Bible. 

There has been a shift in loyalty -- a shift in law -- a shift from the LORD God of the Bible to the god of humanism -- the state.  Western society now bows before another god.  Do you?

Tulip Gems is a Calvinistic Baptist web site that honors Jesus Christ and provides a free Hyperinflation Survival Guide.  We offer free Bible Articles on several subjects, including Bible Nutrition , Creation Science versus Evolution Passover , The Great Commission and Tulip Calvinism

Which Bible can we trust? Which Bible is the most accurate? Why KJV only? Read our Which Bible series of articles for answers from both Scripture and history (including a Rebuttal of James White's book, The King James Only Controversy).

We also offer a well-documented Vietnam Veteran Story that illustrates the mercy of God.  The Vietnam Veteran Story, found on our Combat Vet page, comes from published accounts of Vietnam Veterans experiences, as well as this Vietnam Veterans experiences, told first hand.  

Concerned about inflation leading to hyperinflation? Some say buy silver and gold coins. Others say it is evil to own silver and gold coins. What does the Bible teach us? Tulip Gems offers an Hyperinflation Survival Guide which provides a Biblical basis for ownership of silver and gold coins as an hedge against the horrors of hyperinflation.  Links to online vendors are also provided. 

Will out of control government spending lead to hyperinflation, and possibly to a new world currency? Will a new world currency lead to the Mark of the Beast (666)? Will the Rapture occur before the Tribulation (Pre-Tribulational Rapture) or will the Rapture occur after the Tribulation (Post-Tribulational Rapture)? For Biblical answers, visit our
Mark of the Beast Explained page.

Will America come under nuclear attack? What does the Bible say? For reliable information on what to do in a nuclear attack, read our
Survive Nuclear Attack page. While many Calvinists shy away from Bible prophecy, we don't. For those who want Biblical guidance about the future, check out our Hyperinflation Survival Guide, Mark of the Beast Explained and Survive Nuclear Attack pages. Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke often about the events leading up to His Second Coming. Where our Good Shepherd leads, we may safely follow.

Who is Jesus Christ? Why KJV only? Why Home School your children? Jesus Christ is Lord and the KJV Bible is the Preserved Word of God in English.  Finally, Scripture gives us compelling reasons to Home School our children. One very important reason is to lead them to Our Passover Lamb. We recommend Christ-centered Home Schooling Curriculum.
