  • Ten Commandments are not suggestions from God

    If you are lost in the woods, why is a compass an essential tool? The needle on the compass always points true north, and if you know that safety or shelter are south, you know which direction to travel, and that can keep you from getting completely lost and possibly putting your life at risk.
