The Ten Commandments in Exodus 20
Moses and the Ten Commandments
22 These words the LORD spoke to all your assembly, in the mountain from the midst of the fire, the cloud, and the thick darkness, with a loud voice; and He added no more. And He wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me.
27 And the LORD said unto Moses, Write thou these words: for after the tenor of these words I have made a covenant with thee and with Israel.
28 And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.
29 And it came to pass, when Moses came down from mount Sinai with the two tables of testimony in Moses' hand, when he came down from the mount, that Moses wist not that the skin of his face shone while he talked with him.
30 And when Aaron and all the children of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone; and they were afraid to come nigh him.
31 And Moses called unto them; and Aaron and all the rulers of the congregation returned unto him: and Moses talked with them.
32 And afterward all the children of Israel came nigh: and he gave them in commandment all that the LORD had spoken with him in mount Sinai.
33 And till Moses had done speaking with them, he put a vail on his face.
34 But when Moses went in before the LORD to speak with him, he took the vail off, until he came out. And he came out, and spake unto the children of Israel that which he was commanded.
35 And the children of Israel saw the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone: and Moses put the vail upon his face again, until he went in to speak with him.
Deuteronomy was quoted by Jesus Christ more than any other book. Think a moment, if you do not know and understand Deuteronomy, then how can you understand Jesus when he quotes it?
# About 71% of the Bible is about government. Deuteronomy and many other books of the Bible were written by heads of state (presidents, governors and kings) not by clergymen.
# ALL of America's social, economic and health problems are cause by the violation of God's Law. ALL these problems are solvable by the application of God's given laws. Other solutions will not work. These laws from God for the good of society are recorded in Deuteronomy, explained by Moses, confirmed by Jesus Christ, taught by the Apostle Paul, rejected by today's churches and politicians.
Two sculptures of Moses are in our nation's Capitol building. One is in the subway for all visitors to see. The other is on the north wall, in the chamber of the House of Representatives. It is directly across from the Speaker's seat. How about that! Christian art in a government building! Of all the men on earth, Moses was the most qualified to give instruction in government. Why? Because, in addition to experience in the governments of Egypt, Cush and Israel. Moses received personal instruction by God.
The legislation recorded in Deuteronomy is inspired and unique. If applied, it would solve all the problems facing American government today. Problems in areas such as crime and punishment, health and safety, economics, inflation, national debt, foreign relations, civil rights, unemployment, race relations, gun control and so on.
Moses shows the citizen, clergyman and politician the only way to health, prosperity, and liberty. Moses was inspired to show us the way to economic and military strength, peace, financial stability, and a plentiful supply of goods and services. The result, the abundant realization of the American dream instead of the present situation that is rapidly becoming a nightmare. When Moses was 120 years old, he gathered his people together for a farewell address. He delivered the message on the plains of Moab at the border of the Promised Land. The Book of Deuteronomy records the words of Moses.
This book contains much more than just The Ten Commandments as given at Mt. Lesson One - Page 1 The Ten Commandments Bible Law Course Moses in Washington D.C. Exodus 20:3-17 Sinai. Moses reviewed and summarized the nations history. He included admonition, counsel, exhortation, instruction and warnings to our ancestors. He repeated certain very important points over and over. He did this to help these people to continue as one nation under God.
Moses urged and commanded, parents, civil leaders and clergy to teach all this as a part of the public education system. Children were to begin with The Ten Commandments. Moses commanded that every man, woman and child receive additional instruction at least once every seven years. (Deuteronomy 6:7, 11:19, 31:9-13)
You may have heard the saying "ignorance of the law is no excuse." It came from these words spoken by Moses many years ago. Today, most of us, including the clergy, lack knowledge about, or have never studied Moses' instruction. And for some unexplained reason the liberal clergy, politicians and bankers go to a great deal of trouble to keep this knowledge from you. http://www.scatteredremnant.org/bible_law_course.htm

In the New Testament, Jesus repeated some of the commandments in Matthew 19:16-19 and condensed them into two general commands in another: "'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."
Here Jesus is quoting the Old Testament, namely Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18 respectively.
The Ten Commandments of Exodus bring you these Bible Verses:
13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,
14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you.
16 Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind.
Martin Luther King Minster
With a national holiday given in his honor, what did this man believe and what were his teachings as a minster? Was Martin Luther King Pro Life or Pro Choice on Abortion? The answer may surprise you. As a minster of the gospel, minster ML King had a lot to say and his teachings surprise many Bible believing fundamentalist. His right hand man, Ralph Abernathy had much to say about his moral life style.
