God's Top 10...

Harvest OnlineGreg Laurie writes about the mother of all top 10 lists:
1. Have no other gods before Him (see Exodus 20:2-3).

2. Do not make any idols (see Exodus 20:4-6).

3. Do not take the Lord's name in vain (see Exodus 20:7).

4. Keep the Sabbath holy (see Exodus 20:8-11).

5. Honor your father and mother (see Exodus 20:12).

6. Do not murder (see Exodus 20:13).

7. Do not commit adultery (see Exodus 20:14).

8. Do not steal (see Exodus 20:15).

9. Do not lie (see Exodus 20:16).

10. Do not covet (see Exodus 20:17).

... Sadly, what we have in the place of these commandments today is moral relativism, the lack of acceptance of moral absolutes. In other words, there is no such thing as right and wrong. There is "your version" of right that may indeed be right for you, but no universal right that we must all accept.

Moral relativism teaches that we are all products of the evolutionary process. There is no God, no plan, no real purpose for our lives, and there is no devil. Moral relativism teaches that we make our own luck, fate, etc. It tells us we are all basically good inside, and if we go bad, it is because we are "products of our environment." It is the complete freedom from all restraint.

And if you dare to disagree with it and believe in right and wrong, you are labeled "insensitive, intolerant, bigoted and narrow-minded." And if you actually dare to quote the Bible, then you are accused of imposing your "puritanical value system."

No wonder our culture in America is in the state it is in. ...
