On Friday, I was listening to the Rush Limbaugh Show, and he was talking about the deal with the Ten Commandments monument in Alabama. I'm kinda conflicted in how I feel about this issue, but believe at my core that Jesus came to fulfill the Ten Commandments and gave us the Two New Commandments: Jesus said, "'Love the Lord your God with all your passion and prayer and intelligence.' This is the most important, the first on any list. But there is a second to set alongside it: 'Love others as well as you love yourself.' These two commands are pegs; everything in God's Law and the Prophets hangs from them."(Matthew 22:37-40 MSG). I also believe that the best place for people to see and understand the meaning of the Big Ten is when they are written on the hearts of believers and acted out, rather than to see them displayed on a cold stone monument sitting in a place of judgment. Anyway, Rush read part of a piece from, a weekly column called Tuesday Morning Quarterback, by Gregg Easterbrook. (If you go to read the story, you may want to scroll down about halfway down the page to where it says Warning -- Serious Item!--it's buried in the middle of a long rant about everything from football to sushi to lingerie.) Here's the quote that really got me interested in the piece:"As a church-going Christian...I find it deeply embarrassing when Christianity is associated, in the public eye, with hucksters like Moore. I find it embarrassing, too, when Christians supporting Moore's hunk of stone suggest that a big object in a public square is what matters, rather than the power of God's message itself. Anyone who needs to look at a big object in order to believe, doesn't really believe." I was impressed that insights such as this are posted on a sports website. Way to go, guys.
