THE 10 COMMANDMENTS

The following is the law that God gave unto Moses, who thereby gave it unto the people.  These are the Lord’s 10 Commandments, NOT suggestions.  Regardless of the views of individuals throughout the world and history, grave peril awaits any who defy the laws of God.

The 10 Commandments, according to Exodus 20:

  1. You shall have no other gods before me.

  2. You shall not make for yourself a graven 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 or serve them; for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me,but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

  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.

  4. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

  5. Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long in the land which the Lord your God gives you.

  6. You shall not kill.

  7. You shall not commit adultery.

  8. You shall not steal.

  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

  10. You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his manservant, or his maidservant, or his ox, or his ass, or anything that is your neighbor’s.

There is one last and final Commandment.  It is not of the original 10, but was given by our Lord and Savior to his disciples, it is also known as “Christ’s Commandment.”

34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

John 13:34-35
