Who we are:

Ten Commandments Commission
A Judeo-Christian Initiative for a Better Tomorrow

The Ten Commandments Commission was formed in the spring of 2005. The main purpose of the organization is to rally public officials, community leaders, international diplomats and grassroots activists to instill Judeo-Christian values in society.

We are joined by some of the nation's largest ministries. The First Annual Ten Commandments Day was celebrated on Sunday May 7th 2006 . Thousands of churches and synagogues used the day to celebrate the Ten Commandments as pastors and rabbis spoke about its importance in society. One of the main events on Ten Commandments Day was a national telecast hosted by many of the nation’s largest ministerial organizations.

The annual Ten Commandments Day is held each year on the first Sunday in May, uniting all supporters in a common cause and event. We strongly encourage all churches in the nation to participate in the celebrations by using the following guidelines:

A.     Pulpits should be used for sermons focusing on the importance of the Ten Commandments in preserving our society and the need to bring them back to the heart and soul of the nation where they belong.

B.     Pastors will be advised to conclude their Ten Commandments message by conducting a signing ceremony with their parishioners.  The most effective way to achieve this is by having the pastor sign the Proclamation on their pulpit and then share the reason for doing so. (We are also encouraging pastors to have TCC representatives for speaking engagements and signing ceremonies throughout the year)

C.   Parishioners are encouraged to proactively partake in the efforts to proclaim the Ten Commandment Day officially on the first Sunday in May. This could be most effective if members will follow the example of their pastor and sign the proclamation immediately following their Ten Commandments Day Sunday service. Proclamations and signing sheets will be available to all churches in the nation and once signed, they will be collated for submission to Washington, DC.

 

One of the ways to increase awareness and urgency was to establish a day in which we can come together and celebrate God's eternal moral law.Our objective is to have 5 million strong members/supporters and bring the Ten Commandments – Watchman United on the Wall message to every church and ministry in the nation.

 

Using the recent Supreme Court rulings regarding the removal of the Ten Commandments from public places gave us a golden opportunity to use this as a unifying cause among a vast number of conservative groups.  The ministries agreed to come on board and many of the most notable Christian leaders have joined. We maintain that those who care about traditional values cannot passively sit by and watch the removal of the very principles that made this country great. The Ten Commandments are the heart of all moral code and must be restored to the heart of our society.
These Supreme Court rulings that threatened the very fabric and foundation of our culture provided the cue to set up the TCC initiative. These rulings concerning the public displays of the Ten Commandments provided us the need, as well as the opportunity to create a movement that now enjoys the support of many major organizations and ministries around the nation.

We maintain that public displays of the Ten Commandments have been a powerful visual testimony to the fact that the United States of America is "one nation under God." Their removal from public places necessitated that the TCC generate a tremendous coalition, one that has led to activities on the Hill that brought forth two congress resolutions.

 House Resolution 598 was championed by representative Akin (R-MS) and co-signed by 30 more members of congress, in support of the goals of the Ten Commandments Commission as the corner stone of western law.  The Resolution is pending a vote in the House.  Senate Resolution 453 was carried by senator Lieberman (IND-CN) and Senator Brownback(R-KN), support the Ten Commandments Commission, and proclaims the Ten Commandments Weekend as the first weekend in the month of May of each year. (See resolution bellow)

The Ten Commandment Commission is also:

 

We have designed ways to reach out to potential members by making it easy for them to:

1. SIGN OUR PETITION TO SUPPORT ISRAEL

 By signing on the web people take a stand with Israel to support their fight against terrorism.  It is also a petition to the US Administration not to abandon  Israel but to stand up with her plight for freedom.

2. BECOME A MEMBER (SUPPORTER) OF THE TCC

 To become a member of the TCC, we ask people to register on the web.  By taking this step, you will be taking a bold stand for righteousness and your answer to our call is most significant.

3. DISPLAY THE TEN COMMANDMENTS

 We are encouraging everyone to wear the Ten Commandments gold plated Pin that we have made available as a powerful display of unity and reverence for God's holy word. 

The pin will be sent as a gift to every donation of $25.00 or more. The Ten Commandments pin is available in bulk orders (50 and more) to ministries at a cost of $7.50 each, plus shipping. 

 

The Ten Commandments Commission Media Committee consists of:

 Dr. Frank Write - President NRB, Dr. Ron Hembree, President - Cornerstone TV, Dr. David Clark , President - PBAU, Dr. Bruno Camaano, President - Alma Vision, Warren Trumbly, President KAXT TV, Larry Bates, President Information Radio Network, Ruth Schofield, President - The Washington Report , Jerry Rose, President - TLN, Dr. Garth Coonce, President - TCT.

S. RES. 483

 

Recognizing the first weekend of May 2008 as `Ten Commandments Weekend'.
IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

March 13, 2008

Mr. BROWNBACK (for himself and Mr. LIEBERMAN) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary


RESOLUTION

Recognizing the first weekend of May 2008 as `Ten Commandments Weekend'.

Whereas the Ten Commandments are precepts foundational to the faith of millions of Americans;

Whereas the Ten Commandments are a declaration of fundamental principles for a fair and just society;

Whereas, from the founding of the United States, the Ten Commandments have been part of America's basic cultural fabric;


Whereas the national hero and first President, George Washington, proclaimed in his first inaugural address in 1789: `[I]t would be peculiarly improper to omit in this first official act my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe, who presides in the councils of nations, and whose providential aids can supply every human defect, that His benediction may consecrate to the liberties and the happiness of the people of the United States a government instituted by themselves for these essential purposes, and may enable every instrument employed in its administration to execute with success the functions allotted to his charge.';

Whereas one of the great leaders of the United States, President John Quincy Adams, declared in a letter to his son, `The law given from Sinai was a civil and municipal as well as a moral and religious code . . . [many] were of universal application--laws essential to the existence of men in society, and most of which have been enacted by every nation, which ever professed any code of laws.';

Whereas President Harry S. Truman affirmed, `The fundamental basis of this Nation's law was given to Moses on the Mount. The fundamental basis of our Bill of Rights comes from the teachings which we get from Exodus and St. Matthew, from Isaiah and St. Paul. I don't think we emphasize that enough these days. If we don't have the proper fundamental moral background, we will finally wind up with a totalitarian government which does not believe in rights for anybody except the state.';

Whereas, in addition to being understood as an elemental source for American law, the Ten Commandments have become a recognized symbol of law in our Nation's culture;

Whereas a marble relief portrait of Moses, the Hebrew prophet and bearer of the Ten Commandments , is located prominently in the United States Capitol over the gallery doors of the chamber of the House of Representatives in honor of his work in establishing the principles that underlie American law;

Whereas images of the Ten Commandments are prominently displayed in many Federal buildings, including the United States Supreme Court, the National Archives, and the Library of Congress; and

Whereas the first weekends of May in 2006 and 2007 were celebrated by many Americans as `Ten Commandments Weekend' in recognition of the importance of the Ten Commandments in their faith and the history and culture of the United States: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Senate--
(1) recognizes the first weekend of May 2008 as `Ten Commandments Weekend';
(2) celebrates the Ten Commandments as a significant aspect of the national life of the United States; and
(3) encourages citizens of the United States to reflect on the integral role that the Ten Commandments have played in the life of the Nation.
