Removing the 10 Commandments

Removing the Ten Commandments (10 Commandments) from places don’t make them go away. Like in Oklahoma Capitol where they were recently removed.

The 10 Commandments are …

  • The standards that God judges us by.
  • The standards in which God expects us to live by.
  • Have its roots in the laws we have today.

Most of the laws we have today have a basis in today’s laws.

  • Thou shall not steal. Well it is illegal to steal.
  • Thou shall not kill. We all know that murder is illegal too.

You can take down and remove the statues, plaques, etc. of the 10 Commandments but that won’t make them go away. They are etched in stone and hearts!

One day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. We will face God on Judgement Day.

It is sad to see this happen, but we do know right now the world is growing darker and darker and trying to turn away from God. We as Christians shouldn’t asked surprised. One we are told this will happen and two we are not standing up for our beliefs.

The World is trying to say God doesn’t exists or if He does, He is a loving God. Yes, God is loving. He doesn’t want anyone to perish, but on the same hand He is a just God and will give judgement.

Look at the time of Noah, he flooded the earth. Yes, He did promise to never flood the earth again, but He had said He will punish the earth.

Look at the time of Lot, he destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with fire. We know the finial judgement will be by fire on the whole earth.

We are living in the days of Noah and Lot right now! We are living in the end of times.

I am glad the light of Christ shines brighter the darker we get. But, I do know it will get harder and harder before it gets better.

We think because we remove the 10 Commandments we no longer have any moral standards. We believe it will take God away. Nothing we can do or say will make God go away. God will send judgement on us for what we do or don’t do.

We are truly living in the ends of times.

Check out these verses in Hebrews 10:26-30.

26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

There it shows we do not have a license to sin. It also shows that we cannot reject the Mosaic Laws, or the 10 Commandments. If we reject the laws are pretty much dragging Jesus in the mud and walking all over Him. This also shows that God is a just God and will seek out punishment.

Are you ready to meet Jesus?

We will either meet Jesus individually, as we are not promised tomorrow or we will meet Jesus corporately, together as a group.
