Reader: Commandments meant to be used as guides

Posted: Thursday, January 26, 2006

Over the last few weeks I have noticed a large number of people using the Ten Commandments. Letters asking why people who believe in God, believe in capital punishment. First of all, I would like to say this about the Ten Commandments: They were given to the nation of Israel by God, to his chosen people. They were given as a sign to show that Israel-Mankind, could not keep these laws of God. These laws were given to show Israel-Mankind that we needed another way to be forgiven by God, for our sins against him.

The only way is the Lord Jesus Christ. If one looks at the Ten Commandments in the book of Exodus, chapters 20 through 23, we see the law was strict, none of this waiting around 20-plus years to put someone to death, only to have it be appealed and the ACLU do everything it can to stop it. If you mess up, you pay the price — some times with your life, Exodus 21:17.

Curse mom and dad and die, right now. Thou shalt not kill commandment. This really means murder. If you murder someone, you shall be put to death. When? Several years down the road, after thousands of dollars have been spent needlessly. While the victims scream out from their graves of justice. What happened to the victims’ rights?

I would really love it if the bleeding hearts would be willing to go by the commandments of God. But you won’t. For you don’t really know what you are asking for. If you did, you wouldn’t be asking. We all will pay the price for our sins some day. We will all have to stand before Christ, the Judge of Righteousness, someday. Why? To pay for our sins against God’s laws.

And here is a little heads-up, God doesn’t really care whether you believe it. It’s going to happen in spite of your blind belief. Will you have Jesus Christ as your lawyer? This is my new meaning for ACLU: almighty Christ loves us.
