We are living in a day and age where politically correct folks view the 10 Commandments of the Bible as being obsolete. It is very common for those in authority today, to be habitually breaking these commandments, and receiving no punishment whatsoever for their wrongdoings.
What is wrong with the 10 Commandments anyway? I mean, most people would rather be, told the truth, than be lied to. Most married couples prefer that their spouse remain faithful them, and when it comes to stealing, the majority of us do not want to be robbed.
We prefer that our neighbors tell the truth about us, and not make up false stories about our lives. In addition, what is wrong with honoring your father and mother?
We could go on and on through the Commandments, and most would agree that they are beneficial.
- Why the big ruckus over the 10 Commandments?
- Why take them off the walls of our schools, and government buildings?
Many would have you believe it all has to do with the separation of church and state. The real reason our society is trying so hard to rid themselves of the 10 Commandments, hearkens right back to the first and greatest Commandment.
When Jesus was asked which Commandment is the greatest, he replied:
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the great and foremost commandment.”
The real problem is right here, with the first Commandment. The first Commandment causes us to deal directly with God. Here, right at the beginning, we are, commanded to love God.
Many in today’s world simply refuse to believe God exists, therefore, any mention about Him, or His so called commandments, must be disregarded and tossed out.
If we are to believe these Commandments to have value, we must believe and practice the first Commandment too, and for an increasing number of Americans, that is going too far!
- What about you?
- Do you still believe in the 10 Commandments?
If you said yes, then how are you doing with the first one!
