Loving the Lord God is described here as a singular devotion to one specific singular God. All paths do not lead to God, they lead to adulterated idolatry which the one God will in no way tolerate. This idolatry seems to be the norm and a nearly irresistible force that must be combated individually and collectively daily.
Reprobate Mind - Many academics critics would see this as a harsh immoral passage. Muslims and others who see Judeo-Christian religions as soft and emasculated, say that this and other passages are where we've defiled God's name. Would God have said this to Israel had he not intended their compliance at that time? Having not followed through on this, history would record Israel as constantly being pulled away and apart just as promised. Our minds today still seek to rationalize this out. Tolerance versus its effect on the course of events, obedience and it's effect on public perception.
