Jesus Reiterated what all the Bible teaches: that God's Law/Word, which is summarized by the Ten Commandments, contains principles that, if obeyed, produce life-life for men and nations- but, if ignored, produce death. Americas laws were based upon God's higher law. This higher law, as summarized in the Ten Commandments, used to be taught to all Americans, was greatly revered, and all looked to obey it. Today, few obey, revere or even know His commands. Many people are doing all they can to remove any vistige of His law from our nation, claiming they are a great detriment to society. In 1980 the Supreme Court ruled in Stone v. Graham that the public schools of Kentucky could not display the Ten Commandments on the walls. The court said: "If the posted copies of the Ten Commandments are to have any effect at all, it will be to induce the schoolchildren to read, meditate upon, perhaps to venerate and obey, the Commandments." About 1.7 million Americans are behind bars today- 1 in every 155. To learn to not steal or murder might not be too abd an idea to help deal with this problem. Marriages ending in divorce have increased exponentially in the last three decades- to learn not to commit adultery seems a pretty good idea. But in order to apply the principles of life contained in the Commandments, we must first know them. If Christians do not thoroughly understand them, they will never be infused in the law and life of our nation.
