God's rules put Los Angeles on notice

First it was Las Vegas. Then Nashville. Then Jacksonville. And now the Los Angeles area has been put on notice how to behave with a billboard carrying God’s rules: the Ten Commandments.

The newly erected sign is along the Century Freeway in the city of Lynwood.

The Ten Commandments appear under the headline “Thus Saith the Lord,” and are part of a nationwide effort to re-introduce Americans to the Ten Commandments, and awaken both believers and non-believers to the evil that abounds in America.

Previously the billboards have appeared in Las Vegas, Nashville and Jacksonville.

The effort has been assembled by Joseph Farah, Founder and CEO of WND.com, and WND Books, and is intended to place the Ten Commandments in front of more American eyes than ever before.

Under attack from “civil rights” organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union for years, and removed from schools, public buildings and even some churches, the message on the tablets handed to Moses seemed to be fading.

But not quite yet.

Farah pointed to a recent loss by the ACLU in an effort to remove the Ten Commandments from a courthouse in Dixie County, Fla.

Senior U.S. District Judge Maurice M. Paul dismissed the case when an anonymous North Carolina man who complained about the message didn’t move to the county. Liberty Counsel attorney Harry Mihet said, “We went from an order that ‘the monument goes and you have to pay $130,000 to the ACLU,’ to ‘the monument stays, and the ACLU has to pay a total of $3,600.'”

The five-foot-tall 12,000-pound monument was erected at the top of the courthouse steps in 2006 after Joe Anderson Jr., chairman and founder of Lake City-based road builder Anderson Columbia, purchased it for $20,000. He has not only funded several other Ten Commandments monuments in Florida, but also a “revival” mobile display. It’s parked somewhere until legal threats arise, and then it takes off down the road.

Farah is erecting Ten Commandments billboards all over the country, and he said with the help of donations, hundreds of billboards can be placed.

“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,” said Farah. “America needs a set of social common denominators if we are to remain a self-governing society. 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.”

You can support the Ten Commandments Billboard Campaign by with your financial donations in any amount or in helping to sponsor outdoor advertising in your own community.

“The problem is America is not limited to atheists, agnostics, cults and non-believers,” says 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 says.

“The Ten Commandments have been banished from our schools,” says 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,” says 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,” says 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 or dismissed or ignored, America will cease forever from being a self-governing nation, as our Founding Fathers intended.
