Many friends I know feel as though the commandments are antiquated, outdated and not relevant in today’s world. This belief seems to be prevalent in our culture, Each of the ten commandments have become glamorized through our movies and invade our homes daily through the internet, television and music. We are falsely led to believe that the only way to have fun and enjoy life is to break the commandments and live a life without rules or restrictions.
This is the greatest lie ever told to mankind.
Happiness, joy, and peace can never be found violating these laws of God. The commandments are not given to us to restrict our lifestyle, they are given to provide direction and guidance that will bring about that happiness, joy and peace we long for. Living a life in harmony with Gods law is the only way to find that deep peace that our spirits hunger for. God’s laws are not meant to restrict us, he has given these laws to enable us to know how to bring about true joy and happiness in our lives.
Those who live the way of the world rush from one placebo to the next in looking for the happiness they long for. These placebo’s deceive the individual into believing they have found happiness, only for it to be fleeting and without substance or staying power.
Those who do all within their power to live God’s laws find great peace and comfort in abiding these commandments. These individuals are not prone to the heartache that comes as a natural consequence from violating these laws. They avoid the emotional roller coaster that comes from chasing after one placebo to the next and eliminate much worry and stress from their lives. As a God who loves his children, these commandments are designed to bring about joy in our lives, God desires that we are happy and have joy, his laws are the road map leading to it.
As society tries to eradicate these laws from our lives, through countless legal actions and maneuvers there are those who desire all to lose hope and chase after these placebos instead of discovering for themselves the inner peace and happiness that can be. Man continues its assault on God’s laws. Making a law declaring something legal, will never make it right. Making laws declaring something right as illegal will never them wrong.
There is only one way to true happiness and joy. All others are a deception.
