10 vs. 10,000

The principles that shaped the founding of America were based on the Ten Commandments. Simple, straightforward, unapologetic.

They have stood the test of time, but not without society’s attempt to cajole adherence. It begs the question: Which is stronger – the letter or the spirit of the law?

The ancient Pharisee’s enumerated 613 laws that regulated everything from when and how to cut your beard to the how to fairly adjudicate damages following a fire. It was all an attempt to force a strict following of the law.

Fast-forward to today where we have a Constitution that, at most, is 20 pages single-sided, double-spaced, but we have to have bills that number upwards of 2,700 pages filled with regulations that we can’t even begin to enumerate and whose impact we can’t even begin to imagine.

This week, we’ll focus on the premise that secular progressives will continue to pile regulation on top of regulation to try to counter the simplicity and purpose of the foundation Ten Commandments to American society.

    Hi Josh:

    It is a ridiculous notion that the 10 Commandments were the driving motivator behind the Constitution. Most of the Commandments deal with the worship of God. It is a complete stretch to think that the founding fathers let that drive them. You may want to reference Thomas Jefferson’s revised Bible if you really think that was his driving motivator.

    I will offer my thoughts if dissent is welcomed on this site. If not, I will go away. My comments will always be respectful but to the point. Your premise is simply wrong.

    My best,

    Kevin Henson
