“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.” Mat 22:37&38
It all starts here. The most important thing we must do is to love God. The beginning of any sin requires the diminishing of one’s love of God.
Not to love God 1) Influences others the same way 2) exposes us to influences of influences against God 3) causes us to commit the greatest sin (not to love God).
