Last month I read an article that reported the Oklahoma Supreme Court had ruled that a ‘Ten Commandments’ monument must be removed from the State Capitol grounds.
It appears that these commandments given by God are no longer relevant to modern society, and is arguably supported in our small corner of the world. The 10 Commandments can be viewed as God’s ideal way of living, focussing on what is important to have a fulfilled life. Areas of family, relationships, accountability, responsibility and recreation are covered. Time will tell whether humankind’s attempt to better God’s rules has been successful or not.Chris Ledger, St John’s Church, Worksop.
