Well the city of wilmington nc is going to post the 10 commandments and it will be LEGAL to do so.

They are not calling it the ten commandments they are calling it a historical legal document

Since it is one of the first examples of written law to exist.

I am glad to live in the tarheel state.

Especially since 1 ACC bball team will win the NCAA's

That's just great. So much for seperation of church and state. You may not have a problem with it but not everybody believes in YOUR god. If the tables were turned and somebody else wanted religious text that you found offending, impositioning and/or contradictory to what you believe displayed then you'd be against it, naturally.

Alabama is going through this right now.I'm not a bible thumper but the "Big Ten" should not be a problem with decent folks.That is why the ACLU,NAACP,etc has problems with it.

Does anyone here actually know any of these people that are always in the news,or are they perhaps aliens that go back to the mother ship to get recharged?I've talked to folks from all over and the score is decent 98,evil 0....2 couldn't make up their mind.

How in the world can anyone in their right
mind (the opperative words i think) say that
anything suggesting RESPECT and LOVE toward
your fellow man be "offending,impositioning,or
contradictory" ??? TO WHAT ???

Satan deceived the world    Posted 03-08-2002 at 16:30:23       [Reply]  [No Email]
Where there is no law there is no sin!?!
The first sins The Creator, warned man [Gen.2:17] disobey Me and you shall surely
die [He had commanded them not to eat of the tree] or you shall surely die. But Satan
said [Gen.3:1-4] You shall not surely die, and this was the first recorded lie in history,
it was told by Satan not by man, and he twisted God's word,and deceived [Gen.3:5] and what did Eve do? [Gen.3:6] she ate and her husband ate of what God said not to eat,and the 1st sin on human kind against God happened. By doing what they had done they had placed another god in place of the true God-they broke the 1st. Commandment,Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Exodus 20:3,they also broke
the 5th commandment by dishonoring their only parent, and he broke the 10th Commandment, lust vanity, egotism,and pride entered into their heart, and the 8th commandment by stealing what was not theirs, 4 of the 10 commandments were broken in the original sin, and there children, Cain and Abel, Cain tilled the ground, and Abel attended the flocks, But by jealousy Cain murdered Abel, Murder was a sin from the very begining,and Where is thy brother? Cain lied to God, therefore he broke another commandment, Cain broke the 6th and the 9th commandment.And what about Joshua 24:2 Before Abraham's time worshipping idols a transgressions of God's law. The penalty of sin reigned from Adam to Moses. [Romans 5:14] and in Genesis 35:2,4, Idolatry was committed in the generations after Abraham,Leviticus 18:1,27 they were taking the name of God in vain a sin before Moses' time. Exodus 20;8-11In Gen. 39:1-2,7 what of Potiphar's with her advances towards Joseph, Joseph refused, why? adultery!*** Where there is no law, sin is not imputed, Joseph knew God's law and he knew that sin would be imputed if he broked that law!, and in Exodus 20:15 How did Jacob, who lived before the10 Commandments were repeated at Sinai, know it was a sin to steal? {Gen.30:33}Jacob knew and understood the meaning of the word steal, and it was sin, in those days as these days, and what about Abraham's wife, when God prevented King Abimelech from marrying Abraham's wife,[Gen.20:3,4] if Abimelech would have taken her to himself it would have been adultery, it would have been a sin,transgression of the law.And did Abraham,who lived between the time of Adam and Moses, have thorough knolwsedge of God's Commandments? Gen.26:5, and God's statues" and God's laws? How did Abraham learn all these things? God's Voice!
Which We hear loud and clear through His Inspired Word written for us, to have
for a witness and a warning, and thus we hear His voice call, The Holy Ghost leading us
to a place God wants us to be, which is in Him, and through Our High Priest which is our
Elder Brother Jesus Christ whom has redeemed us from the pentally of death through our repentace and His shed blood which we are made white as snow in the presents of
Our Holy Father our Creator.

So, naturally, they will be displayed in the historically correct Hebrew, right?

Hey, that's swell and all, but that biblical doctrinal dogma is only relevant within the system of organized religion and not society in general. If I don't believe in a certain religion and it's scriptures, I shouldn't have to tolerate it being imposed upon my person. When you go to court they don't make you swear on the Koran, the four truths and the noble eightfold path are not hung in courthouses and schools, and jews aren't coming to my door to force me into a discussion about my religious predilections and why I haven't been to temple yet. However, were that that was the case Christians everywhere would be up in arms. Fox news would be calling it a war on Christianity.

realy liked your response, but you mentioned the Father as creator, not entirely wrong, but what about John 1, Hebrews 1:10, Colossians 1:15-17, Ephesians 3:9 ?

So glad to hear it, now maybe the rest of the states will learn something by your example. If you don't stand up for something, you'll fall for anything.

A-Men to that Tomatoelord! We may be made fun of as the "Bible Belt," but I'd rather be in the Bible Belt and have prayer in schools and the Ten Commandments publically displayed than in some heathen Godforsaken city where crime is rampant and people are just downright evil. There's a lot of good folks in NC.

Are you in Smithfield? Shoot, I could spit to your house if you are. Come on over and have some of my homemade hand-squeezed lemonade and lets rock on the porch a while.

Congratulations to the City of Wilmington. I live in Wayne County Indiana, and our county was jst sued in federal court by the ACLU for such a display that has been on our county courthouse lawn for 50 years.
I's time we as tax paying free Americans excersize our rights to freedom of speech and let our legislators know that we support these historical documents be they in christian, hebrew, or any other faith. I think it's ridiculous that there are millions of dollars wasted every year to fight legal battles over ridiculous lawsuits based on outrageous claims of violating freedom of religion, and seperation of church and state. These are not how our founding fathers intended the Constitution to be interpreted.
