Ten Commandments - God's Law
The Ten Commandments are declared in Exodus 20 of the ancient Jewish Scriptures. They were delivered directly by God nearly 3,500 years ago...
"And God spoke all these words, saying: 'I am the LORD your God…
ONE: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.'
TWO: 'You shall not make for yourself a carved image--any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.'
THREE: 'You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.'
FOUR: 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.'
FIVE: 'Honor your father and your mother.'
SIX: 'You shall not murder.'
SEVEN: 'You shall not commit adultery.'
EIGHT: 'You shall not steal.'
NINE: 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.'
TEN: 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.'
Ten Commandments - Truth for Our Lives
The Ten Commandments dictate, for many people, absolute truth in how we should live our lives and raise our children. To others, the Ten Commandments represent God's perfect law, which convicts and converts the soul (Psalm 19:7). Are we seriously considering removing them?
