One True God
In the beginning, human beings were made to (1) worship and serve God, and then (2) to rule over all created things in God’s name (Gen.1:26–28). Instead, we fell into sin. When Paul sums up the fall of humanity into sin, he does so by describing it in terms of idolatry. He says we refused to give God glory and instead chose certain parts of creation to glorify in his stead. In short, we reversed the originally intended order. The Ten Commandments’ first two and most fundamental laws are a call back to the order of creation - a call to worship creator God as the supreme authority in your life.
