Should we be concerned for the souls of the next generation. Listen to Adrian Rogers now our young people today, many of them could not recite many more members of churches, but most of the parents could not give you five memory the 10 Commandments of these kids have those blue face computers and television in the room with her becoming roadkill on the information Highway they do not understand the word of God and the truth of God welcome to love truly powerful, timeless messages, pastor and author Adrian Rogers and their families cannot survive apart from a moral base, which is why it takes God to make a home.

God's plan for the home is to be so supercharged with spiritual truth and godliness that these things will go from one generation to the next. To do that we need to refer back to the timeless 10 Commandments, found in Deuteronomy chapter 5. If you have your Bible turn there now is Adrian Rogers begins. Part one of it takes God to make a home 10 Commandments are given in two places and asked this chapter 20 Deuteronomy chapter 5 I chose in Deuteronomy chapter 5 today for a specific purpose, though we may spend the rest of our time and the rest of the Commandments in Exodus chapter 20, you find out why the chosen Deuteronomy 5 in just a moment. Deuteronomy chapter 5 and verse six I am the Lord thy God, which brought the out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage. Thou shalt have none other gods before me. Thou shalt not make of the any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above all that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth.

Thou shalt not bow down myself, under them, nor serve them. For I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me and showing mercy and thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.

Thou shall not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. Keep the Sabbath day, to sanctify as the Lord thy God hath commanded the six days shalt thou labor and do thy work.

But the seventh day this is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God in it thou shall not do any work now, but I saw no thy daughters, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant know that I'm ASKED nor any of my cattle boli stranger that is within thy gates that thy manservant and I maidservant may rest as well as now and remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the Lord thy God brought the out fence through a mighty hand and by stretched out arm.

Therefore the Lord thy God commanded me to keep the Sabbath day. Honor thy father and thy mother is the Lord thy God hath commanded the that thy days may be prolonged in that it may be well within the land which the Lord thy God giveth the thou shalt not kill. Neither shalt thou commit adultery.

Neither shalt not steal, neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbor. Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbor's wife neighbor shalt not covet thy neighbor's house is fielders, manservant, or his maidservant's authors ass or anything that is by neighbors. That's one listing of 10 Commandments, you can find them again and slightly different wording. The same meaning and asked this chapter 20 and if you are an informed individual you know that there is a cultural war going on in America. It is the battle for the soul of America battleground is the home and the issue is truth and Satan is aimed all of the artillery of hell at the homes of America and every shell and that artillery is a lie. Satan's chief weapon is deception as Satan had rather tell a lie, then pedaled out Satan had rather get you to believe a wrong thing than to do our own thing. A lie is the most dangerous thing on the face of this earth. It is antithetical to God who is the truth. His word is truth and so Satan is a pusher of lies because it is the thought that is the father of the B and if he can get a nation to move away from its truth.

If the foundations be destroyed. Then what can the righteous do. Now we live in a generation that has lost its fixed standards. It's lost its moorings. It's lost its compass.

It's lost its anchor. We now have morality by majority and the result is chaos in society.

I'm sick and tired of hearing about the left and the right, the religious right and the religious left. Ladies and gentlemen, it is not an issue of left or right. It is an issue of right or wrong. There is a God, there is a God and that God has given us his 10 Commandments now our young people today, many of them could not recite the 10 Commandments. Many of them were members of churches, but most of the parents could not give you by memory the 10 Commandments and these kids have those blue face computers and televisions in the room but they're becoming roadkill only information Highway they do not understand the word of God and the truth of God put this down big and plain straight there is no goodness without God there is no goodness without God. The title of our message today as we did with the first commandment. It takes God to make a home it takes God to make a home something horrible is happening in America in earlier eras. Ministers regularly exhorted congregations to humbly confess our sins, but the aging baby boomers who are rushing back to church do not want to hear sermons that might rattle their self-esteem, and many clergy who are competing in a buyers market feel they cannot afford to alienate. May God help us, and I will cite any preacher may be listening. Be grateful. People come to hear you preach, but it is not your job to fill the auditorium is your job to fill the pulpit whether they will hear it all. Whether they will not.

I'm sick and tired of marketing religion and pandering to people's desires. We have a nation today that needs to hear. Thus saith the Lord. We need a short word from God, William Bennett, former secretary of education and the drug czar says this is a clear sense from the American people that this is a problem that has deep roots. It's a problem of social disintegration is a problem about value. I feel sorry for today's young people.

I was in an airport in Orlando.

I saw a young man I suppose he was about 18 years of age he had an earring in one year.

