The First Commandment (continued)

   Many in the world today question God's existence.  They search for the meaning of life and how this planet came into existence.  They have theories, and then they bear false witness to back up their theories, and because of this they call down upon us the justice of God.  Children are taught in our schools that man did not come from God, but through evolution.  This is clearly a violation of the First Commandment and should be cast out from all schools that teach this blasphemy, for God is the Creator of Heaven and earth.  His is a Good and Gracious God, slow to anger, but His Justice is profound.

   God gives us the Commandments so that we can recognize the authority He has over us.  Those who hear the Word of God and refuse the authority He has over them, shall feel His punishment upon their death, where suffering is eternal.  God is a Good and Gracious God to those who love Him.  And to those who journey along the narrow path that God has given them through His Glorious Ten Commandments shall find eternal life in the kingdom of Heaven.  We should contemplate each and every day on the Generosity of God and on His Mercy and on His Justice.  It is important that we contemplate on our death as a reality and where our heart will be at the time of our death.  Will it be with our Lord or with the world?  It is important that we contemplate each day on our Almighty God, whether it is through the light that the Holy Gospel gives, or through the writings of the Saints that have gone before us.  Each day we must recognize our need for God and call upon Him through the means of prayer, for prayer is an act that strengthens the theological virtues of Faith, Hope, and Charity.  Prayer is unity with God, and it relates our confidence in God, our reverence for God and our love for God.  Prayer of thanksgiving renders God honor.  Prayer is completely essential in our ability to obey the Commandments of God, for without prayer our spiritual life becomes weakened and becomes fragile, and that will eventually lead us into violating the Commandments of God.
