    Do not misuse the name of the Lord your God.
    Remember the Sabbath Day by keeping it holy.

    You shall not murder.

    Be faithful in marriage.
    You shall not steal.

    Do not tell lies about others.
    Do not want anything that belongs to someone else.

    TYKES (ages 3-5)

    Lesson 1

    I am your God.
    Only worship me.

    God smiles when
    He wakes up in the morning
    because He loves you.
    Do you know He created
    everything you see around you?
    Thats why He also
    wants you to love Him.

    Think about
    Why God thinks you are special.
    Is He is watching over you right now?
    How do you praise God?

    Lesson 2

    Do not misuse His name.
    Remember His Day.

    You might hear a few people
    say nasty words, but.
    God wants you to use your
    mouth to praise Him.
    And He wants you to have
    a week full of fun.
    But visit Him at least one day.

    Think about
    Some of the good words you hear.
    What do you do to have fun?
    What are some kind names we can say?
    God likes you to visit Him? Why?
    How do we visit God?

    Lesson 3

    Respect those who look after you.
    You shall not hurt people.

    God sent special people
    to look after you.
    He does this for you to grow
    up healthy and strong.
    In the same way other children
    need you to be kind.
    To share and to be helpful.

    Think about
    Who looks after you each day?
    Do most of your friends like you? Why?
    How do you share things?

    Lesson 4

    Be true to your special friend.
    You shall not steal.

    There are people who really
    want to be your friend.
    And Gods wish is to be kind
    to them, like He is to you.
    You should take nothing that is
    not yours, without asking
    permission to use it.

    Think about
    Who is your best friend? Why?
    How is God your friend?
    Do you ever lend someone your toys?
    Should you ask before you
    take something? Why?

    Lesson 5

    It is not nice to tell lies.
    Do not be jealous of others.

    Telling an untrue story about
    a friend is not very nice.
    It could make them so sad
    they might want to move away.
    If other children have toys
    you do not have, then
    be happy for them.

    Think about
    It is good to tell the truth. Why?
    Who are your good friends?
    Do you have toys friends dont have?
    What could you do if you
    want something and dont have it?

    LEARNERS (ages 6-9)

    Lesson 1

    I am the Lord your God.
    Do not worship anyone else.

    God in Heaven watches over us
    and is pleased at the good things we do.
    When we need help, He is the
    one we should go to.
    Many years ago people worshipped
    idols such as cats and the sun.
    Today it may be money, music or
    fancy cars, toys and sports.

    Think about
    Why does God love us so much?
    When should you go to God for help?
    What is meant by an idol today?

    Lesson 2

    Do not misuse the name of the Lord.
    Remember the Sabbath Day.

    God wants you to use His name
    when you pray, or when you want to
    have a special talk with Him.
    And he is really pleased when you visit
    Him at church along with your
    family or friends because
    we are all part of one family.

    Think about
    Why it sounds terrible to misuse Gods name.
    What do you say and do when you are angry?
    What is good about going to Gods house?

    Lesson 3

    Respect your parents.
    You shall not take someones life.

    Adults who take care of you on earth are
    placed there by God to look after
    you and to help you grow up properly.
    And prepare you for when you are a parent.
    Each person on this earth is
    precious in the eyes of God and do not
    take the law into your own hands.

    Think about
    Why parents are so patient with you?
    Why parents want to know your friends?
    Is it important to get along with others? Why?

    Lesson 4

    Be faithful in marriage.
    You shall not steal.

    If you get married, God wants you to love
    and respect your wife & husband, protect
    and care for each other with your whole heart.
    then you will have a good family.
    You might see your friends take things
    that do not belong to them.
    God wants you NOT to copy them.

    Think about
    Do you know what a best friend is?

    Lesson 5

    Do not tell lies about others.
    Do not want what belongs to someone else.

    It is important not to tell untrue stories
    about others. It could get you into trouble
    and cause much harm.
    And it would make God unhappy.
    No matter what you have, someone has
    something else you dont own.
    Maybe you can share what you have.

    Think about
    How an untruth can really hurt someone.
    Did that ever happen to you?
    Should you be satisfied with what you have?

    TEACHERS (ages 9-12)

    Lesson 1

    I am the Lord your God
    Do not worship any God except me.

