Acts 26:18Good News Translation (GNT)
18 You are to open their eyes and turn them from the darkness to the light and from the power of Satan to God, so that through their faith in me they will have their sins forgiven and receive their place among God’s chosen people.’
In the dark of night and under tight security, workers in Oklahoma began work to move a 4,800-pound monument of the Ten Commandments from the Capitol grounds.
Installed in 2012, the monument has provoked arguments between those who see it as a violation of the separation of church and state and those who see the commandments as an essential moral forerunner of the rule of law.
The Monday night move followed a June ruling by the Oklahoma Supreme Court that the monument violates a state constitutional provision that prohibits the use of public property for religious purposes.
