Since Christians are not
under the Law of Moses today (only Jews ever were), we are not under
the Ten Commandments written in the Law. Christians today are to
follow Jesus Christ. Since He Himself reinstated all but one of the
Ten Commandments (the Sabbath), Christians are obligated to obey
nine of the Ten Commandments.
||[#1] Thou shalt have no other gods before me. [#2] Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. [#3] Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. [#4] Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. [#5] Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. [#6] Thou shalt not kill. [#7] Thou shalt not commit adultery. [#8] Thou shalt not steal. [#9] Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour. [#10] Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's. (KJV)
||Then the LORD said to Moses,
"Write these words, for according to the tenor of
these words I have made a covenant with you and with
Israel." So he was there with the LORD forty
days and forty nights; he neither ate bread nor drank water.
And He wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant,
the Ten Commandments.
||...Jesus said, " 'You shall not murder,' 'You shall not commit adultery,' 'You shall not steal,' 'You shall not bear false witness,' 'Honor your father and your mother,' and, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' "
||Jesus said to him, " 'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' "
||For the commandments, "You shall not
commit adultery," "You shall not murder," "You shall not steal," "You shall not bear false witness," "You shall not covet," and if there is any other commandment, are all summed up in this saying, namely, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
|| "You have heard that it was said to those of old, 'You shall not commit adultery.' But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart."
||"You have heard that it was said to those
of old, 'You shall not murder, and whoever
murders will be in danger of the judgment.' But I say to
you that whoever is angry with his brother without a
cause shall be in danger of the judgment. And whoever says to
his brother, 'Raca!' shall be in danger of the council. But
whoever says, 'You fool!' shall be in danger of hell
