entsOKLAHOMA CITY, OK.– Those pesky “separation of church and state” folks are at it again. This time they’ve succeeded in getting a six-foot high 10 Commandments monument removed from the capitol grounds here. Actually. Bruce Prescott, a Baptist minister from Norman, OK., filed suit in 2012 to get the monument removed. He said the monument violated the state’s constitution. “I’m just opposed to it being on public property,” Prescott said.
Should we be getting upset about this? Those of us who know God personally and His laws have His love in our hearts. If folks were able to destroy every 10 Commandments monument in the land, it wouldn’t curtail God’s plans at all. Are His laws sacred? You bet. But they won’t change because some God-haters and separation folks tear the monuments down.
And think about this: How many folks do you suppose have walked by a 10 Commandments monument and said, “Gee, I better get saved on my way home today!” I imagine some folks walking by a monument might say, “Well, I broke number 3, and 5 and 7. I break number 10 a lot.”
Reverence for all God’s laws, in my opinion, is highly personal. I don’t need the 10 Commandments carved in stone to revere them and meditate on them and apply them to my life.
