Below are the Ten Commandments from the Old Testament of the Bible. The Books of the Old Testament of the Bible, were recorded by the Jews, and are accepted and incorporated by the Jews, Christians, Muslims, and Mormons.
- Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
- Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image. (In this commandment, the Lord condemns the worship of idols. Idolatry may take many forms. Some people replace the living God with other idols, such as money, material possessions, ideas, or prestige.)
- Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
- Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
- Honor thy father and thy mother.
- Thou shalt not kill.
- Thou shalt not commit adultery. (Fornication, homosexuality, and other sexual sins are violations of the seventh commandment.)
- Thou shalt not steal.
- Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
- Thou shalt not covet. (Coveting, or envying something that belongs to another.)
You may have first been introduced to the Ten Commandments in Church. You may have later seen the Ten Commandments displayed in school classrooms. You may have seen the Ten Commandments displayed in County Courthouses and State Capitols. The Ten Commandments are taught and displayed because this is what we are supposed to believe and follow.
In court, witnesses are sworn to tell the truth by placing their hand on the Bible. Elected officials are sworn to uphold the Constitution by placing their hand on the Bible. We are supposed to believe in the Bible. The ethics, morals, conduct, and justice contained in the Ten Commandments and the Bible are an important basis for our government, the Constitution, our laws, our court system, our law enforcement, and our military.
We are supposed to conduct ourselves in a Christian manner, according to the Ten Commandments, and according to the Bible. Everyone is educated in school and taught in Church what to think and what to believe. We are taught right and wrong, good and bad, what is moral and immoral, what is acceptable and unacceptable, what is appropriate and inappropriate. We are taught how to act, how to behave, and how to conduct ourselves.
Most of the adults living here in Dickinson, who aren’t in jail, live each day trying more or less to abide by what we were taught in school and Church about how to behave, what is right and wrong, what is moral and immoral. Most of us do.
However, there are people living in Dickinson who wanted to get ahead, and either little by little, or all at once, they got rid of their belief in God, the Bible, and the Ten Commandments. When they quit believing in God, the Bible, the Ten Commandments, and everything that they were taught about right and wrong, tremendous opportunities and possibilities opened up. Especially the opportunity to take advantage of everyone else.
These Elite People, they have figured out that there are so many more possibilities in life once you are no longer held back by fear of retribution from God. Once you realize that there is no God, the Bible, the Ten Commandments, right and wrong, moral and immoral, are ridiculous fictional concepts that needlessly limited what they could do.
I am telling you Ordinary People in Dickinson this, because at the higher levels of the Catholic Church, the Mormon Church, other Churches, Masonry, Government, and Business, the people no longer believe in God. They don’t have to abide by the same rules as you Ordinary People, because there aren’t any rules. However, it is better if all you Ordinary People continue to believe in God and the Bible, because it makes all you Ordinary People much easier to control, manage, and take advantage of.
