    I agree with everything you said Manatita44. Most speak of us having to love our neighbor, and forget that the greatest commandment is to love God. Except you, because you know it is

    Eric: The "key" is to be filled with the Holy Spirit which will "guide you into ALL "Truth" (Jn 16:13) which includes the 10 plus more!

    I agree with everything you said except about the Sabbath Most American are out partying on the true Sabbath (Sat) and are desecrating it, so it's easy to keep if you want to

    Agreed! Thank Jesus for Grace & Mercy! That's what the OT showed us that we couldn't keep the 10 or 613! That's why He came, fulfilled the law, and died for the remission of our sins! He knew! Thank you Jesus! Yes, "easy" if "in the Spirit!"

    Have you heard of the Military Association of Atheists and Free Thinkers? I think you would like their FB page. I think the 10 are out of date and the only one we ever need is the golden rule. (also from the bible and many other books.)

    War killing is not viewed the same as regular killing, the same as self defense is different in God's eyes God sent his people to war

    The true Sabbath is the 7th day of rest not Sunday When people party on Sat they desecrate the Sabbath

    I find them easy to keep also, and I'm not even a Christian

    What's funny is the only ones saying they are hard are the Christians, Go figure

    Deuteronomy 5:29

    O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever! Read Deut 6:24

    I appreciate your answer DashingScorpio, but I have to disagree with you here. I think the 10 are easy to keep

    For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous (1 John 5:3)

    So I guess you have never had to work on Sunday or any other modern day things that are necessary, but by default, break the commandments. Or was your comment just "feel good" regurgitation?

    It's harder today, so God understands our sins? NOT true

    From Luke 12:48

    "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required"

    Today's world is no excuse 2 sin Draw close to God He'll draw close 2 U Where there's God There's No sin

    Yes! God=Jesus(I Tim 3:16)/Jesus=Holy Spirit(Jn 14:26)/Holy Spirit=God (Gen 1:2;Jn 4:24)! They are One but All's Name is JESUS! This is a mystery!

    Your's is a great answer too. If we love God first, we see God in others, and therefore love them If we truly love others, we can't steal from them, kill them etc The 10Cs are easy Thank you

    Thank you There's no pleasing God while sinning, and if people can't keep God's laws they should stop claiming to be of God, or Christians

    Question. How do you 100% know that it did not come from god? This is what I'm talking about! People who do not believe in god has the same belief system; trusting in something that the can't 100% prove. Stand for something or fall for everything.

    Thanks Stargrrl. I don't feel that you have to be perfect to keep the commandments, but we have forgiveness if we accidentally sin, or if it is out of our control
