Most, if not all, of you believe in God. And most of those believe in the same God that I do. Just what kind of God is this that I believe in?? The one Supreme Being that created everything. He is full of love for all of His creation. Everything and everyone in it. He shows His love by rewarding those that follow His commandments. That is all that He asks. Now let's think about that. Are His commandments to harsh or stern? Do they prevent enjoyment? Are they unreasonable?? I really think not. And -no- they were not nailed to the cross... our sins were!!The Ten Commandments as personally spoken and written by God: Exodus 20:
|Now there are some who would say that this is 'old' and only applies to the Jews. Well, that is
not true. The "Jews" are only one of the tribes of Israel. The tribe of Judah. That is how
they got their name. Jew was/is short for Judah. Israel in reality consists of the 12 tribes
which come from the 12 sons of Jacob. It was Israel, the Nation, that was brought out of Egypt
by the Lord. (Remember that Israel is the
Nation and the Jews are only part of it. NOT the whole thing.) Also you will find that many
times in the Bible, bondage is associated with sin.
Sin is defined as; a transgression of God's Law. Transgression is a violation of law. To violate
means to disobey; not follow the rules. He is a jealous God and we are to not put anything
above Him, or in place of Him. Since He is the author and creator of everything it only stands
to reason that He should get ALL of our respect, admiration and worship.
|God is alive and well. He is a living God just as your mother and father are living.
You don't make statues of your parents and then carry on conversations with them ... do you??
Well, the Lord God demands that you talk to Him personally and not some statue. He is all around us.
|When people use God's Name, or the Son of God's Name, as a form of vulgar expression, or profanity
- which are forms of blasphemy.
This is only one way of taking the Lord's name in vain.
The other is claiming to be a Christian and not following the Commandments of God. Merely claiming the
Name of God's Son for one's self does not make one a true Christian.
Third Commanment and Third Commandment
|Now here is where I get the most flak. Right here in God's word we are told to remember the
Sabbath. Which day is the Sabbath??? The seventh... the 7th day of the week. The day we call
Saturday. Why then do so many meet and worship on Sunday?? Believe it or not, this came from the
Pagan practice of sun worship. That is how the day got its name in the first place! Check your own
Bible and please show me where it says that Sunday is the sabbath. The Lord God handed down a lot
of punishment to His nation for breaking His sabbaths. Read the Old Testament. And yes the
Old Testament is valid and important. Those were the scriptures that our Lord Jesus referred to
many times while He was here on this earth. Couldn't be the New Testament scriptures ... they hadn't
been written yet!! The whole Bible is God's Word.
Fourth Commandment and Facts About the Seventh Day
|If this commandment were followed to the fullest there would be a lot of us -not- still alive.
In fact most of the children that I see today would be stoned. That was the punishment for a
rebellious child back in the days when this commandment was first written. It is in the Bible. (Deuteronomy 21:21)
|Prohibited murder, not lawful killing, such as in self-defense, or in defense of
one's nation. But you know, Jesus said that anyone who hates his brother is a murderer....
so be careful on/with your emotions.
|Many of you will say that you have not broken this commandment. Possibly not ... in the
flesh. But, the Lord said that IF you look on a woman with lust you have committed adultery
|Now just what is stealing?? Taking something that is not yours. Not paying for it.
ot legally purchasing it. So, IF you take a paper clip from work ... is that stealing???
Do you know, or realize, how much strife in this world could be eliminated IF everyone
obeyed just this one commandment??? Think about it.
|Lying. Not telling the truth. Someone, somewhere will get hurt.
|Coveting is a strong desire for possession. Such that, action is taken, and the results
are sorrow... eventually for all.
The Ten Commandments as changed by the Roman Catholic Church
Am I good enough?
The Stone Tablets
Should you Obey?
Now many of you have been lead to believe that the "Laws" or "Commandments" were nailed to the Cross and that we are no longer under the Law. Hmmmmm... then we can do anything we darn well please and still get into Heaven??? I don't think so and I really don't think that most of you think that way. What was "Nailed to the Cross" were our sins. Jesus our Lord took our punishment for what we are doing wrong. -But- we must confess our sins and ask for forgiveness. So how do we know that we have sinned??? Well, first we must define what sin is. Sin is a transgression of God's Law. And what is God's Law?? The Ten Commandments.
It is stated in the Bible that God never changes. He is the same yesterday,
today and tomorrow. Now if that is the case then how can we say that the Ten Commandments are no
longer valid?? That is what many are saying. It is said that we are under Grace and not the Law.
Well, if there is no Law, then there is no Sin and we can just live our lives and be happy and merry
and do anything that we want to do. -But- the Lord Himself said:
"If you love me, keep my commandments." John 14:15
Now prove me wrong. Read your Bible and then show me where I am wrong. Don't come back at me with man's traditions. Please come back with something that I missed... if you think I am wrong.
