Post the Beatitudes, Not the Ten Commandments

From cheaper than therapy, an engaging blog by Rick Bennett, a bright, passionate young pastor in Florida. Rick's blog is always worth reading! I hope one day to hear Rick preach.

"For some reason, the most vocal Christians among us never mention the beatitudes. But, often with tears in their eyes, they demand that the Ten Commandments be posted in public buildings. And of course that's Moses, not Jesus. I haven't heard one of them demand that the Sermon on the Mount, the beatitudes, be posted anywhere."- Kurt Vonnegut

Rick's's puzzling that those who call Jesus Christ their Savior prefer the Ten Commandments uttered by Moses over the Beatitudes preached by Jesus.
