I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. You shall have no other gods before me.
In Eden Mankind was specified in terms of his relation to his Creator. Since the world environment is now compromised through sin, humanity can still experience its creator God, but only within a relationship of salvation. Men and women must needs access the infinite creative resources of God, as beings in need of deliverance. It can be well for us only as we approach God deeply conscious of his concern for our plight, and as we never forget what he has done to set us free. No other god is sufficient for us. No other god can meet our need.
