A Great Quote from Dallas Willard on the Ten Commandments and News Media

“The Ten Commandments given to Moses as so deep and powerful on these matters that if humanity followed them, daily life would be transformed beyond recognition, and large segments of the public media would collapse for lack of material. Consider a daily newspaper or television newscast and eliminate from it every report that presupposes a breaking of one of the Ten Commandments. Very little will be left.” – Hearing God: Developing a Conversational Relationship with God, 11

  1. Willard is a keen observer of society – and this observation is certainly apt! Of course, many of our elites would think such a world would be very boring. They simply have no concept of how richly rewarding genuine, loving relationships are and how the breaking of the commandments destroys those relationships.

  2. I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about the news media lately. There are times where they get a totally unfair shake when they’re actually doing a good job. And there are many other times where they don’t serve us well in the name of telling an interesting story. I may have to dust off the old blog.
