Although removed from many places in America, God’s law cannot be removed from the Bible nor from the hearts of men.  Gerald Wheeler sent in this version of the simple rules provided by God  to help men live in peace.

In is impossible to understand the grace of God without understanding the Law.  How can we see that we are sinners in need unless we know the Law?

Here’s Gerald’s email:

In middle Tennessee they translated the ‘King James’ into ‘Jackson County’ language….no joke (posted on the wall at Cross Trails Church in Gainesboro , TN ).

(1) Just one God

(2) Put nothin’ before God

(3) Watch yer mouth

(4) Git yourself to Sunday meetin’

(5) Honor yer Ma & Pa

(6) No killin’

(7) No foolin’ around with another fellow’s gal.

(8) Don’t take what ain’t yers

(9) No tellin’ tales or gossipin’

(10) Don’t be hankerin’ for yer buddy’s stuff

That’s it, plain an’ simple. Y’all have a nice day now ya hear!

And bless your little peapickin’ heart….


  1. Having a great day just read Psalm 19. Might give it a peak.
