A court ruled that a Ten Commandments’ monument must be removed from the State Capitol grounds in Oklahoma and the Supreme Court “sided with a lower court that ordered a New Mexico city to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the lawn outside City Hall.” Judge Roy Moore, who is running for the Senate Seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, “was removed from his position as Chief Justice in November 2003 by the Alabama Court of the Judiciary for refusing to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments commissioned by him from the Alabama Judicial Building, despite orders to do so by a federal court.”
Moore’s support of the Ten Commandments is being attacked by the Democrats. Why would they do this? To protect Harvey Weinstein, one of their biggest donors, who violated the Seventh and Tenth Commandments? Politicians don’t like the Eighth Commandment since it prohibits stealing. There is no “You shall not steal except by majority vote.”
Secular governments don’t like “Thou shalt nots.” It’s also why they don’t like a written constitution, especially one that only allows for enumerated powers.
Don’t get me wrong. Judges and politicians love commandments as long as they get to make them. What they don’t like is someone higher than them — the true God — making commandments.
- The First Commandment states that there is only one God, and only He can save us. The State believes it is god and on it can save.
- The Second Commandment forbids idolatry. The State has become an idol and is worshipped as a god when the Bible declares that it is a “minister [servant] of God to [us] for good” (Rom. 13:4). The State continues to grow with the promise of political salvation.
- The Third Commandment forbids taking God’s name in vain. Politicians appeal to God all the time and yet violate His commandments in the same breath. President Obama made reference to God – even singing “Amazing Grace” – in his eulogy for Rev. Pinckney and soon after celebrated the Supreme Court’s ruling making same-sex marriage the law of the land. This is taking God’s name in vain.
- The Fourth Commandment sets one day a week aside for rest. The interesting thing about this commandment is that it’s written into the Constitution at Article I, Section 7, Clause 2.
- The Fifth Commandment defines the family. As we’ve seen the courts have redefined the family, and by redefining the family they can now rewrite all law in terms of that new definition.
- The Sixth Commandment was legislated out of existence decades ago by the sanctioning of perpetual war and the legalization of abortion.
