Portrayals of the moral absolute for civil and criminal law are prominently displayed on the Supreme Court building in America’s capital city. To succeed, revisionist pathfinders must keep the Biblical message of the Ten Commandments for law out of the courthouses and education and appeal to man’s selfish nature.

Prior to the emergence of supremacist judges, who embraced the intolerance of the secular rule of man, a morality test guided lawmakers. The rule of law standards, the morality test, include the parameters for civil behavior provided by the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5). Up until then, government public schools emphasized the Ten Commandments.

One of the beautiful boasts of our municipal jurisprudence is that Christianity is a part of the Common Law. …There never has been a period in which Common Law did not recognize Christianity as lying at its foundations. Harvard and many other law schools eventually switched to secular-based case law, leading to removal of the moral absolute’s test and to what the Solon of Athens described as “government by incalculable and changeable decrees.” Knowledgeable citizen juries, however, take the traditional Common Law morality stand, unless prohibited by the judge’s chosen statute when instructing the jury. I verily believe Christianity necessary to the support of civil society (Joseph Story: U.S. Supreme Court Justice, American Jurist and Law Magazine, April 9, 1833, 346–48).

Opposition to murder, theft, perjury and adultery, etc. is universal in human societies worldwide. The willingness of law schools to mislead students into abandoning the morality test is astounding. Leaders entrusted by citizens to police law school curriculum made a foolish mistake. Already apparent from daily news reports, if not corrected, removal of the morality test from court decisions will soon destroy civil liberty in America.

Is it any wonder that the Bible is the most sought after book throughout history? New generations have the sacred right to be taught this truth!

  1. Honor the One God, man’s loving Benefactor and Creator. Men, driven by superstition, worshiped countless numbers of gods at the time these truths were given to us. This God is not denominational, but is the God of all creation.
  2. Have no substitute gods. Humility and respect are important virtues for both the citizen and community.
  3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain. Uphold and honor God’s name.
  4. Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.
  5. Honor your parents for their role.
  6. Do not murder. This reflects mankind’s right to life and liberty.
  7. Do not commit adultery. The sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman is an important example for children.
  8. Do not steal. This protects the work ethic, the right to property ownership, and commerce.
  9. Do not tell lies or testify falsely about the reputation of others. Failure to be truthful is a rejection of justice before the law.
  10. Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thy neighbor’s wife, nor his man servant, nor his ox, nor anything that is thy neighbor’s. This reflects the right to ownership, the sanctity of marriage, moral absolutes, and the family’s right to privacy.

The outcomes associated with the protective Commandments are a vivid contrast to the outcomes of secular dictates that appeal to man’s lower nature—which advances the destructive political correctness agenda.
