Q. 103 What is the first Commandment?

A. Thou shalt have no other Gods before me.

Q. 104 What does the Lord require in the first commandment?

A.  That I, not wanting to endanger my very salvation, avoid and shun all idolatry, magic, superstitious rites, and prayer to saints or to other creatures. That I sincerely acknowledge the only true God, trust him alone, look to him for every good thing humbly and patiently, love him, fear him, and honor him with all my heart.  In short, that I give up anything rather than go against his will in any way.
