Imagine a world with Commandments: A Law under Grace

want to take this moment to ask you something that could simply change this world...




By the sounds of the title I have written, your properly thinking well that would be a boring life, I might as we'll be in jail. Let me spell it out for you:

In the book of Exodus we are commanded to do these things, but how many are really doing it...

Exodus 20:2-14,16-17 NKJV
[2] "I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. [3] "You shall have no other gods before Me. 

[4] "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; [5] 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 upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, [6] but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments. 

[7] "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. 

[8] "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. [9] Six days you shall labor and do all your work, [10] 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 male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. [11] 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. 

[12] "Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you. 

[13] "You shall not murder. 

[14] "You shall not commit adultery. 

[15] "You shall not steal.

[16] "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. 

[17] "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."

Now this might look like a lot of writing about stuff that doesn't concern you, well I break it down for you.

1. Do you have another gods before Gods? Buddhas, Popes, Monks???
2. Do you have any carved images of Jesus Christ or Saint Mary?
3. Do you say OMG, or Gosh, Gee?
4. Do you worship God and relax on the 7th day being Saturday?
5. Do you look after your parents, do your respect them?
6. Have you stolen something?
7. Have you murdered someone? Or told someone you hate them?
8. Have you had sex outside of marriage, or lusted or mentally undressed a woman or man in your mind? Or had sex with a married woman
9. Have you lied?
10. Do you lust after things you can not have?

Have you consider that if you break one law, you have broken all of them. James 2:9-10 NKJV [9] but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors. [10] For whoever shall keep the whole law, and yet stumble in one point, he is guilty of all.

And for breaking a law, death is the concequence. Romans 6:23 NKJV
[23] For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

These commandments were not put here for you to have a miserable life. He was doing it because he loves you and wants to protect and guide you through this life Consider this Bible to be a HANDBOOK to this LIFE. Just like in Romans 6:12-14 NKJV
[12] Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. [13] And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. [14] For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

For what i believe head to Tomorrows World for a Free booklet entitled The Ten Commandments
