Signs and Symbols

In the year 2005, the American Constitution has put into law that the Ten Commandments cannot be displayed legally unless there is a historic theme to the display. I say what a joke.

If you really think about it the whole Bible is Historic from the beginning of time. I ask this question does science displays show any historic meaning, or furthermore does the nakedness of Greek Mythology displays show any historic facts.

I guess it depends on what historic fact is being emphasize or whom is in control. We have many structures in America that have everything from reptiles to who knows what. I ask why is that it we can put up with others signs and symbols, but they can't put up with ours. Does it hurt them so much when they see the Ten Commandments displayed. If so why? What is the underlining cause of your hurt or contempt. After all if you can except the in God we trust symbol on the American dollar, why can't you accept the viewing of the Ten Commandments.

Let's see what the Bible says about Symbolization. In the book of Ezekiel 41:18 it says were carved cherubim and palm trees. Palm trees alternated with cherubim. Each cherub had two faces; the face of a man toward the palm tree on one side and the face of a lion toward the palm tree on the other. Now the NIV Bible dictionary states that the Cherub means this.

A winged, angelic being who exists primarily to glorify God and to vindicate God's holiness against the presumptuous pride of fallen humans. Symbolic attendant marking the place of God' enthronement in his earthly kingdom (Exodus 25:18) The plural co cherub is cherubim.

If people were really trying to enforce their belief on others, wouldn't they create a cherubim. I think the Ten Commandments is a very good way of showing the historic fact not only of the Biblical sense, but also in the American sense for which this country was founded. It's like back in the 1950"s when they insisted that the teaching of the Bible not be included in the school criteria. Now look at what we have today in America's public school system, we have drugs, guns, gangs, pregnancy, rape, cheating of school grades by teachers and students. Yes I guess it was a good idea to remove Christ from school. But good for whom I wonder, think about it.

It is written in 1Timothy 4:13 it says Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. Now I ask when will we get back to basics, if ever? When will we reserve the right to uphold the fundamentals on which this country was founded? Can someone tell me if it has change if so where is it written?

To conclude in the book of 2Thessalonians 2:15 it says So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. May our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and by his grace gave us eternal encouragement and good hope, encourage your hearts and strengthen you in every good deed and word.

Love Always,
Your Sister in Christ,
