What will happen if the 10 commandments are no longer taught in the homes of Americans? .

Lone you are right, the ten commandments can be viewed as a form of love (ethical love). Without this basic love there can be no advance love in the areas for self or neighbors. For this reason, crime and lawlessness do increase and love goes down.
Rod:Yes "impossible on a physical level" but this is a "spiritual" walk! Gal 5:16.Holy Spirit = Jesus = God = Love! The Bible is a mystery but if filled w/the Holy Spirit, It "guides you into ALL truth!"(Jn16:13)Now that's the world we desire to live
I totally agree. One of the biggest bullies in my sons school who teases him for being a "nerd" sits proudly in church pews on Sunday, and brags about how Christian he is, but the lessons aren't sticking apparently.
Junk you are right, the ten commandments can be viewed as a form of basic ethical knowledge. However, without basic knowledge there can be no advancement in the area where one lacks the basic. Crime and lawlessness has increased and love is down.
I'd agree, but the basics can be gotten just as easily from Dr. Seuss. It is further development which matters in my opinion. Especially in a complex world. It just isn't as simple as it once was. I'm all for more love.
Junkseller you are right, the 10 commandments are basic instructions for righteous living. We see the consequences of the absence of the commandments in news media daily. Crime, divorce, lawlessness are at an all time high. Parents no longer sit at
MM: U said it right "basic instructions" (schoolmaster)! But no one was ever taught to "move on!" It's time the world forget religion & study bible for themselves. Aren't u tired of letting people tell u about Jesus when He left instructions-Rea
The Bible has been changed "adjusted" with almost every translation for the past 2,000 years or longer. About the 10 Commandments: Do you honor the Sabbath Day by refraining from all work on Saturdays?
Robert I do try to keep the Sabbath, but work does get in my way. We must remember that we are under grace not works. Jesus said, if we stride to keep these two of the ten, "love God and our neighbors. " We should be able to follow the other eight
Totally agree with you, Penny. The commandments are a way of life and not meant to be adjusted based on changes in society.
Minister: Do u realize that "the sabbath" was fulfilled once under the New Cov? Who was God speaking to when He said that? Do we live under the Old Cov? The Holy Spirit looks at the "HEART" not "works!" This is a spiritual journey!
DOING what Christ said will bring understanding of grace. Repent, understanding of grace follows. Christ never spoke of grace, learn what He did speak of and you will understand the grace of God. Grace not works doesn't justify behavior we want to do
Rich: The HS (Jesus) "spoke of grace" thru/out the NT thru the apostles as thru us! After HS came, Jesus wrote laws in their/our hearts! Rm 3:31 "...we establish the law..." Not by our "works" but by "faith!" Rm 3:27! I wish the world "knew!" Rd Rm
Not once in any of the gospels did Jesus speak or say the word grace. Follow yes, Repent yes, sin no more yes. Not grace. You add scales to your eyes by mystifying what is written. Unless you do what Christ said you know nothing of His Grace.
Rich: U look at "red writings" only? Didn't Jn:14-26 say He'd send the HS "in MY NAME?" What is His Name? Jesus! IF HS's name is Jesus & It wrote thru the apostles (Jer 31:33, Heb 8:10;10:16), was it not Jesus who wrote NT? THINK! This is spiritu
Don't change the subject, Jesus did not preach grace, until you acknowledge that you will understand nothing of the grace that is spoken of by Paul over a hundred times. Christ said follow Me nothing else. The narrow gate is Christ alone.
Rich: Subj not chgd! Jesus is HS! Wrote thru Paul!(Jer/Heb)Gospels Matt, Mk, Lk, Jn, under law!We r to "Obs ALL things" of the apostles Matt 28:20. Jesus talked thru apostles via HS!Until u understand this u will not undrstnd "Grace" or New Cov!
I think as long as there are Christians and they are doing what God intended them do while they are here that will not happen. It is our job to get the word out to include the ten commandments.
MM: The Ten Commandments are "schoolmaster" to come "into" Christ! Therefore "relevant!" Penny: U "choose to follow..& the ten comm?" James 2:10

Great answer, no one can dispute your comment. However, we must the words Jesus Christ, "I did not come to destroy the laws but to for fill them. In Malachi 3:3 the word God says, "I am the Lord, do not change.....". We must never allow this world t
MM: "Fulfilled" means He currently "puts laws in our hearts & minds" by means of the HS that "guides" us. (Jer & Heb/New Cov) Mal 3:3 corr but "fulfilled" by "promise" (Jn 16:13) under New Cov! Gal 2:21 Blessings!
But good morals are dependent upon spirituality. Without its altruism, civilization would descend into action-reaction, egotism -- "wailing and gnashing." Love (God) really is the answer.
You can be filled with love and not believe in God. Many atheists are fine, upstanding moral people so I disagree. You can also believe in God and be filled with hate. Love/hate are choices that humans make.
What good morals were used to put non believers to death? What good morals are being used to discriminate against homosexuals? Love and god are 2 completely different things as well.
Jag: U know homosexuality in scripture is a no no! U would have to be an atheist to justify those actions! Sex="Be fruitful & multiply!" How can u? Rm 1:18-32;I Cor 6:9-11; I Tim 1:8-10; Jude 7. Love U - hate the sin!
Oh goodie more "scripture" to justify bigotry and hatred. We can never have enough of that. sigh.
I'm a "believer" n Scripture so that's all I have! Either u believe or not! U call it bigotry or hatred but I call It the Word of God! We're discussing scripture here (The Ten Commandments) not opinions! Study! Believe! Have "faith!"
Yes, the Ten were our "schoolmaster," (Gal 3:24), but we need to move on! That's what's wrong w/society, they've never moved on, believing, having "faith" & being filled w/the Holy Spirit which will "guide us into ALL "Truth! " Reason so many vio
Temp: "the impress souls have taken lessons from soc which is not pretty" bcuz they have no one (parents, relig, or ed sys) to move them into the nxt realm - The HS! (Matt 6:33)
And He did "fulfill" the law! He sent 'the Comforter' which "guides us into ALL truth." The Comforter (HS) FAR EXCEEDS the Ten Commandments which were our "schoolmaster." (Gal 3:24)
