Do Away With The Ten Commandments,…
The TimesFaily,… the Shoals areas local newspaper, has a poll today. Should displays of the Ten Commandments be allowed inside state schools and public buildings? As of right now 694 voted yes and 142 voted no. I’m thinking the 142 are either Democrats, atheists or general non believers. Bad thing is, they got it right. They choose the correct answer, albeit not for the same reasons that I believe.
For Christians, the ten commandments should really mean nothing. The ten commandments were given to Moses by God for,… what for it,… the Israelites. Or Jews. Same difference. Christians were not commanded by God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, Casper, Captain Kangaroo or Mr. Rogers to obey the ten commandments that were given to Moses to present to the Jews. As a matter of fact, 9 of the 10 would be a good guideline for Christians today. The lone exception being, keep the Sabbath holy. The Sabbath applied to the Jews only. The Sabbath is the seventh day of the week. The Jews could do no work on the Sabbath. And all of that came to an end once Christ died and the world left the Mosaical age and entered the Christian era. If the Sabbath were to be still Holy today, Christ would have died in vane.
So no,… Do not display the Ten Commandments in public. Doing so teaches error.