He had a lot of facial hair, and he was wearing a T-shirt on this T-shirt. I picked up my pen wrote down what he settled back. Here's what it said on the bike. This T-shirt he said I am not scared.

I am not afraid. I am an animal, I will eat you alive if I have to know. See you as what he said on the back of his T-shirt. Now indeed we are raising a generation of youngsters who feel like animals. And why shouldn't I feel like animals they been taught that come from them. They been taught that they were not created in the image of God but they are an accident of nature.

This young man wearing a T-shirt that says he's not afraid.

I think he was very much afraid we used to have a cat when the dog would come in she puff up like that you receive the cat knew that puff up real because what he was doing. He just because he was so afraid and I think one of the reasons that he was so afraid that he had to advertise that he was not afraid was that he did not know what we're trying to teach our young people today. We were teaching them God's 10 Commandments, beginning with the first one which says I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Now that Commandments are found in Deuteronomy chapter 5, but I want you to turn to Deuteronomy chapter 6 and understand here that God is telling us how we are to keep these commandments and to teach these commandments look, if you will in chapter 6 and verse one now these are the commandments, the statutes and the judgments which the Lord your God commanded to teach you that you might do them in the land whether ye go to possess it, that thou might is fear the Lord thy God, to keep all his statutes and his commandments, which I commanded the thou advice on and I saw the sun all the days of thy life that thy days may be prolonged. God says if you want your home and your nation the last been take these commandments and hand them down from father to son.

Now James Madison is called the father of the American Constitution. I want to listen to this. Here's what he said we have state the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We have state in the future of our political institutions upon the capacity of each and all of us to govern ourselves, to control ourselves according to the 10 Commandments of God as what James Madison said. He said we staked everything on the ability of the American populace to govern themselves and control themselves.

According to the 10 Commandments and is not preacher said that that's the father of the Constitution.

Now those same 10 Commandments have been removed from the classrooms in America's schools. Now the father of the Constitution said you cannot govern yourselves apart from the 10 Commandments and America cannot survive. Apart from a moral base annual home cannot survive apart from Amaro base now read with me if you will, is what God says that fathers are to do and mothers are to do in their home.

I'm going to Deuteronomy chapter 6 and verse four hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord is restating again the commandment that I just gave you on the Lord thy God. Thou shall have no other gods before me. Here oh Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord, and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul and with all thy might. And these words which I command thee this day, shall be in by heart about shall teach them diligently under thy children and shall talk of them when noncitizen line house and when I walk us. By the way, and when thou lies down and when thou rises up thou shall combine them for sign up online hand and they shall be as frontlets between my eyes, and thou shall write them upon the post of my house and all thy gates and it shall be when the Lord thy God have brought the unto the land which he swear by Father's Day brand, Isaac and Jacob, to give the great and goodly cities which thou built is not an house is full of all good things which thou Phil is not an well state which thou big is not, and vineyards and olive trees which thou plan is not when thou shalt have eaten and be full.

Then then Israel, listen, then America listens everywhere. Last thou forget the Lord which brought me forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Now this passage that I read to you the Jews consider to be the most important passage in the book of Deuteronomy, if not in the entire Bible is called the Shema. Orthodox Jews would repeat this at least twice a day. They repeated in the congregation here oh Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord, and thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart with all thy soul, with all thy might and teach this father's to your children now. We complain of the 10 Commandments are not posted in public places today, but the question is how many parents here today know the 10 Commandments. The question is how many of us have the 10 Commandments posted in our home. God told Moses. Moses tell them to put these laws upon the doorpost of their house and God said, father's it is your responsibility, not the government's nor the school teachers to teach these commandments to your children father's it is your responsibility. It is the responsibility of the skill is not the responsibility of the government is the responsibility of dads to see that these commandments are handed down. This is God's priority plan. God says that the whole is to be so supercharged with spiritual truth and godliness that these things will go from one generation to another.

For the most part, a juvenile delinquent as a child trying to act like his parents emigrated problem today is not brought about kids would drop out dad's and misguided mothers who have failed to hand down the street from one generation to another.

