The Ten CC:
The Ten Commandments Commission was formed in the spring of 2005 following the court rulings against the Ten Commandments , along with a host of other disturbing trends that are witnessed daily throughout our culture. These events, as disturbing now as they were then, clearly demonstrate that our nation is moving away from moral absolutes. The actions of some have threatened the very fabric and foundation of our culture and faith. The Ten Commandments, and all other references to God, which have served as the moral foundation and anchor of our great country, are systematically being removed from public places.
Public displays of the
Ten Commandments and other symbols of our faith have been a powerful visual
testimony to the fact that the
With secular humanists
waging their attacks at home, and the looming threat from the international
radical Islam - people of faith become the line of defense - this is the
"Wall of Jerusalem", and we are the watchman God has placed there.
Therefore, those who care about moral values cannot passively sit by and watch
the removal of the very principles that made this country great. The Ten
Commandments and what they represent are the heart of all moral code
and must be defended before they are removed from society altogether.
We are a grass root
movement led by some of the nation's largest ministries and men of God. The
First Annual Ten Commandments Day was celebrated on Sunday May 7th. Thousands of
churches and synagogues used the day to celebrate the Ten Commandments as
pastors and rabbis spoke about their importance in society. One of the main
planned events of the Ten Commandments Day was a national
telecast hosted by Jay Sekulow and Ruth Schofield from
No civilized society
or government can exist successfully without the recognition, acceptance,
adherence and submission to Moral law and the standard for value judgment.
Therefore, the principle of Freedom demands the protection of God's moral law.
As committed people of faith, we have an obligation to stand up together for God. His law is not only a profile of His character, but also a moral mirror to show humans where we have fallen short in both honoring the Creator, and in respecting our fellow man. Therefore, as we witness the degradation of society, we must come together in a spirit of unity, harmony, and reconciliation to bring the Word of God back to the forefront of our national conscience.
The Ten Commandments
Commission (TCC) is the response to this challenge and endeavors:
1. To provide a
unified expression of our national commitment to divine prerogative.
2. To restore the
supremacy of the tenants, precepts and principles contained in and established
by the Ten Commandments.
3. To provide a global
symbol and a national commemoration day that expresses our submission and
commitment to the values in and the value of the Ten Commandments.
4. To create a
mechanism for the Word of God to be restored in every aspect of society without
violation of the legal system.
5. To give opportunity
for identification with millions who adhere to the supreme law of God.
With your help the Ten
Commandments Commission will be able to go on and take upon itself the
task to enable people in many communities to come together in unity to declare
and restore their commitment to God's holiness and righteous standard – this
will be a good start.
The annual Ten
Commandments Day will be held annually on the first Sunday in the month of May. In 2010 the date of the event will be May 2nd . The Ten Commandments Day is a day dedicated for the display, awareness, commemoration and celebration of the Decalogue which we know to be the divine foundation of the Judeo-Christian faith.
Leading up to the
main, national Ten Commandments Day celebrations, there will be regional Ten
Commandments cultural and spiritual events. Among the planed events are musical
talent shows and contests, choir competitions and concerts as well as other
rallies and gatherings.
The Commission will
endeavor to create multimedia campaign to expose the traumatic events that are
the result of the removal of the Ten Commandments and all other references of
God from the public square; the national moral decay, the rise of the enemy from
within and the looming threat of radical Islam.
We will also establish
and support a Ten Commandments Commission national and global network of prayer
intercessors, along side with a network of volunteers to help achieve the
All of the above
activities are designed to aid in the healing of wounds created by the actions
against God's moral law. And, we feel strongly that this can be done through
strategic and practical objectives and proactive love.
To achieve our goals,
the commission will hold fundraising events through the use of TV telethons,
sponsoring informational TV spots, direct solicitation, and by selling our
exclusive Ten Commandment pins and other related merchandise. We believe that
using the Ten Commandments pin along with a continued awareness campaign will
help to bring about a united passion for the Ten Commandments and the moral
values they represent. It is the goal of the commission to try and send at least
one pin to every household in the nation.
