On Sundays, in our church bulletin, there's a story or letter from our preacher. Sometimes it's from his heart, sometimes it's copied. Every now and then, there's something that really makes me think. So, why not share that!

Committed to His Word
The Bible is essential equipment for the human race.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."
God's Word teaches me, rebukes me (repairs my way of thinking), corrects me and trains me in righteousness.

Years ago, the state of Kentucky had a law that every public school classroom post the Ten Commandments. The Supreme Court ruled against the state of Kentucky, ordering them to remove all copies of the Ten Commandments saying, "Having the commandments on the wall may induce a student to read, meditate upon and actually obey what is therein written." Even the Supreme Court realized the Word of God has the power to transform the character of the people who read it.

Would it really be so bad if students read and obeyed the Ten Commandments?