    Many people, young and older seek
    help from friends, books and Social Workers.
    God is always there to love and guide you.
    In this modern world it is also easy to
    desire the latest high tech toys or gadgets.
    Be careful they do not become idols
    keeping you from Gods instructions for your life.

    Think about
    That magnificent brain God gave you. Why?
    When was the last time you received help from God?
    Are idols in the past different from those now?

    Lesson 2

    Do not misuse the name of the Lord your God.
    Remember the Sabbath Day by keeping it holy.

    As Christians we have the privilege of
    serving a mighty God, who wants us to share
    the good news of His Kingdom and
    to use His name in reverence.
    For six days God worked to make heaven,
    sea and land, animals and all things.
    And He rested on the seventh. Why dont we?

    Think about
    It sounds awful to hear Gods name in vain. Why?
    Are you able to lead friends to Jesus?
    Must some people always work on Sunday?

    Lesson 3

    Respect your father and your mother.
    You shall not murder.

    Your parents brought you into the world
    through love and they hope for you
    to grow up to have a happy life.
    Love them back, do your best in school.
    God gave each of us life, to fulfill a
    plan for us in this world so we may use those
    special gifts to help ourselves and others.

    Think about
    What memory you carry about your parents.
    Do you have a vision for your life?
    Is it important to think about others? Why?

    Lesson 4

    Be faithful in marriage.
    You shall not steal.

    When you marry you should love
    your spouse and not another
    who might break up the happy marriage.
    Your spouse is same as a best friend.
    Taking something from someone else without
    their permission is not only stealing,
    but mean and selfish.

    Think about
    Spouse means the same as husband or wife.
    Did you ever lose a best friend? How?
    How would you feel if someone stole from you?

    Lesson 5

    Do not tell lies about others.
    Do not want anything that belongs to someone else.

    Lying not only destroys someones
    reputation, but their work and friends too.
    God did not create us to bring sadness to others.
    Sometimes it is hard to understand why
    some people have so much, fancy car, nice house
    and other things. But God does not want us to
    place our eyes only on things of this earth.

    Think about
    What do people mean about a little white lie?
    Does anyone tell lies about you? Why?
    Will it upset you not to get everything you want?

    NOTES:

    This Summer program opened up with prayer, words of welcome and a brief introduction of 3 Program leaders for each of the age groups. They were responsible to stay with their age group and to participate with them as they went to each of the four locations below where other volunteers waited:

    Bible Study based on Biblical Theme;
    Art & Table Fun;
    Outdoor Games; and
    Treat Time.

    Prizes and certificates of accomplishment were handed out at the end of the week. Sing-songs and gifts for special achievement were given, and all received a small bag of treats. Many volunteers donated holidays and spare time for this exciting program of activities. We averaged around 50 children each of the five mornings.

  12. The Importance of Sympathy and Empathy in Christian Living by Max Aplin  
    2/15/2018 / Relationships
    As Christians we are called to imitate God in His love. An important part of this involves sympathizing and empathizing with people. Sympathy is about suffering because a person is suffering. Empathy is about knowing how a person feels or how they would feel in a certain situation. Having these qualities can do a lot of good and prevent various problems.

    Here in Part 4 of this paper we go from Romans 4:5 through Galatians 3:21 in this study of the Greek noun dikaiousune that is most often translated righteousness in which all the uses of this Greek noun in the New Testament are considered.

  18. sabbath day or worship day by Definite Dhliwayo  
    2/14/2018 / Bible Studies
    Sunday or any day of the week is not bad at all, in the new testament we worship God any day any time anywhere because we now live with him inside as his temple so we dont have to meet him anywhere but we walk with him. We go to church to fellowship with others not with God because God lives in us we fellowship with him anytime we want. So keeping a day holy in the new covenant is not necessary in as much as going to offer a cow on an alter for thanksgiving is not necessary.

