President James Madison reflected best the importance of our commitment to God's standard when he noted that America's success was dependent upon the determination of "each and every one of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God."

The Ten Commandments is the most commonly posted scripture in our society, being posted and written out in over 4,000 public places and in millions of churches and homes.

"And thou shalt write them the posts of thy house, and on thy gates."  Deuteronomy 6:9.

The most important reminder of this day is to do the Ten Commandments. Read more at:

 Church is raising money to put Ten Commandments on City Property

The Ten Commandments

Anderson, IN -- A church group is raising money to set up a Ten Commandments monument on the front lawn of the city building, with the blessing of the City Council.

The council voted unanimously to let Lone Oak Wesleyan Church begin raising $12,000 for the granite marker. Such displays often have been challenged in court on the grounds that they amount to government endorsement of a religion. The U.S. Supreme Court issued divided opinions on the issue last year, essentially letting a monument that had stood for decades in Texas remain in place while rejecting a new display on public property in Kentucky, said Ken Falk, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana. "Any new display is problematic," he said. Church member Ken de la Bastide, Lapel, said the Ten Commandments were the basis of modern law.

 Judge Roy Moore and the Ten Commandments of God

EVA, Alabama - Former Chief Justice Roy Moore was greeted by a church full of clapping supporters when he made a campaign stop at Journey Church Thursday night.

Moore was visiting the church to speak on the relation of God and country.

Quoting founding father Samuel Adams, Moore said that the framers always intended for God to be the sovereign truth in America.

"If you don't recognize that your rights come from God, you recognize that they come from the state," he said. "If they come from the state, they can be taken away, but if they come from God, they are permanent and self evident."

Prior to the event, Moore commented on the Ten Commandments monument that cost him his office in 2003 and his plans for them if he is elected governor.

"I have said that the Ten Commandments of God have a home at CrossPoint Community Church, and I have no intention of moving them from that spot," he said.

"I will however say that I will continue to fight for the right of teachers, judges, state, county and municipal offices to publicly acknowledge God as the sovereign, moral foundation of law, liberty and government. No matter what some federal judge says.

 Catholic 10 Commandments

Ten Commandments of God are blueprint for just society, Catholic Pope says

Vatican, Jan. 25 (CWNews.com) - At his regular weekly audience on Wednesday, January 25, Pope Benedict XVI (bio - news) said that God's law offers a blueprint for "peace and harmony in the world."

Speaking to 7,500 people in the Paul VI auditorium, the Holy Father called attention to two events of the day: the publication of his first encyclical, Deus Caritas Est, and the conclusion of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. He offered a prayer that his encyclical would impel Christians to greater acts of charity, and The Pope's prepared address to the Wednesday audience was a meditation on Psalm 143 (144): "the king's prayer." This psalm, he observed, offers a vision of a time "when the voice of evil will finally be silent," with the complete victory of God's people. The text depicts an ideal society, marked by contented families, abundant crops, and "the entire civil community finally enjoying the precious gift of peace and of public order." This vision can be realized, the Pope said, only through "the work of the Messiah and his people." And it can be reached only by making a clear choice to "take the side of God, of love and of justice." The psalmist says that he will play on a 10-stringed harp, and Pope Benedict-- following St. Augustine, whose commentary he cited-- interpreted that image as a reference to the 10 Commandments. Psalm 143, the Catholic Pontiff concluded, calls believers to "sing a new song with the 10-stringed harp, to sing with the sentiments of Christ, to live the Ten Commandments of the Bible in the dimension of love, and thus to contribute to a world of peace and harmony."

 Ten Commandments of God - Get Okay For New Display in Courthouse

The Dade County courthouse walls could soon display the Ten Commandments of our God.

Elected officials plan to take advantage of a bill passed by the Georgia house allowing courthouses to display copies of the Ten Commandments as historical documents. County Executive Ben Brandon expects overwhelming support to display a Ten Commandments plaque in the courthouse. Ben Brandon, Dade County Executive "And, I'll recommend that, as I think it will be very well received in Dade County. I can't imagine too many people objecting to that in Dade County.

 Ten Commandments Bill, Passes House, Moves to Georgia Senate ATLANTA

Ten Commandments Bill, Passes House, Moves to Georgia Senate ATLANTA - House lawmakers overwhelmingly approved a measure Wednesday that allows courthouses to display copies of the Ten Commandments written out.

The proposal to allow counties to display historical documents on public property passed by a 140-26 vote. The bill's backers said the Ten Commandments and other principles that guide the state's judicial system deserve to be publicly displayed if a county wishes. "We feel there's a real need to educate the public on the history and background to American law," said state Rep. Tommy Benton, R-Jefferson. "The best place to display the documents is the courthouses and judicial buildings in counties." Opponents said the bill would likely cost the state millions in legal fees to defend challenges in court. In a split decision, the U.S. Supreme Court last year declared two courthouse displays of the Ten Commandments in Kentucky unconstitutional. Some also expressed concern with the measure's language, which also specifically permits the Mayflower Compact of 1620, the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution to be displayed. "If we lump the Bible with the Mayflower Compact and the Declaration of Independence, are we demeaning the Bible?" said state Rep. Frank Millar, R-Dunwoody. "I don't think the Bible belongs in that context." He added that he's more concerned with bolstering the state's education system "than where we hang the Ten Commandments." The proposal now moves to the Senate.


Opposing View, from Georgia:

Rep. Fran Millar (R-Dunwoody) is a Georgia Republican lawmaker, associated with liberal thinking. He questioned whether this bill should be a priority for lawmakers. "I'm a lot more concerned about academic achievement and the dropout rate, then where we hang the Ten Commandments," Millar said.
