Listen up, Springfield! These laws are vital!

The message now is being delivered to Springfield, Mass.

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images.

“That shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.”

And the rest of the Ten Commandments.

With the headline “Thus Saith the Lord,” the commandments billboard is intended to remind Americans of the Judeo-Christian ethics and morality outlined in the Bible. The commandments are posted along I-291 near Roosevelt Avenue.

The billboard is one of many that are popping all over America as part of a campaign launched by WND co-founder Joseph Farah. Farah wants to place the Ten Commandments in front of more American eyes than ever before.

The message has been under attack from “civil rights” organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union for years, which removed them from schools, public buildings and even some churches.

Farah said the commandments are still relevant to American civil life.

“The purpose is to remind the public of the moral law to which all people are accountable whether they like it or not – even the ACLU,” Farah said. “America needs a set of social common denominators if we are to remain a self-governing society.’

He said no such document “has ever been produced by the hand of man.”

“For 3,000 years, empires have come and gone based on their adherence to the Ten Commandments. Millions of people have perished or been brought to salvation by God’s teachings about right and wrong. That’s what this campaign is all about – and I pray Americans will respond in partnership with me in dramatic style.”

Farah said that with the help of donations, hundreds of billboards can be placed all over the country.

“The problem is America is not limited to atheists, agnostics, cults and non-believers,” said Farah. “In fact, the biggest problem America has is with those who call themselves believers but who act no differently than the worldliest individuals on the planet. You can call these people backslidden. You can call them false converts. Or you can call them undiscipled, nominal believers. What they all have in common is they are not in obedience to God. They are not even trying to follow the most basic moral law, as Jesus and the prophets all instructed.”

America has never needed a campaign like this so badly, he said.

“The Ten Commandments have been banished from our schools,” said Farah. “They’ve been banished from our courtrooms and law schools. They’ve even been banished from some of our churches and synagogues. Look what has become of America since. Maybe it’s time to roll them out on highways and byways, in big cities and small towns so no one is without excuse as to the moral code the One True God gave us to govern ourselves.”

Farah and WND are providing seed money for the launch and publicity and hope that Jews and Christians alike – all worshipers of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – will donate money to the campaign to erect the messages on public billboards from coast to coast.

“I don’t know what the result will be,” said Farah. “But I know America badly needs a reminder of who guides the universe and the affairs of men and what He requires of us all. Americans need awareness of their sins before they can repent of them. And until we repent of our sins, America’s fate has been cast to the wind. America needs the Ten Commandments.”

You can donate to the campaign online at the WND Superstore or write checks to WND with a notation “Ten Commandments campaign.” Checks can be sent to WND.com Inc., 2020 Pennsylvania Ave, N.W., Suite 351, Washington, D.C. 20006.

“If you’re concerned about the future of America, heed God’s word in II Chronicles 7:14,” said Farah: “It says, ‘If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.’ But if we don’t understand our sin, which is defined by the Ten Commandments, how can we turn from our wicked ways? And how will God hear us? And how will He heal our land?”

WND believes the Ten Commandments are the glue that hold society together. If they are forgotten, dismissed or ignored, America will cease being a self-governing nation, as its Founding Fathers intended.
