Do you agree if we obeyed the 10 commandments justice would prevail?
The law is not just, but maybe if we actually followed Gods law we wouldn't be so lost.
Yes. But there lies the problem. God's word teaches that we are incapable of following the law perfectly because of the sin nature in us. That is why we require the sacrifice of Christ.
I totally agree being a Christian that is the truth. For school I did some research on womens rights & I realized if we followed 10 commandments we wouldn't of had to fight for any rights because we would of followed commandment 1 don't judge oth
Obedience is for slaves and the 10 commandments are a children's story. if we all followed the 10 commandments we would simply be a pack of enslaved children. To me that is the exact opposite of justice.
Justice is freedom and free-thought and having mastery over thyself. Justice is the rulebook set to flames.
But we are slaves in this world when we work for the law, but if we believe we're gods children slavery no more.
where do you get that definition of justice? it also sounds like you saying there should be no laws or rules. that would include rape and murder. you're ok with those?
If everyone follows the ten commandments, there won't be any sinners
I agree. It is quite simple when you think about it without over analyzing. The world would definitely be a better place if human beings followed the Ten Commandments: Less crime, less conflict, better relationships, less guilt, less internal conflict and strife, and more love.
No. If everyone obeyed the 10 Commandments there would be no need for courts/justice because no one would be doing anything wrong.
The reality is laws deal with the "shades of gray". For example the 10 Commandments says; "Thy shall not kill"
There is no asterisk "Except in times of self-defense, war, or death penalty punishment for crimes against society."
And yet man made law allows it.
Lastly even the commandments are contradicted when God orders Moses to "slay every man, his brother, his companion, and his neighbor" - Exodus 32:27
There are other instances God supposedly ordered the killing of men, women, and children according to the bible.
Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day is to be put to death.
And he who curses his father or his mother must be put to death.
not sure if you knew, but the ancient hebrew language had 2 different words for murder and kill. the word used in the case of the 10 commandments is murder. its different than killing in that its and unjustified killing.
Sounds like a Clintonism!
Anyone who "kills" women and children is a murderer in my opinion. The bible states God ordered the killing of women and children multiple times. I don't believe he did. Men made that up to take their land.
We'll then we wouldn't necessarily need leadership from men who aren't perfect at all neither woman, we should be following Christ because he is justice. It would be a lot easier because no blaming one another for leading them the wrong route. Jesus worked on the sabath, & the people said the same thing to him, & he answered you guys are no better than me & he was saving someone's life. & the last one you mentioned, I agree you reap what you sew. Like you said earlier through Christ were forgiven, but I can tell you in this next life on earth there will be only one God who created all people and all things & finally there will be true justice.
Yes, absolutely and we can do it.
Jesus taught that if we love God with all our heart, and love our neighbor as ourselves, we'll be able to keep all the other commandments.
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
What's so hard about not killing, not stealing, not lusting after someone?

Do you think the Ten (10) commandments are really no longer useful?What will happen if the 10 commandments are no longer taught in the homes of Americans?.

Are the 10 commandment applicable today? Are they applicable to non-Jews? Are they applicable to women? I ask because the bible says Jesus said one needs to follow them to get into heaven, but when I read them a few things stand out that makes me think they are not applicable to non-Jews or...

Do you believe in the Ten Commandments of God?If so, do you keep the 10 commandments?
by superwags 7 years ago
Why is it constantly claimed that there are only ten commandments in the bible when there patently aren't. There are at least 50! There's 20 or so in Exodus and Dueteronomy each. Is there a reason why mainstream Christianity and Judaism has cherry picked just ten and left out the others?And now, a...

One thing I have always wondered is to what extent people think the 10 Commandments are meant to be absolutely context free, and to what extend they were meant for the People immediately after Exodus and somewhat specific to their needs. I mean, the bit about making idols was important for unity...
