What is the first of the ten commandments, or the decalogue? I know, we’re not there yet in Exodus, but we’re on a hiatus from Exodus for thanksgiving and Advent. So, what is the first of the ten commandments? You shall have no other God’s before me. The Israelites had just come from 430 years of experience of bondage under the plethora of gods of the Egyptians, and God commanded them not to go back to those god’s, the god’s of the nations of the promised land, or any other-ever. When we don’t practice thanksgiving, we become idolaters
