    Do You Follow the Ten Commandments?

    The theme is for Christians, obviously.

    The Ten Commandments, or Decalogue:

    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.'
    I try to follow them, but I've to confess I'm sometimes guilty of taking the Lord's name in vain. Most often, if I'm amazed at something I say "Jesus Christ, oh my God", or if I'm upset at something, the worst I've said was something that got caught on the tongue from hearing it from angry persons, it would translate in English to something like "screw your mother's Church", and it's very ugly, I think I've only said it twice.

    I've not respected commandment ten a few times. I was envious of what the neighbour had and wanted to have it too.

    Which commandment do you find difficult to respect?

    I follow the Ten Commandments. Whether you are a Christian or not, it is a fact that most modern law is based on the Ten Commandments.

    Undeniably, the adherence of the Commandments as a code of living, represented a "societal epiphany".

    And the simple yet essential fact is that an increasing number of people followed thenceforth the Commandments such that they now form an inextricable part of the modern legal system of most free and democratic societies.

    King Alfred the Great of England (849-899) used the Commandments as a preamble to his laws which, in turn, became an important station on the track of common law history. In an 1825 painting by French master Jean-Baptiste Mauzaisse, Moses is seen receiving the Commandments from God with an array of historical statesmen, including Alfred, waiting behind him.


    According to historical calculations, it was in approximately 1,300 BC that Moses received a list of ten laws directly from God. These laws were known as the Ten Commandments and were transcribed as part of the Book of Moses, which later became part of the Bible. The parable suggests that he received a first set and then broke it when his people ignored its tenets. He then went back up Mount Sinai and returned with the Ten Commandments that we known of.

    I would say most of what is expressed in the Ten Commandments is basically common since, and beneficial to any society or individual that follow it. One of the main reasons many modern societies are currently falling apart is the lack of rational morality.

    I disagree, most “Modern Law” if you want to call it that, is based on Marxism, or at lest socialism.
    Most of this can be lain at the feet of Liberals/Communist, and their various attempts to apply political regimens, which do not work.

    Context is everything.

    The Amish or mormons for example would be successful because their laws apply to their communities, they control and implement them fully. It's no use trying to follow commandments that are not even backed up by the society you live in.

    Having said that, a truely well balanced being defys noone, as true reasoning exists outside of anyones commandments - and all major religions were formed on the idea of true good logic. So i would say yes i follow them. As well as the commandments of all religions.

    Well, yes and no. I'm no Christian, never have and never will be but frankly that doesn't mean I cannot see the good in some of these things. Obviously some of these commandments...

    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.'
    ... are just Christian rules that mean nothing to me and I don't follow them obviously; but then you get these ones...

    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.'
    ... which are just good morals (i.e. not being a murderous liar with no respect for others) that anyone should follow. As for the last one about coveting things... ya I can't follow that. Maybe I'm reading it wrong but I looked up the definition of "covet" to make sure and it means to desire something, or wish you had something. I think this commandment is a bit silly. Its okay to wish you had something someone else has. Its just a normal thing, just don't go steal whatever it is. Its kinda like that rule in Christianity: if you look upon someone with lust you have committed adultery. That's rubbish I think - you can't control lust, its hormonal.

    I'm certainly not Christian, but I was wondering how my sense of self fits into the rule set. Looks like I'm waaaay outside your sphere!
    ONE: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.'
    Um, too late. A Goddess is my focus of integrity, compassion and valour
    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.'
    I don't carve but I do draw, and looks like I violate that all the time by own hands.
    THREE: 'You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.'
    Jesus H Christ! Never!
    FOUR: 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.'
    I have NO idea what that is! True!
    FIVE: 'Honor your father and your mother.'
    I honour my mother only.
    SIX: 'You shall not murder.'
    I would exterminate (murder) sociopaths if I could.
    SEVEN: 'You shall not commit adultery.'
    That means cheating right? Sorry, I'm pretty square. Cheating is disgusting.
    EIGHT: 'You shall not steal.'
    To true, unless it's from a sociopath.
    NINE: 'You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.'
    As above in point 8
    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.'
    Envy and jealousy consumes you if you let it. Best to hug a kangaroo and sit in the mountains. I have everything I need right there.

    What a manifesto from Mouse Shadow! There's nothing good about mocking decency. We deprive ourselves of edification.