Now listen, this is Deuteronomy chapter 6 here oh Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord that I call the great revelation Lord now, not just one God, one Jehovah, one Lord, you know, everybody's going to believe something and in some kind of a God, but we're not just talking about the God of your choice somebody gave me this a while back called the marsh God EMU SH Bush dear eaten mush for breakfast. The marsh God, must God has been known to appear to millionaires on golf courses. He appears to politicians at ribbon-cutting ceremonies, and the clergyman speaking the invocation on national television at either Democratic or Republican convention. The marsh God has no theology to speak of being a cream of wheat divinity the marsh. God has no particular credo no tenets of faith, nothing that would make it difficult for believer and nonbeliever like to lower one's head with the temporary chairman tells us that Rev. Rabbi father mufti or so-and-so will lead us in an innocuous harmless prayer for this God of public occasions is not a jealous God. You can even invoke him to start a hookers convention and he/she or it will be offended protector of the buddy system.

The marsh God is the Lord of secular ritual of the necessary but hypocritical forms and formalities that hush the divisive and the derisive marsh God is a serviceable God whose laws are chiseled, not on tablets but written on sand open to amendment qualification and erasure. This is a God that will compromise with you. Make allowances and the clear all wars. Holy and all pieces followed the marsh. God never met in his all-around.

That's the God that Americans want to believe in the marsh God when talking about the marsh God with all that Jehovah God, we are talking about the one I have the Lord thy God. Thou shall have no other gods before me. The great revelation is one Lord how you know Pastor Rogers well number one Scripture declares the fact that God you might think the first commandment would say thou shalt not be an atheist, and thou shall not believe in atheism, but it doesn't do, but I will. Everyone argues the fact of atheist Bible just began Genesis 11 in the beginning God sweetly sublimely shortly. In the beginning God. God only gives one half of one verse atheism Psalm 14 verse one the fool hath said in his heart there is no God. I'm not here today to try to prove God, but you, I might argue with you about it.

I will never argue with a fool in public somebody samurai will be able to tell who's who the Bible says seven is there is no God.

The Bible simply states God a man who denies faxes a fool and a man who denies the supreme fact is the supreme law of the Scriptures declare the fact that God never noticed when you try to teach a little child about God.

How simple it is when you try to teach a child. There is no God, how convoluted the arguments become one atheistic father was trying, teachers, child. There is no God after he got finished with his long drawn out explanation of how everything just happened little child looked at the daddy and said daddy you think God knows we don't believe in him you see that is innate in the human heart. The Scriptures declare the fact of God and creation displays the hand of God we talk about the laws of science. They, not the laws of science. You look at creation. These are the laws of God that science has discovered and the scientists are no more capable of creating those laws than Columbus was capable of creating North America. He simply discovered what was already there yet.

Your children, your children are taught in school that they evolved that they came out of primordial whose and you cannot teach creation and yet the Declaration of Independence is we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, something is wrong here folks, when our nation was built on the fact that God who made us gave us those rights and now we cannot teach that in public schools know what they're talking there taught that billions and billions of years and time plus chance will bring life out of inorganic matter which they can explain where it came from that inorganic matter and then given billions and billions more of years. Time will turn frogs into princes.

Matthew tell that in the nursery school is called a fairytale development classrooms call science quickly follows become princes. That's the monkey mythology. We have a generation is being taught. We know that there's one Lord, the Scripture declares that Fran creation displays it and faith discovers faith discovers nobody never argued in believing in God's people accuse us of being believers. They say you're a believer friend Ray body is a believe the atheist is a belief system. April there's a God. I said I can't pages. Lance is a prove there is no God. He can't even piece as well. I've I don't believe there's a God is about make you believe you believe there is no God and you believe there is no God.

I believe there is a God. I believe by faith. There is a God, but I believe with evidence. I have the external evidence I have the internal evidence I have the creation and I have the witness of God in my heart and if you want to believe in God you can believe in God, the matter is not in your head is in your heart. The fool has said in his there is no God didn't have intellectual problems. He has moral problems because he does not want this God to rule over him.

You see friend God. So why do God so made you got so created you that when your heart is right. Your heart will respond to the fact of God. Like my eye response to light when my eyes right like my ear response to sound when my ears right your heart will respond to God when your heart is right, the great revelation is this here oh Israel there is one God, the Lord our God is one Lord, the Lord our God is one Lord coming up tomorrow will you the powerful conclusion of this message, but maybe you have questions now about who God is what Jesus means to you how to receive the forgiveness he's offering you go to where discovered Jesus and find resources and materials that can answer questions you may have about your faith again go to and click discovered Jesus, if you like to order a copy of today's message request one by the title of it takes God to make a home and call us to order at 1877 love God's message is also part of the powerful series of perfect 10 for homes that win for the complete collection all 10 insightful messages: number 1877 love God, we can go online to or rightist order at love worth finding box 38, 600 Memphis, TN 38183 thanks for joining us in our study of God's word today.
