Commentary

July 24, 2015

You shall teach them to your children, speaking of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up. Hello, this is Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. The Bible is clear that teaching our children God's ways should be at the core of our instruction, not simply a spiritual afterthought. The reason for this is because God knew the only way to keep a nation focused on God, was for the people to have that focus. While many Christian lament the removal of the 10 Commandments from schools, courthouses and event State Capitols, like the recent case in Oklahoma, the reality is the truth of those commandments and its centrality to our lives was carted off a long time before the tablets. I applaud Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin and state attorney general, Scott Pruitt, for defending the historic display. But more importantly, I applaud the moms and dads who are helping to inscribe these truths on the hearts of their children - beyond the reach of a court. For more, go to TonyPerkins.com.
