MORE INFORMATION ON LIFE CHAIN
Personal experiences from Life Chain coordinators illustrate
the Life Chain influence. A ninth-grade boy who was nervous about
being part of the Life Chain got enough courage to participate.
During the following week when he was asked to write a paper in
English class, he wrote about his experience and why it was
important to be pro-life. His teacher showed his paper to some
other teachers and called his mother, who immediately thought her
son was in trouble.
The teacher said that she had an abortion years ago and that
she and some of the other teachers needed to talk to someone who
could counsel them about their abortions. - Pastor Joe Goodson,
Mansfield, Texas During the hour of prayer, I was asking our Father
what He wanted me to do about next year's Life Chain, in light of
the overwhelming lack of participation of the Church in our
community. (On this rainy day, there were only 75 at the Life Chain
when usually we had 300 to 400 in our location.)
While asking Him, a car pulled up to where I was standing.
The man driving got out and asked me what I and the few others were
doing. When I told him, he said, "Thank you. Do you see my little
girl in the front seat? Her mother and grandmother wanted to abort
her because her mother and I are not married. When they were unable
to fulfill their desire, my little girl's grandmother committed
I have given my life to Jesus and my little girl and I are
praying that her mother will eventually get saved too. Please keep
doing what you are doing today." He got back in the car and I
thanked Jesus for answering my prayer. - Pastor Charles Z. Burchett,
Kirbyville To GOD be the glory...we saw one soul saved! She had an
abortion 14 years ago at her mother's insistence and had carried the
guilt all these years! Also, we had many positive reactions (no
negative that I saw) and even had several passersby give some of our
chainers umbrellas and rain ponchos. Praise GOD. - Barbara Moffett,
Waxahachie/Ellis County While I was standing in the rain with my
umbrella and rain poncho on, a man in a BMW pulled up and parked
behind me. He ran over and got soaking wet while we visited. He
asked what we were doing and said they have two girls in the car who
were adopted and they have never told them that they were. While
they were driving through the signs, one of the girls read slowly,
"Adoption: the Loving Option." The other one read slowly, "Abortion
Kills Children." Then both of them asked, "What does that mean?"
He said, "You have given us the perfect opportunity to explain to
them. Thank you for being here." - Mary Solis, Lake
The Greenville Life Chain has become a successful and integral
part of community involvement in Greenville ever since 1992. It has
succeeded in gaining the respect of businesses and municipal
entities because of its courteous, yet serious, presence. But it
has also become a heartwarming and profound expression in the
community of the link that exists among all people committed to
truth and justice. - Mike Drake, Greenville
It is still not to late to organize a Life Chain. Sunday, Oct
30 is an alternate date for a Life Chain. See
News items on the Commandments
a. Judge upholds 10 Commandments display in Everett, Washington|
SEATTLE -- A 10 Commandments monument can remain on display
outside the police station in Everett, a federal judge said
Tuesday, basing his decision on two recent U.S. Supreme Court
"The display at issue here poses no threat to the religious
freedoms of the citizens of Everett," U.S. District Judge Robert
S. Lasnik wrote.
In June, the Supreme Court issued seemingly contradictory
5-4 rulings in two Ten Commandments cases. In one, the majority
struck down a framed, relatively new display of the Commandments
on the wall of a Kentucky courthouse. In the second, the court
upheld the display of a decades-old Ten Commandments monument on
the grounds of the Texas state capitol.
"The average American who is not a constitutional scholar
may be mystified by the two Ten Commandments opinions," Lasnik
wrote. But he went on to explain that, according to the Supreme
Court, the difference is in context: In Kentucky, the display was
intended to promote religion; in Texas, it was to honor the Ten
Commandments as a legal and historical text.
Lasnik said that he visited Everett, about 30 miles north of
here, to view the monument, and had decided that the context of
the city's monument is almost identical to that in the Texas case.
Both were donated decades ago by the Fraternal Order of Eagles
with a stated goal of promoting good behavior among teens. Both
stand near other monuments, and neither generated many complaints.

b. The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday upheld the
constitutionality of displaying the Ten Commandments on government
land, but drew the line on displays inside courthouses, saying they
violated the doctrine of separation of church and state.
A sharply divided Supreme Court on Monday upheld the
constitutionality of displaying the Ten Commandments on government
land, but drew the line on displays inside courthouses, saying
they violated the doctrine of separation of church and state.
Sending dual signals in ruling on this issue for the first
time in a quarter-century, the high court said that displays of
the Ten Commandments � like their own courtroom frieze � are not
inherently unconstitutional. But each exhibit demands scrutiny to
determine whether it goes too far in amounting to a governmental
promotion of religion, the court said in a case involving Kentucky
In effect, the court said it was taking the position that
issues of Ten Commandments displays in courthouses should be
resolved on a case-by-case basis.
c. Cherokee Nation votes to display Ten Commandments
'We are sovereign nation and can pretty much post anything
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 the Cherokee Nation of western North Carolina. 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."

Ten Commandments - Georgia,
P. O. Box 941,
Hartwell, GA 30643
Your commitment to this event will enable Ten Commandments
Georgia to return to our mission of "Restoring a Common Moral Code"
based on God's laws. With all that is going on in our country today,
it is imperative that we know, obey and post the Ten Commandments in
as many places as possible. While it is becoming increasingly harder
to display and defend the Ten Commandments in government buildings,
it is more important now that we get them in our homes, churches and
businesses! Your giving and support of this fund raising event will
enable us to pay off our legal debts and move forward with locating,
educating and motivating citizens to take back the moral ground that
has been lost over the past half century. We must use the
application of Deut. 11:18... to teach our children, reach our
congregations and influence our businesses with a message of HOPE
that will make our families happier, our communities safer and our
government more just.
This well-rounded and well-balanced offensive will involve 4
#1 Start a TC's - Ga. Chapter in every county in our state
to get the grass roots campaign going.
#2 Enlist 1.2 million signatures on a petition indicating
the broad support for the acknowledgment of the TC's.
#3 Mail a copy of the TC's to every home in the state to
begin the process of restoration.
#4 Register over 600,000 new voters who will begin to
reflect godly values in their choices of candidates.
As all of you know, these goals require the necessity of
financial resources. At this time our office headquarters are
located in Hartwell, with myself serving as volunteer Executive
Director and my wife, Liza, serving as my part time Administrative
Assistant. Therefore, everything is in order for us to move forward
with our campaign. All we need are the resources to get the word out
concerning our goals and to see the Lord bring people on board who
will catch the vision and partner with us. Thank you so much for
considering helping us host this historical event with Senator Zell
Miller. I am sure it is going to be an evening that we will be
sharing about with others for years to come, maybe even our
grandchildren. Feel free to forward this email newsletter on to your
friends and family. Pressing on for Christ, Mike Griffin, Executive
Director, Ten Commandments - Georgia, Inc.
Verses concerning the Ten Commandments:
10 Commandments - King James Version KJV|
What is the greatest commandment?
5 And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,
36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
The Love of God and of neighbor is the summary of the law and prophets.
That thou mightest fear the LORD thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I command thee, thou, and thy son, and thy son's son, all the days of thy life; and that thy days may be prolonged.
