Fight Over 10 Commandments in Oklahoma – Will Murder and Theft Now be Legal?

A Ten Commandments monument has been removed from the grounds of the State Capitol in Oklahoma at the insistence of the ACLU. What makes a law a law? Why is it wrong to murder, steal, and lie, three of the Ten Words (Decalogue) found in Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5 and repeated in the New Testament (Rom. 13:9; Eph. 4:28) and known as the Ten Commandments?

If God is out of the picture, then who gets to make the laws? The State becomes the new God, violating the First and Second Commandments, and it makes all laws.

“In an interview with CNN affiliate KOCO, Bruce Prescott, an ordained Baptist minister and one of the plaintiffs in the suit against the display, said, “I’m not opposed to Ten Commandments monuments. I’m just opposed to the placement on government property, because I think that the government needs to be neutral.” (CNN)

There is no neutrality. The State has declared that it’s OK to steal in terms of taxes. It’s OK to murder in terms of abortion. It has redefined marriage so that now people of the same sex who can’t be “fruitful and multiply” (Gen. 1:28; 9:7) are now at a greater legal advantage in some states because their sexual choices cannot be questioned.

There is no way to avoid who’s ultimately in charge (God or the State), and who makes the laws (God or the State).
