America Needs the 10 Commandments

By: Vonette Bright

 

 

"and showing loving kindness unto thousands of them that love me and
keep my commandments." Exodus 20:6)

James Madison, the fourth president of the United States, once said: "We have staked the whole future of American civilization not upon the power of government... (but) upon the capacity of each ... of us to govern ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."

I like that! God gave the Ten Commandments to Israel while they
were encamped near Mt. Sinai. God promised the Israelites (and us), He
will show love for those who love Him and keep His commandments.

We Americans, especially our government leaders, would do well to memorize and abide by the Ten Commandments.

Today, write down the Ten Commandments.   They're found in Exodus 20. Post them prominently. And learn them! Then pray for our nation, especially our leaders, to know and abide by them. America's
future is at stake!

If you are nostalgic for the days when the Ten Commandments were
posted in public buildings, you might want to consider visiting the
Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians.

The tribal council is making plans to mount a copy of the Ten
Commandments in the council house where government meetings are held, and possibly display them throughout other public buildings in Cherokee.

The idea was introduced by Councilwoman Angela Kephart last month. She said the tribe should display the Ten Commandments out of respect and devotion to God. The motion passed unanimously.

"We aren't saying you have to abide by the Ten Commandments," Kephart said, according to the Smoky Mountain News. "We are simply displaying God's Ten Commandments. That's what He expects from each and every individual. If you break that, it is between you and God. It is not between you and the tribal council; it is between you and God."

There is no First Amendment issue involved, and even if the American Civil Liberties Union wanted to make one, it can't. The U.S. Constitution does not apply to Cherokee, nor to any other Native American tribe for that matter, according to Cherokee's Attorney General David Nash.

"We are a sovereign nation and we can pretty much post anything we want in our council chambers," said Kephart. "For once the federal government is not going to tell us what to do. We can feel good about it because we are standing up for God. The more it becomes controversial, the more we need to stand firm."


Kephart was clear about her desire to promote Christianity.

"God has blessed our tribe," she said. "We have a very rich tribe, per se. We are operating on over a $200 million budget thanks to our gaming enterprise."

Posting the Ten Commandments doesn't prevent others from practicing their religion, explained Nash.

"Anybody can practice any religion they want to practice," Nash said.
The 10 Commandments
 
"And God spoke all these words, saying: 'I am the LORD your God…
First - "You shall have no other gods before Me."
Second - "You shall not make for yourself a carved image--any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth."
Third - "You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain."
Forth - "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy."
FIfth - "Honor your father and your mother."
Sixth - "You shall not murder."
Seventh - "You shall not commit adultery."
Eighth - "You shall not steal."
Ninth - "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor."
Tenth - "You shall not covet your neighbour's house; you shall not covet your neighbour's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbour's."
