Then Peter and the other apostles replied:
“We must obey God rather than men!

Dear friend of KHCS,

The battle over the Ten Commandments monument in Alabama is not over yet it’s just beginning!

And, yes, it’s just a battle in a larger war instituted by anti-Christian bigots who want to remove religion and morality from public influence.

But let’s look at the real issue here.  It’s not just about a monument.  It’s about obeying the law of the land.  And whether our laws are based on the laws of God.

Detractors of Alabama’s Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore claim that he is a lawbreaker; that the United States is supposed to be governed by the rule of law rather than the rule of men.  Yes, but, they fail to see that it is precisely those federal judges who make up rulings out of thin air, without reference to legal precedent or the Constitution, who are the real lawbreakers.

They say, “He has to obey the law!”  I would have to ask WHAT LAW?  You know that if you get a traffic ticket, it will show which section of the Vehicle Code you have violated.  But, which law did Judge Moore violate?  Can you cite the reference in the United States Code?  The Code of Federal Regulations?  Was it 10 U.S.C. 311?  Or 73 C.F.R. 11.35?  Guess what there is no such law that prohibits religious displays in public places!

Moreover, the First Amendment to the Constitution says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof. . .”  Do you see that?  “Congress shall make no law. . .”  If there was such a law, it would be unconstitutional!  Therefore, if there was a law, Judge Moore could not be in violation, because it would be an illegal law!

If our country’s laws were founded on the rule of Rex Lex (“the King is­ the Law”), whatever the King (judge, whatever) decrees automatically becomes the law of the land then our Biblical response would be to submit.  But, the American legal system is that of Lex Rex the Law is King!  And our role is to submit to the Constitution!  Not to tyrants! 

Yes, tyrants who suspended a public school teacher for wearing a cross pendant.  Who cancelled a Michigan college student’s tuition because he wanted to major in Theology.  Who want you to refrain from saying “Merry Christmas” because that is “insensitive” who want Christian churches to remove crosses from their buildings because the Cross is “offensive!”

I want to encourage you to stand up to these anti-Christian terrorists who demand that you to step to the back of the bus, sit down, and shut up.  They tell the world that you are ignorant, brainwashed fools.  You know better.  And so do I.

That’s why KHCS brings you Information and Inspiration 24 hours a day.  By keeping your dial on 91.7FM, you keep up with issues like these that threaten to prevent you from following the leading of the Lord. 

And that’s why your tax-deductible contributions are so vital in keeping this important radio ministry on the air.  I hope you will pray right now about your commitment to doing your part as a Ministry Partner.  Then, please send your most generous contribution today.  It will really go far in keeping you informed, and preserving our American heritage.


In His joy!

P.S.  On July 4, 1776, the Continental Congress commissioned Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson to create a Great Seal and Motto for the new United States.  The Seal is enclosed, showing Moses extending his hand over the Red Sea, and the waters overwhelming Pharaoh and his army.  I wish they had adopted the motto: REBELLION TO TYRANTS IS OBEDIENCE TO GOD.

Let’s obey God!
