200 More Churches Commit to the First Annual Ten Commandments Day: Special Observance to be celebrated worldwide May 7th
Nov 3, 2005 (BOCA RATON, FL)-- Another 200 churches have signed on to take part in the first annual worldwide Ten Commandments Day coming up on May 7, 2006, reported Ron Wexler, President and CEO of the Ten Commandments Commission, one of the world's fastest growing faith-based grassroots efforts. "This is in addition to the hundreds of churches, synagogues, ministries, and organizations that have already partnered with us in this massive, organized show of support for God's law and righteous standard," he said.
Wexler expressed his thankfulness and joy for the latest outpouring of support for the Ten Commandments effort. "We knew it would come, but this latest series of commitments exceeds our wildest expectations," he said. "Our ultimate hope is for one million churches, cathedrals, synagogues, and other groups around the world to partner with us and participate in the first-ever global Ten Commandments Day celebration."
Ten Commandments Day on May 7th will be an opportunity for millions of church and religious leaders, along with believers from around the globe, to come together in unity, repentance, prayer, and hope, explained Wexler. "I earnestly believe and pray that together we will be able to bring a reverence for God's word and authority back to the nations of the earth," he said.
For churches, synagogues, and believers who observe a Saturday Sabbath, Ten Commandments Day will be celebrated on Saturday, May 6th.
Added Wexler, "We have also created a unique 'Ten Commandments Pin' to serve as a global symbol of our stand for God's law and righteousness. We want every person who cares about Judeo-Christian values to wear this pin as a bold expression of reverence for God's unchanging standard."
Heading the list of ministry leaders who have joined in supporting the Ten Commandments Commission is Dr. Paul Crouch, founder of Trinity Broadcasting Network, the world's largest religious television network. "This is one of the most profoundly important campaigns that believers and Christian leaders can be involved in at a most crucial time in history," said Dr. Crouch. "With so many ongoing attacks against the very foundations any nation needs to survive and prosper, Christians everywhere simply must make a bold stand for God's righteous standard. I believe this is a divinely appointed opportunity."

Jakes (The Potter's House), Richard Shakarian (Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship), Pastor Billy Joe Daugherty (Tulsa Victory Christian Center), Benny Hinn (Benny Hinn Ministries), Ted Haggard (National Association of Evangelicals), Dr. Mark J.
