  6. I really don’t think this is the way Jesus would teach the Ten Commandments to children. I think it belittles God’s Word.

    • Jeanne, consider the songs in our “Bible hymnals.” Many of them (especially the Dwight Armstrong collection) are Psalms set to music. I’ve learned plenty of scriptures that way.

  9. Nice and fun song. Good job. I have some of my own I composed for my kids during a time they had to know
    Bible memory. I put them down in my composition book and I work on the harmonies. I had someone helping but we are not with them any longer.

  10. Can’t wait for my daughter Paris to see this today on the Sabbath….great timing. Anything that teaches the right way of life by obeying the 10 Commandments would get the tick of approval from God. He has such a great sense of humour and I just hope you can put more out there for the children ‘in the middle’ aged around 9 – 12 years who are not littlies or teenagers. Keep up the great ideas and work.

  12. A great start for the day with God’s Spiritual Law of Love. The film speaks to me directly as an adult seeking the Way of the Lord. My children will definitely enjoy this. May God continue to grant you favour in His work!

  17. The church’s resources should not be squandered on such projects. As Mr. Magee’s bio stated that his lifelong dream was to make comedy videos, perhaps he would be better suited to employment in Hollywood.

    • “Squandered”? I think this is a very good use of the resources available. Children learn easily when information is set to song, and the earlier kids learn the Ten Commandments, the better. If we want the next generation to be part of God’s church, they need to learn why God’s way works better than the world’s way as early in life as possible. This teaches the basics of God’s way in a very memorable manner. I hope that more videos can be made for the young generation.

  18. Our youth are the future of the church. They need to know that God’s way can be fun, and applicable to their lives too; that His people can see humor as well as the serious side of life. Plus this creative production helps kids learn the 10 commandments. So I support it for both the young and the young-at-heart.

  19. The church is blessed to have servants who dedicate their time and talents and creativity that God gave them to share the joy of his law with our precious children. Thankfully Jonathan is not interested in the Hollywood scene and has chosen to use his talents in promoting Gods truth. I believe that God is well pleased when his children delight in his word! Great work, keep it up!

  20. Paul says to talk to people in their language. “the Romans as you were a Roman and talk to the Greeks like a Greek”. The same with children, we talk to them in a language that is easiest for them to understand and retain meaningful knowledge. Children could get turned off and tune out, if it is above their head. This is what children’s minds will tune into. This is edifying and nothing unethical being taught here. For some this may be like sitting in a first grade classroom. If so, there are other means to eat more mature meat spiritually on the UCG site. Cost? It is probably one of the most cost effective ways to draw our children into the church.(Feeling connected with friends that love them, would probably be at the top as well.)
