The Ten commandments Of the Bible
Are they outdated?
Most Christians do not have all of them memorized. and many don’t even know what they are.


God laid out ten rules for the ancient Israelites to follow, known as the Ten Commandments.

These commandments are still used today as benchmarks of the type of life God desires from His followers.

You might call each of these commands
“stone commandments.” This was one big huge event when it happened

Many Christians have heard about these
Ten Commandments while going through grade school and high school and the story as to how they all came about.
The 10 commandments come to us from Exodus 20:1-17 in the Bible.

The fact that God the Father would give us 10 specific commandments on a tablet of stone tells me that He is very serious about these specific commandments!

They are not called the 10 suggestions,


They are the 10 Commandments.

Many take these special ten commandments for granted and really do not realize the power and authority that is on these special commandments.

And God spoke all these words, saying: “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.



1.You shall have no other gods before me

God should be your number one priority in life
2.You shall not make for yourself any carved image, or 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; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate me, 

but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.

Some people have statutes of other religions and worship them, at least worship what the statue represents,This is idolatry and God does not like this **************
3.You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.

God does not like us to swear, to use his name as a profanity

4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God.

In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates.

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.

The Lord wants us to rest one day a week, put him first. (go to church)
5. Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

This is an Interesting promise of long life by honoring your parents
6. You shall not murder.
7. You shall not commit adultery.

Many Christians’ think there is nothing wrong with having sex with others
outside of marriage,

but God clearly condemns it. As a matter of fact it is a very serious sin that will cause a person much trouble. Best wait till married

8. You shall not steal
not even a little bit
9. You shall not lie against your neighbor.


not even little lies, tell the truth always
10. You shall not desire (lust after) your neighbor’s house; you shall not desire (lust after) your neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

God wants us to be grateful for what we have, not always want more or what belongs to someone else.
The above 10 commandments need no explanation. They mean exactly what they are saying.

It’s quite amazing how many of these commandments are being broken on a regular basis, even by Christians themselves.

If you look very closely at each of these commandments, they really do cover a broad spectrum as to what God is expecting from each one of us. ********************

These 10 commandments are good, basic, moral laws that will help keep us out of trouble with ourselves, family, friends, and neighbors.

God knows what is best for all of us and wants us to live in peace and harmony with one another.

The fact that God would go so far as to have these basic 10commandments manifested on a stone tablet really tells me they are very important, and that each Christian should know what they are and do their best to abide by them.
ith the help of the Holy Spirit.

Feel free to pass this list of the 10 commandments on to your friends and family.

Until next time
