Americans know more about Big Macs than Bible
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. -- How many of the Ten Commandments can you name? That was the question posed in a recent survey of 1,000 Americans,which revealed that respondents were more familiar with the ingredients of a McDonald's(R) hamburger than they were with the historical basis for our nation's legal and moral code.

Done in conjunction with the upcoming nationwide theatrical release from Promenade Pictures of the animated feature film The Ten Commandments on Oct. 19, the study was commissioned by the Ten Commandments Commission and conducted by Kelton Research.

The random survey showed that respondents could recall both the Big Mac(R) ingredients and the members of the fictional TV series Brady Bunch family more easily than they could name the Ten Commandments. Consider:

* 80 percent surveyed know "two all beef patties" of the Big Mac(R). ...

................................................ A-men !!!

....................................................

You said it brother !!!

IF we HAVE TRULY ENCOUNTERED GOD
[*IN*/*OF*/AND *THROUGH* HIS SON]
AND HAVE RECEIVED THE INDWELLING
GIFT OF HIS SPIRIT OF "TRUTH" (THE
HOLY GHOST) -- GOD'S "TRUTH" SHOULD
BE PARAMOUNT IN our lives --- YES, "IT"
SHOULD BE THE WIND THAT FILLS THE
SAILS OF THE THOUGHTS, FEELINGS,
MOTIVES AND INTENTS OF our Hearts/Minds
DRIVING us TOWARD GOD'S HIGHER
MORAL EXCELLENCE, THUS MANIFESTING
ITSELF IN our Culture !!!

How could we settle for anything less ???

Why have we settled for less and less and less... ???

Could it be that we, as a people, don't mean what we say and say what we mean ??? --- Isn't this a form of mental "disorder" that exhibits itself as "A LACK OF CHARACTER" ???

Hmmm

This is why all those *hellhounds* in DC have run out of control -- it's all because we have failed to LIFT UP THE BANNER OF "TRUTH" !!!

We have failed to STAND AND SAY:

............ E N O U G H ....... I S ....... E N O U G H ............

A QUESTION FOR EACH OF US:
CHRIST LIVED AND DIED FOR "TRUTH", **WILL YOU** ???

If we put anything before "TRUTH" then are we liars ??? - Hmmm

*IN* Christ, K

In my humble opinion the disregard of the 10 Commandments in our churches is one of the most significant reasons why the lost in the world around us have pay no attention to the gospel

and why our churches are in the pathetic state they are in.

It is a shame that we don't take God seriously when He clearly has given us His COMMANDMENTS and failing to do that it is utterly hearbreaking of how little regard we have for Jesus Christ Who died for us on the cross that we might be forgiven and reconciled unto God.

Having been around many pentecostal / charismatic people who talk alot about entering into the presence of God, we Baptists sometimes talk about drawing near to God in pray, have we forgotten in the Tabernacle in the Holy of Holies where the Ark of the Covenant and God's presence was - in the Holiest Place on this earth that in the Ark of the Covenant, the treasure God had in the Ark was....the 10 Commandments which He Himself wrote with His Own finger in tablets of stone.

Which by the way should lead us to a serious consideration that He writes these same COMMANDMENTS on the hearts and minds of those who are saved (those who show no evidence that He has done so ought not consider themselves either saved nor elect)

May God help us.

Sharing the 10 commandments with people is a key is helping them to see that they are indeed not the 'good people' they thought they were. When someone sees their lostness, they are ready to flee to the Savior! To learn them easily and quickly go to : http://www.livingwaters.com/downloads/10Commandments_forkids-FLIPCHART.pdf
This has helped me and a lot of kids I know get the 10 commandments locked in the memory banks.

I am the Lord your God who brought thee up out of the land of egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.Thou salt not make unto thyself any graven images. Either of the heavens above or of the earth beneath, or of the waters under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them nor serve them. For I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquities unto the thrid adn forth generation of them that hate me. But showing mercy unto the thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who taketh his name in vain.Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days thou shalt labor and do all thy work, but the seventh day is the sabath unto the Lord thy God. In it thou shalt not do any work, neither you nor your man servant nor your maid servant, your son, nor your daughter, nor the stranger within your gate. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, but rested on the seventh. Wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day and hallowed it.Honor your father and your mother, that thy days may be long upon the land that the Lord thy God giveth you.Thou shalt not kill. Thou shalt not commit adultery.Thou shalt not bear f

I agree with Mark on this one. I had to work to learn the decalogue. But the Big Mac jingle and the Brady Bunch song are just stuck there in my head. What a shame.

Yeah, that was an easy call because we have been saturated by McDonald's jingles from the time we're born until the time their products put us in an early grave. On the other hand, not much of a big deal is made about the ten commandments and I know of no catchy tunes to help me remember them. I can probably name the ten commandments if pressed to do so but, the Brady Bunch theme and McDonald's jingles are seared in to my mind...it's kind of sad actually.

People have a lot of gods. Their daily activities demonstrate who or what is their god. Many claim God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son as their God, but their lives present a different story.

They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. (Tit 1:16)

Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. (Mat 22:37)

This is the first and great commandment. (Mat 22:38)

And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. (Mat 22:39)

1Jo 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

Rom 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.

In the love of Jesus Christ our Lord

That's not the Big Mac jingle I remember. When I was a kid it was:

"Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun".

But my policy has always been "Thou shalt not eat one" and I never have.

The ten commandments aren't marketed like the items on a McDonald's menu. I still remember the catchy diddy from childhood:

"Big Mac, filet-o-fish
Quarter Pounder, French fries
Icy-cold THICK SHAKE
sundae and apple pie!"

Scanned D. Kuperain's (sp) book the Marketing of Evil and that book sums everything up neatly.

And the purpose behind this rediculous comparison is??????

Is it really a surprise that in our spiritually and morally declining western society, that most people don't know the Decalogue?

It wouldn't be a surprise to me if you asked the question of many in the Liberal churches and arrived at the same result.

I wonder how many know who Jesus is and what He has to do with the church.
