A note from Pastor Kevin Lea follows this article.
Popular megachurch pastor Andy Stanley of North Point Ministries (NPM) says Christians need to stop erecting monuments to the Ten Commandments because they apparently no longer apply to Christians, which is completely false.
In a piece posted to Relevant Magazine on Monday, Pastor Stanley said that since the Ten Commandments come from the old covenant, Christians should stop erecting monuments dedicated to them. He completely misses the point that Christianity has commonly taught that the coming of Jesus Christ fulfills the old covenant, not replaces it.
It also teaches that while the new covenant implemented by Jesus Christ does away with ceremonial laws, the moral laws remain forever. That means the 10 Commandments apply to Christians every bit as much today as they did during the time of Moses.

We must be getting close to our Lord and Savior, Jesus, coming to take the remnant home. Are you ready? If so, then you are probably just as grieved with this article as I was.
