Ten Commandments Commission Helps New Mexico Pastors Catch Vision for Renewed America
ALBUQUERQUE, NM (February 7, 2006) --- Over 140 pastors and church leaders from around New Mexico came together in Albuquerque on February 2nd to hear how they and their congregations can take a bold stand for Judeo-Christian values and the Ten Commandments. Ron Wexler, founder of the Ten Commandments Commission, explained to the group gathered at Albuquerque’s Tanowan Country Club that America is at a crisis and that the Church must take the point in leading the nation back to a respect for God’s authority.
“This is a crucial period in America,” said Wexler, who founded the Ten Commandments Commission as a grassroots movement to lead America back to its Judeo-Christian roots. “In so many ways our nation has lost its moral and faith focus, and it’s important that our pastors and religious leaders help turn that around, to get our communities and our people to realize how critical it is for us to submit to God’s standard.”
Wexler noted that America was founded as one nation under God, and the Ten Commandments were viewed by our forbears as a significant moral guide. “The Church in America has always taken the lead in keeping our nation on track morally,” he said. “Now that same Church must take a bold stand for Judeo-Christian values in this generation, while there is still time to turn things around.”
Belarmino “Blackie” Gonzalez, founder of New Mexico’s Son Broadcasting Corporation and chairman of the Ten Commandments Commission, said he was encouraged by the positive response he witnessed from the New Mexico pastors to the upcoming Ten Commandments Day on May 7th. “We’ve been given a great opportunity to get this message of God’s righteousness into every home in the nation,” he said. “I truly believe that God is preparing to move in America as never before, and he is using the Ten Commandments Commission to help prepare the heart of this nation.”
Gonzalez noted that many pastors were particularly excited about the Ten Commandments Pin, which has become the universal symbol for the grassroots movement. “At the luncheon we distributed more than 1,000 of the beautiful Ten Commandments Pins,” he said. “We are encouraging everyone who is involved in this outreach to purchase and proudly wear these pins as a symbol of their commitment to seeing America return to a place of reverence for the things of God.”
Also speaking at the pastor’s luncheon were Bruno Camaño, founder of the Spanish Christian television network Almavisión; former New Mexico Congressman Bill Redmond; and Pastor Jack Webb of Destiny Church in Albuquerque.
“It was an honor to have these esteemed men as part of the program, to help inspire and encourage the pastors of New Mexico to get on board and take part in leading our nation back to its founding greatness,” said Wexler. “We are seeing this same excitement wherever we go, and we pray that God will use religious leaders all over this nation to help make the needed change in America’s heart.”
The Ten Commandments Day celebration is slated for May 7th, when people of faith gather in churches, cathedrals, synagogues, and community centers around the nation to take a bold stand for God’s righteousness and the Judeo-Christian standards upon which America was founded.
