INTRODUCTION

A. RECENTLY IN AMERICA THERE HAS BEEN
A BATTLE FOR THE COMMANDMENTS.

1. YOU MAY RECALL THE FORMER
GOVERNOR OF ALABAMA TOOK A
STAND IN SUPPORT OF AN ALABAMA
JUDGE WHO REFUSED TO REMOVE
THE 10 COMMANDMENTS FROM THE
WALL OF HIS COURT ROOM.

2. THE RIGHT TO DISPLAY THE
COMMANDMENTS HAS BEEN HOTLY

A. IT IS THE DIFFERENCE IN THE MOON AND

b. WHEN SIN ENTERED GLORY

c. WE TALK ABOUT SOMEONE’S
SALVATION BEING GLORIOUS.


d. ALL SALVATION IS GLORIOUS.
