    27. Reflecting the civil enactment of these two categories embodying the third commandment, a 1610 Virginia law declared:
    2. That no man speak impiously or maliciously against the holy and blessed Trinity or any of the three persons . . . upon pain of death.
    3. That no man blaspheme God’s holy name upon the pain of death.
    28. A 1639 law of Connecticut similarly declared:
    If any person shall blaspheme the name of God the Father, Son, or Holy Ghost, with direct, express, presumptuous or high-handed blasphemy, or shall curse in the like manner, he shall be put to death. Lev. 24.15, 16. 29. Similar laws can be found in Massachusetts in 1641, Connecticut in 1642, New Hampshire in 1680, Pennsylvania in 1682, 1700, and 1741, South Carolina in 1695, North Carolina in 1741, etc. Additionally, prominent Framers also enforced the Decalogue’s third command.30. For example, Commander-in-Chief George Washington issued numerous military orders during the American Revolution that first prohibited swearing and then ordered an attendance on Divine worship, thus relating the prohibition against profanity to a religious duty. Typical of these orders, on July 4, 1775, Washington declared:The General most earnestly requires and expects a due observance of those articles of war established for the government of the army which forbid profane cursing,swearing, and drunkenness; and in like manner requires and expects of all officers and soldiers not engaged on actual duty,”this is just a small sample”

    its first civil law, declaring:
    1. If any man after legal conviction shall have or worship any other god but the Lord God, he shall be put to death (Duet. 13.6 and 17.2, Ex. 22.20).
    23. There are numerous other examples affirming that the first commandment of the Decalogue indeed formed an historical part of American civil law.
    Have no idols.
    24. Typical of the civil laws prohibiting idolatry was a 1680 New Hampshire idolatry law that declared:
    Idolatry. It is enacted by ye Assembly and ye authority thereof, yet if any person having had the knowledge of the true God openly and manifestly have or worship any other god but the Lord God, he shall be put to death. Ex. 22.20, Deut. 13.6 and 10.
    25. Additional examples from colonial codes demonstrate that the second commandment also was historically a part of American civil law.Honor God’s name.
    26. Civil laws enacted to observe this commandment were divided into two categories: laws prohibiting blasphemy and laws prohibiting swearing and profanity. Noah Webster, an American legislator and judge, affirms that both of these categories of laws were derived from the third commandment of the Decalogue:
    When in obedience to the third commandment of the Decalogue you would avoid profane swearing, you are to remember that this alone is not a full compliance with the prohibition which [also] comprehends all irreverent words or actions and whatever tends to cast contempt on the Supreme Being or on His word and ordinances [i.e., blasphemy].

    Have no other gods.
    20. This first commandment of the Decalogue is incorporated into the very first written code of laws enacted in America, those of the Virginia Colony. In 1610, in a law enacted by the Colony leaders, it was declared:
    [S]ince we owe our highest and supreme duty, our greatest and all our allegiance to Him from whom all power and authority is derived, and flows as from the first and only fountain, and being especially soldiers impressed in this sacred cause, we must alone expect our success from Him who is only the blesser of all good attempts, the King of kings, the Commander of commanders, and Lord of hosts, I do strictly command and charge all Captains and Officers of what quality or nature soever, whether commanders in the field, or in town or towns, forts or fortresses, to have a care that the Almighty God be duly and daily served, and that they call upon their people to hear sermons, as that also they diligently frequent morning and evening prayer themselves by their own example and daily life and duties herein, encouraging others thereunto.
    21. A subsequent 1641 Massachusetts legal code also incorporated the thrust of this command of the Decalogue into its statutes. Significantly, the very first law in that State code was based on the very first command of the Decalogue,

