    Is there anyone out there powerful enough to rewrite the ten commandments?

    Since every man have broken them, and is there anyone who could say that they have broken any of the commandments especiallly those priest in high offices.

    No. Even if there was, people are so firmly attached to the idea that no rules or ideas from religion can change that they wouldn't want them to. Whichever way you write the general rules of life, rules will always be broken no matter what.

    Hmmm...it's a toss-up but my vote would be for either Gary Busey or Charlie Sheen.  At the very least their respective musings would result in the 10 Comedic Commandments ;-)

    Any one who knows the ten commandments and does not obey them is rewriting the ten commandments.

    I would rewrite it this way. The ten commandments: nothing have changed just obey them. Since you fail to obey I made a way to redeem yourselves through the blood of my beloved Son Jesus Christ for the atonement of sin. This sums up in a nutshell the ten commandments for human beings living on the earth.

    You don't need to be powerful, you need common sense.

    If I was the supreme creator of the universe, I think I could do away with one of the first four and replace one or two with something about not owning other human beings or raping or having sex with children. But, that's just silly old me and I'm sure it's much more important to make sure no one makes carved images or takes the lord's name in vain.

    Considering that the commandments are laws, laws that should be followed and not broken. So, on that note, governments/lords have and will continue to make new laws/rules. There are now more than 10 though!

    No one can undo what God has done. Christ frees you.

    Someone out there will think they are.

    As far as I can see, no but the Commandments have been broken throughout history, so maybe no one has considered re-writing it as they have already broken them and are continuing to breaking them, remorselessly.  The idea then of finding someone as powerful as God to re-write His commandments doesn't come into the picture.

    As far as I am concerned, Pres. Ronald Reagan spoke these words: "We have not reached the level of obeying the Ten Commandment." They still stand taller than any other moral code. Only "Love God with all of your heart, soul and mind." is above them.

    Um. . . . "no."  I'm not sure that I truly understood your question.

    Here's a guy who made up his own "commandments."

    I believe that God is the only one powerful enough to rewrite the ten commandments.

    what does being powerful have to do with it. the original commandments were written by a person with a good head on their shoulders and i'll bet there are many people like that alive today. the commandments are infallible and they don't all make actual sense so it wouldn't be that hard to re- write them.

    The New Testament is the rewritten form(in a different or improved form) of the ten commandments.

    The Philosophy involved in the Old Testement is Physical,
    but the Philosophy involved in the New Testament is Spiritual.

    Of course there are people powerful enough. Hell, I can change the ten commandments if I wanted to. All that matters is if the general religious population is willing to follow you and whatever messed up ideas you have for them. If you want to eat cheese everyday because that's one of the ten commandments you created, then so be it.

    Spiritually, and seriously however, no. Unless God himself decides to step off his throne and descend from the heavens with a Quill, there is no one on this earth, and I mean NO ONE, who has the right to change His word.

    If I were you (or anyone for that matter), I would not mess with God's Word.    Why would you want to do that/
