What’s so bad about rules? Games have rules, that is what makes them fun. Relationships have rules, that is what makes them work. Driving has rules, they are what make it safe. Courts have rules, they are what makes them just. Nature has laws, that is how we can understand and utilize it. Therefore life must have rules, or else it becomes a dangerous and dysfunctional chaos.
Why is it when rules about morality in life are brought up, people invoke their independence of ‘religion’? Does morality only exist in the realm of religious beliefs? If you answer no, then why defame and remove good laws? And if yes, then you face an ominous forecast for a people obsessed with eliminating God from their lives.This connection between God and good will be the undoing of the nation, the state, and the individual.
The supreme court of the state of Oklahoma decided that the display of law was illegal (go figure), and 10:30pm on October 5th, the secretive removal was carried out. “For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.” (John 3:20) This, however, is merely a symptom of the societal insanity infecting the world.
I don’t believe you are brave enough for the real answer. No, I don’t believe that rational people would remove ten moral commandments from public display because they enjoy life with no laws. No, I believe the problem with Exodus is NOT contained in verses 3 thru 17 of the infamous chapter, but rather in the assertion in the first two:
“I am the Lord thy God,” (Exodus 20:2)