    15. In 1672, Connecticut revised its laws and reaffirmed its civil adherence to the laws established in the Scriptures, declaring:
    The serious consideration of the necessity of the establishment of wholesome laws for the regulating of each body politic hath inclined us mainly in obedience unto Jehovah the Great Lawgiver, Who hath been pleased to set down a Divine platform not only of the moral but also of judicial laws suitable for the people of Israel; as . . . laws and constitutions suiting our State.
    16. Significantly, those same legal codes delineated their capital laws in a separate section, and following each capital law was given the Bible verse on which that law was based because:
    No man’s life shall be taken away . . . unless it be by the virtue or equity of some express law of the country warranting the same, established by a general court and sufficiently published, or in case of the defect of a law, in any particular case, by the Word of God.
    17. There are other similar examples, but it is a matter of historical fact that the early colonies adopted the greater body of divine laws as the overall basis of their civil laws. Subsequent to the adoption of that general standard, however, the specifics of the Decalogue were then incorporated into the civil statutes.

    12. The Ten Commandments are a smaller part of the larger body of divine law recognized and early incorporated into America’s civil documents. For example, the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut – established in 1638-39 as the first written constitution in America and considered as the direct predecessor of the U. S. Constitution – declared that the Governor and his council of six elected officials would “have power to administer justice according to the laws here established; and for want thereof according to the rule of the word of God.”
    13. Also in 1638, the Rhode Island government adopted “all those perfect and most absolute laws of His, given us in His holy word of truth, to be guided and judged thereby. Exod. 24. 3, 4; 2 Chron. II. 3; 2 Kings. II. 17.”
    14. The following year, 1639, the New Haven Colony adopted its “Fundamental Articles” for the governance of that Colony, and when the question was placed before the colonists:
    Whether the Scriptures do hold forth a perfect rule for the direction and government of all men in all dut[ies] which they are to perform to God and men as well in the government of families and commonwealths as in matters of the church, this was assented unto by all, no man dissenting as was expressed by holding up of hands.

    Lesiban- Just a side note: the supreme court does not make law! they had a decision, wrong as it is. the congress has not passed a law or the senate that the so-called President in states that don’t allow gay marriage they have no reason to give a marriage licence to a gay couple.

  • [-2] October 5, 2015 at 7:23pm

    Lesiban so what your saying is that I cant put my faith ahead of my environment or it may intrude on your behavior. So be it Jesus Christ comes before you or any other sinful behavior and said behavior is not a belief its an action.And that action is being forced on people who for thousands of years of following Gods word. are expected to allow it wont ever happen.your perverted sexual desires do not over-ride God. I don’t change anybody God does that, but as Christians we will always spread the word of God

  • [-2] October 5, 2015 at 4:16pm

    lesbian the homosexual behavior is a choice and as Christians we will never condone or accept this behavior as a type of race that needs protection. if that was the case what other behavior gets person-hood next? And if you want to act a way that’s destructive ,sinful this is your choice but don’t force your behavior on others just like you don’t like Christians sharing their faith. the big difference between the two is that Christians are being forced to conform .while that will never happen Christians would never force you to accept God its your soul not mine all we can do as Christians is let people know!

  • [-2] October 5, 2015 at 4:07pm

    you may be right now ! but in the end you will bow to Jesus Christ as everyone will. but your salvation would be too late.

  • [-2] October 5, 2015 at 4:04pm

    I care because Jesus cares that’s why.

  • [1] October 5, 2015 at 2:25pm

    Wait I know !! God gave us moral law, Yes Paul you are correct…

    So if it’s a sin repent and move on from it,if you resist the devil he will flee.seems to me your issue is God guiding your life ! God knows we cant be perfect but love him enough to live for him and try! instead of complaining about not being able to do the sin you want to do! Jesus Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was for one reason, because we could never be good enough. And the only way for us to have a relationship with God is his son.

    2Peter 3:3-9 “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

    These men, these scoffers exist today in many forms. Some are not religious men at all, but simply mock the idea that God is still working. Some claim to be religious men, but claim that all Bible prophesy has already been fulfilled, and there is nothing yet to be accomplished. But both classes have the same things in common. They are, as Peter said, “willingly ignorant.” They are willing to ignore the facts of the case, and chose instead to follow what the Scriptures calls “cunningly devised fables.”
