In Giles County, Virginia, as a result of an ACLU lawsuit against the school system for having a copy of the Ten Commandments displayed on school property, a federal judge has suggested that the display be permitted to remain at the school if (keyword: if) the first four Commandments are removed from it. Those Commandments are:
Thou shalt have no other gods before me. (Exodus 20:3)
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. (Exodus 20:4-6)
Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. (Exodus 20:7)
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. (Exodus 20:8)
And why must these four commandments be removed? Because they speak to man's relationship with God, of course. And this? Much like the ACLU and the anonymous child and parents 'offended' by the presence of the Commandments among other historical documents which played a role in our nation's history, federal judge Michael Urbanski can't tolerate. None of us should be surprised. This anti-Christian tone is in perfect keeping with the Obama administration's consistent record of intolerance toward Christianity. Urbanski, for the record and not surprising to me in the least, is an Obama appointee.
Did you ever in your life believe you would see a day come in the United States of America's history when we would see activist judges ruling in manners like this, particularly when it has been long-established that the Ten Commandments (yes, all ten of them) can be displayed on government property when included in a group of historical documents such as is the case in Giles County, Virginia? I know I didn't until around 2002 when I started looking seriously and in-depth at a host of events and trends taking place around the world which seem to be pointing toward today's generation living in the prophesied last days leading up to Jesus Christ's return.
Here I sit a decade later, realizing that the days when Christians didn't have to fear persecution here in "the land of the free and the home of the brave" are gone. With every passing day, the nation more blessed by God than any other in human history is figuratively shaking its fist at God, its president taking the lead. God help us! Better yet, God forgive us as Christians that we have let so many godless, anti-Christian people take residence in the highest offices in our land through our collective apathy.
In closing, Jesus Christ is coming soon! I don't know how anyone could think otherwise, given the moral and spiritual decay of society taking place both in the United States and abroad. If you have never come to know Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, this would be a great time to do so because time is not a luxury I personally believe there is much left of for a nation (and world) that has forgotten its God.
The Six Commandments? Give me a break.
