The 10 Commandments List in Exodus 20:2-17

  1. “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.
  2. “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; 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, but showing mercy to thousands, to 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. 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 male servant, nor your female servant, 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.
  5. “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the LORD your God is giving you.
  6. “You shall not murder.
  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, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.”

The first one is fairly straight forward 1. ‘You shall have no other gods before Me’. Basically, don’t have two Gods, so we can say “Hmm” and move on to the 2nd one where it kinda gets silly. Number 2 is ‘You shall not make idols’ Basically you can’t like anyone? So if you like a sport star or singer, even an actor, this sends you to hell? Please, help me out here. Number 3 is where it gets very odd. Number 3 ‘You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain’ Yet we see it globally every day, we shall skip to number 4. ‘Remember the Sabbath day’ to keep it holy’ If you work on Sunday’s, you are going to hell I think that ones means. Number 5 ‘Honor your father and your mother’ NOT SEEING THIS ONE FULLY to be fair. Number 6 is almost the same as another two really. 6 is ‘You shall not murder’ with number 7 being ”You shall not commit adultery’ I mean surely 6 and 7 are self explicit no? I mean don’t murder or be loving another woman? or man? Then number 8 takes us back to number 6 ‘You shall not murder’ So with 8 being ‘You shall not steal’ Really we could have 3 less and have “Don’t be bad to people” because murdering or stealing from someone is the same thing, don’t murder or steal from me is implicit in terms they send the same message. So we skip to number 9 ‘You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor’ So don’t be a grass, or tell lies about your Neighbours, what if they live in another street? Is it then ok? Now the killer, number 10, now sit down for this one please! ‘You shall not covet’ Now covet means to like. So if you like your friends or neighbours ANYTHING you are going to hell, if you have bad thoughts about another’s God you go to hell, please don’t blame me, it says so, therefore if an American Christian dislikes a Muslim of Islam, they are going to hell right? Right? 😀 These are all strange and simple rules but a bit out-dated for 2016 surely? Who keeps Ox or Donkey’s in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd World? Not many these days I am thinking. I could rattle on here for days with these silly rules made by a guy who spoke to a HEDGE! There was no burning bush, he was walking up an active volcano for the love of God 😀 (Opps, took his name in vain there) Think about it, you are coming back from the shops and a HEDGE says “Brian” would you stop and talk to the hedge or look inside the hedge for a person? Moses had a 1st list of 10 and they were rubbish, so he climbed a mountain, spoke to a hedge on fire and these 10 rules that if you don’t keep to 100% you are going to hell. These are VERY HARSH rules if you ask me, so harsh that if you work Sunday’s, clap the neighbours dog you go to hell? Or if you have a phone and listen to someone singing you love, you to go to hell! For a God who is, we are told, all loving, he seems a rather harsh chap. I mean clap your next door neighbours Dog and you are going to hell. Crazy!

  1. They make perfect sense in the context of reading them and not trying to understand them as in thou shalt not steal not call it business or everyone does it or over price goods or have larger profits instead of putting people first – see in fact they are better suited today than ever before in history my reason to be born at this time … Great post though Ian

    • Some don’t get (Sadly) I am actually trying to understand Religious Faith. I don’t think I ever will have faith in a scripture nobody can prove. I mean a burning bush? 40 years through a desert? To where? lol

      I sent these 2 video’s to a joint friend.
      They said “No thanks” And it’s Eddie Izzard the comedian talking BRILLIANTLY about Moses and Noah’s Ark. Noah’s Ark story is like saying “I eat Ben Nevis to free my People”..It is that impossible. 2 of every Animal went to Iran? I just can’t believe that. I have God but connecting to the rest is impossible because the stories are so outragously stupid… But I respect others will to have faith in the unknown..

  2. Remember my friend – ‘ Things only make sense to those that want to understand them ‘ as with Peter saying to Jesus master many people were not listening to you today and he replied those that God wants to hear my voice listened and those that did not were not meant too – as with us bloggers no different just different time and understanding – read John 1 in Revelations and do not hear the words you read listen with your ❤️

    • Seriously buddy I am trying so hard. You are 1 from many who are actually commenting as a friend. Others see me as hating them. When that hate show’s it’self, all these people are doing is pushing myself and others away from trying to believe. I am a Science geek remember 😀 I need proof. I know God is with me as I had 3 experiences I had no other logical answer for, after I asked God 3 times in 3 separate things, years apart. People who have faith in scripture and that Jesus could walk on water are too easily offended…And my logical head comes into play and I think “OK. This is the Religion and hate in Religion at play”

      Always I need to learn, I need my mind to know. Not think, presume, have blind faith in..I need to KNOW IT…And I don’t think I can. Jesus for me was a good thinker of his time. I think if God made us and we went from Earth to the Moon, God might have said “Well Done” to the World for getting there? I know I am talking stupid but I don’t get this “God will tell or speak at his time”…When people are dying, kids are dying and they scream for Gods help yet they stay in agony for life…Like me…and no relief comes…This is when I knew God didn’t give me this pain, nor can he take it from me. He can’t…Never can.

      Thanks for 2 decent replies buddy…
      We must Skype soon if you got time ..
      The Gym is killing me. Less or next to no Medication is like I am running the West trail in the USA..They made a movie about it…This is how I feel today..But I can see the end in sight. Already weeks of hard moments of work, memories now. I have to see tomorrow as a memory also..

  3. Stop trying it’s not what it’s about its simply just read and inwardly digest understand nothing and in so doing you will understand everything you are trying to get to God your way let God come to you in your understanding not his but realise you have to open the door and inside your head ask him and nothing more .. 🙏

    • Trying buddy, truly I am. But Religion is man made (Human made these days) so for my mind it = Hatred. Watch the George Carlin DVD segment I shared. He says it best. How can “Thou shall not commit Murder” When most wars historically and today, also occupation of others, by others, is Religious. therefore “Thou shall not commit Murder” smacks in the face of it’s very meaning/definition in Scripture alone. I know people who will happily sit and watch kids being murdered to protect their book written by who? How can so many have faith to believe a book? I am stuck in the middle buddy. I don’t think God intended this to be the way. We look at our World and we see 11 countries out of 196 countries are NOT at War or some kind of War. So today as we type back and forward 185 Counties are in or at war of some kind. Be in a normal war, oppression, civil war or any other defining War world.
      Seriously buddy, God never intended it to be this way. I am almost certain of what I feel.
      Thanks for commenting. It’s good to see others taking hard questions on…

    • I read a lot about brilliant minds and 9 times out of 10 this brilliant mind will break people in the end. I don’t know if these minds just absorb too much information and need more when there is no more..Thoughts?
      Again, good comments. I wish others wouldn’t side step and throw hate at these blogs…All they do is prove me right when I say “Religion is almost Evil”..Not God…Just Religion. Religious people will defend their book at ANY cost..Even the death of a loved one. An Australian woman who was 28 years old needed a Blood transfusion and refused due to her Religion, killing her and her unborn child THIS IS RELIGION!? . Her Husband and her parents pleaded with her to take the blood to live…She died…Had kids. That is a mind I can’t understand.
