1 And God spake all these words, saying,
2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
- Discovered after Isaac Newton's death, he interpreted this to clearly identify the Lord thy God as having brought thee out of the land of Egypt not being Jesus. For this reason Newton considered Trinitarianism as a violation of the first commandment.
- What other gods? We are constantly told that there is one god and this god is clearly telling us to not accept any other gods, at least not before him.
- In Exodus, God also hardened the heart of the pharaoh on several occasions prolonging their 'house of bondage' and having them chased unnecessarily.
In United States Law
- The 1st commandment is not a part of U.S. law or customs. Laws in the U.S. specifically state that any such requirement cannot be made into law.
