Exodus 20:1-6 

CBC 1/27/13 
INTRO: DL Moody said, "You don't have to go to heathen lands today to find false gods.
America is full of them. Whatever you make most of is your god. Whatever you love more than God is your idol. 

And God spoke all these words, saying: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. “You shall have no other gods 
before Me. “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under 
the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God,
am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. (Exodus 20:1-6 NKJV)
To whom do you contribute your time, talent, & treasure?

sports god (how do u fill giant stadiums with people on the Lord's Day, Sunday & get them to buy 
expensive tickets, pay outrageous prices for food, endure uncomfortable seating,
navigate gigantic traffic jam & do it regularly? 
Simple: u indoctrinate them continually in childhood with sports & bait parents with exorbitant salaries for players and coaches & make sports a higher priority than God & 

god of recreation - 
Thrill of victory (discuss that 2nite) 
Carry our stress instead of casting our care on God

god of fashion - more concerned what people will think of them by the way they look 
than what God thinks of them. 
Remember, God sees our heart

The better deal god 
If nothing becomes available that appeals to my flesh I'll try to make it to worship service

god of finance - 
Still worshipping the golden calf 
If a person sells their principles for money, aren't they making money their god? 
If they trust finance to keep them from want & harm...

god of intellect & education 

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am 
become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. (1 Corinthians 13:1 KJV)

god of euphoria (sex, drugs, alcohol...) 
Everybody looking for a high 
2 ways to get one 
devils way & Gods way 

And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; (Ephesians 

5:18 KJV) 

god of government & power (Pharaoh)

Made ur family a god? 
(Turned Sunday or part of it into "family"day)

Put self on the throne, pride & ego...Lucifer did that..

These r not gods...they r demons seeking misplaced worship... 
From misguided worshippers! 
Really...ur a demon worshipper?

Can ur god...part the sea? 
Can ur god...bring water from a rock? 
Can ur god...reign fire down out of heaven? 
Can ur god...forgive u of ur sins? 
Can ur god...prepare a beautiful place of rest for u in eternity? 
Did ur god....DIE FOR YOU?

INV: And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord , choose you this day whom ye willserve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of theflood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house,
we will serve the Lord . (Joshua 24:15 KJV)
