I recently ventured north and returned to the Flathead Valley in Montana. After living in Colorado for the past 11 years, I was so impressed and touched by the 10 Commandment signs that were posted everywhere! I was truly impressed by the fact that they were not only in front of churches (where they should be), but also in front of private businesses, residences, and land. In a world where I see so much darkness and confusion, seeing those signs was a light that touched me greatly. I quite honestly feel that I am residing in a country that has changed so much since I was a child, that I don't recognize it or feel I can relate to it anymore, it was simply refreshing to see a community return to what this country was founded upon. I felt at "home" there in the presence of God's word; I saw a light in those signs that I haven't witnessed in quite some time. I cannot get them out of my head or my heart.
God has blessed America greatly over the years, a country founded upon Christian faith and morale, if we do not get back to this groundwork I fear for our children's futures. It is up to us as Christians to stand up and preach what God has taught us, and the love he holds for his people. To do this, I believe we must recognize what is happening in our government, our schools, our news media, and our priorities as children of God. As Christians, we must work together within our communities to fight this encroachment on our American way of life. There is a relentless effort going on all over this country to remove any reference to God and His law and we cannot stand for it. It is our duty to counteract these efforts to destroy the Christian influence and values this country was founded upon. One simple way is displaying God's law, not to condemn, but rather to show us, we are in need of a savior, Jesus Christ.
