Did you know that there is nothing in the 10 Commandments that state "you shall love God".?


The only mention of loving God with all your heart is mentiond in Deuteromony 6: 5 which is mentioned within His Covenant.

    PandN- I was just making a point that many teach that Loving God is the first of the 10 Commandments. They fail to mention that loving God is a requirment under the Covenant, which is a Law. Many thanks.

    Leverstis Steele- Please read Deuteromony 6: 4-5. There you will find in the bible that it is a command to love God. However it is not one of the 10 Commandments. Clearly we should all love God with all our hearts. Many thanks and blessing.

    Jesus was quoting Deuteromony 6: 5. Read it carefully and you'll see what I mean. And yes, it is law. Thank you.

    Deuteromony 6: 5-6 States: 5 You Shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,with all your soul, and with all your strenght. 6 And these words which I command you today will be in your heart.

    So it is a command to love God. Thank you C.V.Rayan

    samsons1- So there is no misunderstanding, I am not saying, suggesting or implying that we should not love God. I am only stating that it is not one of the 10 Commandments as many churches teach or imply that it is. I agree with you. Thank you

    I would have to say if you are obeying the old testament commandments you are saying Jesus died for naught and making yourself subject to the old testament consequences if you break one. Jesus replaced them with two plus grace and mercy

    Eric- Jesus said in Matt 22: 27-28: 27 You shall love the Lord you God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. 28 This is the first and geart commandment. Note that Jesus quoted Deuteromony 6:5. Please read it. Thanks Eric.

    If you will note "love God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your stenght" is Deuteromony 6: 5 as I have mentioned. But still it is not one of the 10 Commandments. Thanks so much for your answer.

    cellafoe- In Matt 22:37 Jesus was quoting Deuteromony 6:5. Please look it up yourself. Mark 12:29-30 is also Jesus quoting Deuteromony 6: 5. These are Laws/Commandments. Thank you

    Rayne123- I should have made it clear from the very start of the question that I am in no way implying or suggesting that one shouldn't not love God. It is most important that we do. I pray that we all will. God bless