  55. GOD LOVES YOU by PEARL NSIAH-KUMI  
    2/07/2018 / Salvation

    So, who is God? God is the holy Creator of the universe, including both the visible and unseen things. He has ultimate power and wisdom. He owns everything and everybody (see Psalm 24:1), and has the right to do with each person as He chooses. He created man in His own image, so humans have the character of God, and just like God, we are eternal as well as emotional beings. Being emotional, we have the ability to love, hate, forgive, create, and admire beauty.
    When God created man (Adam and Eve), He enjoyed a relationship with them; He visited and talked with them often (see Genesis 3:8), until that relationship was tainted and interrupted by sin, the result of Satans doing and mans disobedience. Sin ruined the relationship, not only in the present, but also for the future--eternally, because God is holy and cannot co-exist with sin, in this world or the next. Out of love for us, and the desire to resume an ongoing relationship with us, God put into motion the plans He had since the beginning of time to restore the relationship. The only solution to the problem was for sin to be punished.

  58. Isaiah 53: Set Free and Made Righteous by the Lamb of God, Part 6 by Karl Kemp  
    2/06/2018 / Bible Studies
    We discuss the meaning of three Hebrew words here in Part 6, building on the BDB Hebrew Lexicon; tsaddiq (adjective for righteous); tsadeq, tsadoq (verb for justify, make righteous), and tsedeq (noun for righteousness). I didn't find even one example where these words dealt with people being righteous because they had been forgiven, whether through sacrificial offerings, or not.

  62. Does the Oral Contraceptive Pill Cause Abortions? by Max Aplin  
    2/06/2018 / Relationships
    It seems highly likely that one of the ways in which the standard oral contraceptive pill works is by causing abortions. There are other, natural methods of family planning, and there seems to be no justifiable reason for women to use this pill for the purpose of avoiding pregnancy.

  65. Isaiah 53: Set Free and Made Righteous by the Lamb of God, Part 5 by Karl Kemp  
    2/05/2018 / Bible Studies
    I'll quote from quite a few Christian scholars who discuss the meaning of the verb "justify" in Isaiah 53:11. I disagree for the most part with what they say on this topic. We begin a rather thorough study of the Hebrew words that are most often translated righteous, righteousness, or justify in the Old Testament, using the BDB Hebrew Lexicon.

    2/03/2018 / Bible Studies
    We continue the discussion of the Greek noun aphesis and Luke 4:18 here in Part 4 and look at Ephesians 1:7, which is one of the verses that can be better understood and translated by a better understanding of the meaning of aphesis. And we continue with the study of Isaiah 53:11, which is the most important verse in this very important chapter.

  81. Isaiah 53: Set Free and Made Righteous by the Lamb of God, Part 2 by Karl Kemp  
    2/01/2018 / Bible Studies
    We discuss Isaiah 53:1-6 here in Part 2 of this paper. Jesus, the Lamb of God, bore our sins with the guilt and the penalties, including bearing our sicknesses and pains. These things were considered penalties for sin under the old covenant. However, the heart of the gospel is that He bore the penalties of spiritual death and bondage to sin and demons that resulted from Adam's fall, so we could be born again and be made righteous with the imparted righteousness of God through the outpoured, indwelling Righteous, Holy Spirit, of life.

    Isaiah chapter 53 is one of the most important chapters in the Bible on the all-important atoning death of the Lamb of God, the Lord Jesus Christ. He bore our sins with the guilt and the penalties, including the major penalties of spiritual death and bondage to sin, so we could be born again and made righteous with the imparted righteousness of God by the indwelling Righteous, Holy Spirit of God.

  90. Charismatic Churches and Their Attitude to the Mind by Max Aplin  
    1/30/2018 / Christian Living
    Although charismatic Christians are right to emphasize the importance of gifts of the Spirit, many make the mistake of downplaying the importance of reasoning and the mind. The Bible makes it clear that there is a big place for reasoning in the Christian faith. God has given us spirits and minds, and we should use both to the full in His service.

  98. A Short History of the World and the Proposed Future New World Government. by ralph jackson  
    1/28/2018 / Bible Studies
    The Bible tells us that in the beginning God made the heavens and the earth (Genesis 1). He then created all living things - including humans. Unfortunately for us there was a fallen angel in the midst, whose sole purpose was to usurp the throne of God. (Ezekiel 28). Lucifer was not allowed to remain in heaven. He was cast out into the earth. (Luke 10:18; Jude 6; Isaiah 14:12: Rev 12:7). Bitterly disappointed at his failure, Lucifer would now continue his quest for worship on a new playing field " the earth. If I cant have heaven, I will have the earth and all its people, thought Lucifer " who became Satan or the devil. His desire for revenge would increase his resolve. The art of deception came from the mind of the devil.
