The Ten Commandments Are More Relevant Than Ever

The Ten Commandments Are More Relevant Than Ever (Source thetrumpet.com) It is both compelling and tragic that a majority of Britons see building a relationship with God as irrelevant in our increasingly dangerous world. We need God now more than ever. “On Tuesday, the archbishop of Canterbury signaled support for a day of rest, tweeting that he was ‘encouraged’ by the chief rabbi’s campaign for people to spend time offline over the Sabbath,” wrote Rudgard. Merriam-Webster defines the word sabbath as: “the seventh day of the week observed from Friday evening to Saturday evening as a day of rest and worship by Jews and some Christians.” The complete wording of the Fourth Commandment comprises four verses in Exodus 20:8-11. It contains the most detailed instructions of any commandment. “While almost half of Catholics said they supported keeping the Sabbath day [Sunday] holy, just 29% of Protestants said they felt the same,” continued Rudgard. What does it say about society in general if people don’t see a need to worship God, even on the wrong day of the week? Religious fervor is in serious decline, not only in the British Isles, but in America too. “According to a usa Today poll, ‘60%of Americans cannot name five of the Ten Commandments,’” reported the Family Research Council website. “74% of Americans can name all three Stooges. Here is the sad news: Only 14% can accurately name all Ten Commandments.” Who’s to blame? Certainly, every person must bear his own shame for not wanting to worship God and keep His Ten Commandments. Yet Christian leaders are falling down on the job.
