Step Out of the Shadows...

Today was the first annual Ten Commandments Day.

Rabbis, pastors, reverends and many, many more leaders of faith have gotten together in agreement. They have declared the first Sunday in May to be recognized as Ten Commandments Day.

The Ten Commandments Commission was founded to counter the secular agenda and help restore the Ten Commandments and Judeo-Christian values to their rightful place in our society.

Recent court rulings against the Ten Commandments, along with a host of disturbing trends we witness daily throughout our culture, clearly demonstrates that our nation is moving away from that tradition. These actions have threatened the very fabric and foundation of our culture and faith. The Ten Commandments and all other references to God, which have served as the moral foundation and anchor of our great country, are systematically being removed from public places. Public displays of the Ten Commandments and other symbols of our faith have been a powerful visual testimony to the fact that the United States of America is "one nation under God." Their removal from public places shows that those with a secular humanist agenda are intent on destroying the moral heritage of our nation.

I agree.

The "secular humanist agenda" has infiltrated many aspects of our lives.

A boycott has begun against the movie, The Da Vinci Code.

I had already decided to not support this movie quite some time ago.

I was so happy to find an online petition and have already submitted my "signature".

Christians have a voice.

They need to learn how to use it.


The Ten Commandments

Exodus 20:1 - 17 (New International Version)

1 And God spoke all these words:

2 "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

3 "You shall have no other gods before me.

4 "You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.

5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me,

6 but showing love to a thousand {generations} of those who love me and keep my commandments.

7 "You shall not misuse the name of the LORD your God, for the LORD will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses his name.

8 "Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.

9 Six days you shall labor and do all your work,

10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates.

11 For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

12 "Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.

13 "You shall not murder.

14 "You shall not commit adultery.

15 "You shall not steal.

16 "You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

17 "You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."

How incredibly awesome that must have been!
How incredibly awesome that is!
What an amazing privilege to serve this God!

I too decided to boycott the upcoming movie "The Da Vinci Code". There has been quite a bit of talk going on about it... I think it's outrageous that they made a movie about it... It's awful.

Thanks for sharing the link to the petition. I'm going to go add my signature too...

Hey Peggikaye... Wouldn't have been so awe inspiring to have been there?

I'm glad you are signing the petition. We need to spread the word and get as many people to sign it as possible.
