This week's lesson: Christ's church and the law

It's not 42.

And with all due respect to Douglas Adams, you probably don't need the world's largest computer to find the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything.

No, all you had to do was visit a special place on Planet Earth.

And there in that special place, you would have found a special building.

And in that special building, there was a special room.

And in that room was an even more special room.

And in that most special of all rooms, you would have seen a box made of wood, all covered in gold.

And in that box all covered in gold, there was . . .
  • And not the definitive proof that God exists, that life has meaning, and that all dogs go to heaven when they die.
No, in that box was a list: a list of ten ways to show that you love God and the people He made.

That's it.

And yes, there are a lot more things that we would have liked to know -- a lot more things that we could all wish had been in that box.

But even if the Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe and Everything isn't 42 . . .

It would seem that 10 is good enough for now.
