10 Commandments


The 10 Commandments

Were not an afterthought by God, given to the Jews to keep them in line. The essence of the Ten Commandments has always been in existence, because they reflect the very nature and character of God. There are many references in the Bible that describe the Ten Commandment Law.

The Ten Bible Commandments actually reflect the very character of God Himself and are the very fabric of why we were created. To love God with all our heart might and soul and to love our neighbour as ourselves is the purpose of our existence. To desire not to live by the Ten Commandments is to desire to live an un-Godly and unloving life that can only end with one conclusion.

Jesus is Lord

Put your faith in action, proclaim that Jesus is Lord. One of the most striking but overlooked features of the New Testament is the frequency and simplicity with which Jesus is referred to as "the Lord" or "our Lord", suggesting that he is the commonly acknowledged Lord of the entire Christian community. Two random examples will suffice to illustrate this phenomenon. Observe how Paul opens his letters to the Roman and Corinthian Christians. In Romans, his greeting includes an extended description of the gospel, which concerns "Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 1:3), and he wishes them grace and peace "from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ" (Rom. 1:7).

Put your faith in action, and obey the Ten Commandments KJV. The above is a King James Version of the Bible copy. For a King James Version of the Ten Commandments from Deuteronomy 5.

Numbers Chapter 15:15-16

15 One ordinance shall be both for you of the congregation, and also for the stranger that sojourneth with you, an ordinance for ever in your generations: as ye are, so shall the stranger be before the LORD.
16 One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.

There is an ongoing dispute in the United States concerning the posting of the Ten Commandments on public property. Certain conservative religious groups have taken the banning of officially-sanctioned prayer from public schools by the U.S. Supreme Court as a threat to the expression of religion in public life. In response, they have successfully lobbied many state and local governments to display the Ten Commandments in public buildings. Posting the Decalogue on a public building can take a sectarian stance, if numbered. Protestants and Orthodox, Roman Catholics, and Jews number the commandments differently. However, this problem can be circumnavigated by simply not numbering the commandments, as was done at the Texas capitol. Hundreds of these monuments - including some of those causing dispute - were originally placed by director Cecil B. DeMille as a publicity stunt to promote his 1956 film The Ten Commandments. Others oppose the posting of the Ten Commandments on public property, arguing that it violates the establishment clause of the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. In contrast, groups supporting the public display of the Ten Commandments claim that the commandments are not necessarily religious but represent the moral and legal foundation of society, and are appropriate to be displayed as a historical source of present day legal codes. Also, some argue that prohibiting the public practice of religion is a violation of the first amendment's guarantee of freedom of religion.

Genesis 31:27
Why did you run off secretly and deceive me? Why didn't you tell me, so I could send you away with joy and singing to the music of tambourines and harps?

Leviticus 9:24
Fire came out from the presence of the LORD and consumed the burnt offering and the fat portions on the altar. And when all the people saw it, they shouted for joy and fell facedown.

Deuteronomy 16:14
Be joyful at your Feast - you, your sons and daughters, your menservants and maidservants, and the Levites, the aliens, the fatherless and the widows who live in your towns.

Exodus 20:5
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me...

James 1:1-5
1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;
3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
