Message from Jim Callahan, High School Teacher

“You shall have no other gods before me” (Ex 20:3). The natural response to this commandment by sinners is to worship and serve the creature rather than the creator who is blessed forever amen (Rom 1:25). Hence, our society is full of idols - man made substitutes for the real God. This is nothing new. These God substitutes come in many different sizes, shapes, colors and disguises. If we are to know and acknowledge the living and true God in all areas of our lives as commanded, then we must ever be a work seeking to identify the idols of our society. This is necessary so that they do not sneak their way into our lives. As we approach that great and awesome first Tuesday in November (after the first Monday), I fear that some in our land will see the newly elected President of the United States as our “god". Some will regard him as our refuge, our strength and our deliverer. Regardless of who is elected this November, let no one be deceived as to the true status of our President. He is just a man who can do nothing apart from the goodness and mercy of the Lord of heaven and earth. Christians must remind themselves and all others that “the Lord is God, there is no other besides him” (Deut 4:35).
