The Ten Commandments - Do You Honor Them?

Watching the news and listening to the radio and being aware of the life that goes on around me made think about our world as a whole. Then I thought about the Ten Commandments.
If people honored these 10 rules that are written in Exodus Chapter 20 wouldn't the world be a much better, easier, more productive place? In MY OPINION, If you look at every thing that is wrong with the world around you, I bet it will bring you back to the breaking of one (or more) of these commandments!




"The Ten Commandments"
  1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
  2. Thou shall not make any false idols.
  3. Thou shall not take the Lord's name in vain.
  4. Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.
  5. Honor thy father and mother.
  6. Thou shall not kill.
  7. Thou shall not commit adultery.
  8. Thou shall not steal.
  9. Thou shall not bear false witness.
  10. Thou shall not covet.
What do YOU think?? Leave me a comment and voice your opinion!!

Peace & Love!

Regina- this is a great post and one that needed to be said. If only we could start to move back to this instead of moving so far away from it. Our society is falling apart because we keep turning our backs on God....we need to turn toward him so things can improve. Thanks for a great post.

You know, these laws of God are certainly foundational to a good life, community and world. They are the epitome of devotion and goodness.

At the same time, the woman that kills after being battered for years, or lies to get social assistance to feed her children, the child that is abused and lies about it to keep from being removed from their home etc.

Applying these very black and white laws to the very gray areas of life is most difficult. Thus, you have God's grace.

What we would like to do in our commitment to God while surrounded by situations that are anything but is a real predicament. You pray, honestly do the best that you can and hope that your service to God is sufficient.

Hello... I tried to drop my card from Entrecard after I saw your card awaiting for my approval and I can't find yours? Do you have it up.
By the way, you have a beautiful family!

We are all born with and in sin. Jesus died for our sins. God knows that we are imperfect, therefore, he gave us his son. While I do try my best to follow his words, and obey the commandments, the fact is that in today's society, the hardest of all of those is keeping the Sabbath holy. Sabbath, in Hebrew, is Saturday. Not entirely sure why we as Christians choose Sunday to worship. In any case, even those who break all of those 10 commandments, as long as they truly repent and truly take Jesus in to their hearts, they will be accepted into heaven. The other nine are very easy to honor.

I absolutley agree. Imagine what it would be like if everyone followed these commandments.

This is a great post. The world would be a much better place. So many people fight against God and Christianity. The only reason I can see why they do is because the biblical prophecy is coming true. Thanks for sharing.

Amy 27 April, 2008 21:43

I really enjoyed this post too. Very simple and to the point. I agree that it is difficult to adhere to all of them although as a Christian (Mormon) I try hard. One we take very seriously as the Sabbath and honestly, I love being free from commercialism for that one day. And it gives others an opportunity to be free to stay at home with their families if I'm not there shopping at their stores. What goes around comes around. Now honoring our parents...that's a hard one...:) Thanks for your Christian reminder!

I think you're right! :)

Here's a thought;
If our world makes it difficult to adhere to the 10 Commandments; how about giving the Golden Rule a try:

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Treat people the way you want to be treated.

Believer 1964 28 April, 2008 09:44

God's laws are a blueprint of what and who we should aspire to be. The fact is that we all sin and fall short of the Glory of God, daily. Even those that are sanctified and set aside struggle with sin. Nevertheless, I am encouraged by His promises:

-that we have access through Christ.
-that His mercies are new every morning.
-that forgiveness is available through repentance.
-that even with our shortcomings we may ask the Lord to touch our lips with coal and enter into the Holy of Holies.

Moreover, there are so many more promises in the Bible that share God's grace and love towards us.

Praying that the "good news" will always take precedence in our lives, but not forgetting to pray and do our part to share the goodness of God.

Leeann 28 April, 2008 21:32

I think you are right...I have some things to work on.

Andrea 29 April, 2008 22:08

I agree with 'mema': if people would only treat people like they would like to be treated...well, that in itself would take care of most of the commandments.

God made these laws for a reason, now if only we would all follow them!

MrsGrapevine 30 April, 2008 23:24

I think people don't realize the bible helps you live a long, full, healthy life.

Gods rules are the way the world would work best. Period.

Great thought.
