"He that keepeth the law, happy is he." -Proverbs 29:18
Several years ago Ted Turner, the founder of CNN, said the Ten Commandments were written to take the fun out of life. God did not give us the Ten Commandments to hinder our joy or make us miserable. On the contrary, God gave us the Ten Commandments because they show us how to be truly happy. They are a prescription for happiness.
