Did You Know?

Thanks and praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
I received this below in an e-mail and thought that it was very interesting. I wanted to pass it on.
Let us continue to put God first in our lives.

DID YOU KNOW?
As you walk up the steps to the building which houses the
U.S. Supreme Court you can see near the top of the building
a row of the world's law givers and each one is facing one in
the middle who is facing forward with a full frontal view ...
it is Moses and he is holding the Ten Commandments!

DID YOU KNOW?
As you enter the Supreme Court courtroom, the two huge oak doors have
the Ten Commandments engraved on each lower portion of each door.

DID YOU KNOW?
As you sit inside the courtroom, you can see the wall,
right above where the Supreme Court judges sit,
a display of the Ten Commandments!

DID YOU KNOW?
There are Bible verses etched in stone all over the
Federal Buildings and Monuments in Washington, D.C.

DID YOU KNOW?
James Madison, the fourth president, known as "The Father of Our
Constitution" made the following statement:
"We have staked the whole of all our political institutions upon the
capacity of mankind for self-government, upon the capacity of each and all of us
to govern ourselves, to control ourselves, to sustain ourselves according
to the Ten Commandments of God."

DID YOU KNOW?

and instead of interpreting the law would begin making law. an oligarchy
the rule of few over many.

DID YOU KNOW?
The very first Supreme Court Justice, John Jay, said:
"Americans should select and prefer Christians as their rulers."
How, then, have we gotten to the point that everything we have done for
220 years in this country is now suddenly wrong and unconstitutional?
Lets put it around the world and let the world see and remember what
this great country was built on.

John 1:1-17
1: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2: The same was in the beginning with God.
3: All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4: In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
5: And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
6: There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7: The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
8: He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
9: That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10: He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
11: He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
12: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
13: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14: And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
15: John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
16: And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
17: For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
