When we hear of situations where the Ten Commandments are being taken down from courthouse and school walls it is odd that the followers of Christ seem to be the ones standing in the gap on their behalf.
After all, The Ten Commandments weren’t given to the Christians . . . they were given to the Jews, by God because they are His chosen people.
This was long before Christ was even born. And during his ministry, Christ said, I came to fulfill the law and the prophets. And, that all the commandments are fulfilled by keeping two . . .That you love God with all your heart, soul and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself.
Ironically, if you do these things you will not break the other eight commandments. But why is the Christian community fighting so hard to keep laws given to the Jewish community?
Because if Christians love God, the same God, they must love their brothers as themselves. And the Ten Commandments represent a direct link between God and Man.
What Christians should pray for is that the world would see that Christ represents the same link as the written word, and that the word is “love.”
