False witness tears down society by twisting or ignoring the truth and slandering the image of God that we all bear.
God declares "You shall have no other gods before Me." Jesus later defines that law by saying "Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul , mind and strength."
The law of God is the track on which your heart was meant to run. In following His law, we see part of who God is and why we are made in His image.
