Sermon – “Put Away Other Gods” – Garner Ted Armstrong Sermon, June 12, 1999

Joshua 24:14
14Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.

Romans 6:16
“16Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?”

Which gods do you obey, the true God – the Creator of all things, or one or more of the false gods of this world? Even Christians , those professing Christ can find themselves obeying, even worshipping false gods.

2 Corinthians 11:13 -15
“13For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.”

Yes, Satan has his ministers and not necessarily in the religions we think of as pagan. Paul was speaking of a false christianity. A counterfeit religion bearing the name of Christ but in every respect pagan to the core. As Christ Himself said, ” 5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many”. (Matt. 24:5)
