One does well not to get overly invested in Texas politics. Still, it is a big state and what happens there can have wide impact. Thus, it is important to call attention to the very problematic vote by the Texas State Senate to require the posting of the Ten Commandments in every public school classroom.

Such an act would clearly violate the no establishment of religion clause of the US Constitution. Further, it means that those who support the law are replacing the biblical mandate to “write the law upon your hearts” with political power play requiring that law be written upon class room walls.

Thank you to BJC Fellow, an Texas public school parent, Britt Luby, for this excellent analysis.



Prayers for each of you this week,

Pastor Jim
