You're all Adulterous Thieving Blasphemers!!

    Okay don't judge me on this.. I'm just revealing the answers based on a program I watched called "Way of the Master"

    Really interesting concept regarding the ten commandments. The host of the program (Kirk Cameroon) went around and asked people the following questions regarding the ten commandments:

    1. Have you ever committed adultery?
    2. Have you ever stolen before? 
    3. Have you ever used God's name in Vain?

    If you answered Yes to all three questions that makes you an adulterous Thieving Blasphemer!! No point asking you the other commandments as you're already guilty as charged.

    According to the survey that he did on the streets of America, he said that each and every one of us has broken the rules of ten commandments, meaning if you disobeyed one, you've disobeyed and broken them all!

    So my point here is... we've all broken the rules so no point arguing in here about religion now is there?

      P.S. I like your point.  I argue with religionists because they shun other people (even if they are good people, and are probably more likely to go to a heaven, if it exists, then they are).

        Do all religionists shun other people?

        That's like saying, "I like to argue with atheists because they all disparage the intelligence of other people (even if they are probably more intelligent)."

      Nice try but some people find it easier to argue than to actually write hubs so don't expect it to stop.
      Plus, in the Christian religion you only have to admit that Christ is your savior and ask forgiveness for your sins and you have a clean slate.

        They describe an insecure, jealous entity afraid of losing attention and love(reverence).

        Which in my experience of God is absolutely not the case.

    Welllllll,
    the premise of "all or nothing" really doesn't work, does it? I mean you break *one* commandment and suddenly you're also a murderer? Don't think so.

    All or nothing thinking, (I believe) is one of the common reasons for such arguments in the forums.

    I think the root is that none of us are without flaw or guilt. We usually all agree on that one point. The rest is a crap shoot, it seems.

    But your point about not arguing in the forums is nice. I like that you're a peace-maker. smile

    Jesus said there is not even one who is Good except that one who is God.  Since there is not even one who is Good except that one who is God this world proceeds from beginning to end in a flash of time even though in "Real Time" things seem quite slow except for the "Time Frame" human beings are now living in presently.

    This "Time Frame" as already been seen by God who has already seen all things from beginning to to end.   

    In the prayer Jesus taught his disciples the taught the to pray,  "Forgive Us" for "Our Tresspasses" against others as we "Forgive Others's their "Tresspasses" against "Us."   Jesus instructed his disciples not to do things to be seen by the eyes of men, nor to be thought of as, Good, by men.

    Life is a series of people trespassing against one another throughout their life even if the realm patronizing another person's intelligence.  Forgive & forgive only means one keeps forgiving those who keep trespassing against them and in that manner they will be forgive their trespasses against others.  This keeps a person in the well being of the  Spiritual Circle of Love & Light.

    I have no past.  I have no future.  I only have today.

    I wonder how a human would set up a perfect society?
    I think that if we tried, we would run into stubborn, arrogant people that our  attempts to keep them in check would seem to be cruel and uncaring.  OR  We could take away any resemblance of free will.
        Does anyone really think that they could have done a better job setting up civilization from nothing?

       It is easy to look at anything and see something that is wrong with it.
        It is not that easy to achieve perfection especially when humans are involved.

        Does anyone think that we can establish a civilization as described in the bible from nothing, and not being ridiculed for what is seen as mistakes.
            Could anyone do a better job of attempting to keep Mankind in check while letting him keep any similarity of free will.

           Is perfection really possible when mankind is involved.

    As far as these three questions are concerned.
      To break any one of these commandments is to commit the sin of disobedience.
        If you tell your child to not leave the yard; is it more disobedience if they only go out of the yard by 10 feet or to go past the boundary by 50 feet? How about if they leave the yard by a mile or clear out of sight?
      Disobedience is disobedience.

    1) Religious commandments were given to such of those set of people who had to be guided at the right path at that point of time. Instilling fear is one of the tactics to put them on the right course.

    2) The value and purport of some commandments have an universal significance. They, if followed, will lead to long term peace and happiness. These 3 commandments fit into that category.

    3) All religions acknowledge the imperfectness of man but guide people towards achieving perfectness.

    4) These commandments are to be taken as goals to be achieved in life; any slips in them are worth repenting; any deviations are worth course-correction. Prayer and seeking forgiveness are established practices in Christianity. Mercy is considered one of God's greatest qualities. Don't Christians repeatedly say that Jesus Christ's blood saves our sins?

    5) This said, we should also re-look into the fact in (1) that some commandments are people and time-specific. 10-commandment shuns idolatry, whereas in Hinduism, idol worship is very much accepted. There are countless Hindu saints who started off with idol worship and evolved to become great spiritual masters.

    1) No
    2) No direct stealing. But indirect stealing, yes. (= showing a lesser income to reduce tax; not registering under tax authorities at the right time and them paying bribe to condone the slip)
    3) Perhaps very occasionally.

    Since I am a believer in God, I believe he will forgive me, even if I have done these, provided I repent sincerely.
