Some people on these threads still don't understand The Ten Commandments. I made this thread so we can get TTC right with everyone. The TTC will come from the Bible no were else and all answer's must come from the Bible also no were else. When we do it this way we can understand it by Gods way not mankind. With this being said let us start!!

(1) Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

Now just what does this mean to you? Open up your Bible read it use your concordance for your answer. You will be better off with a study Bible. I will use a study Bible for the answers on this thread!!

I will get right to the heart of this. Anything that one puts before God, becomes their god.

That means that we can not put our children, spouse, family or friends before God, and Jesus explains this when He sets the guidelines for being one of his disciples.

Also, we can not put our job, sex, science, homosexuality, country, constitution, or even religion before God. When they do this, then they start watering down the word of God and inserting man-made stuff.

For instance, it is impossible to communicate without referencing homosexuality and heterosexuality, but there are no such things. God tells us that there are two groups, men and women, period and in Genesis 2, God's word, He says that men and women are to be joined. Science does not deny this, but some will try to make science a god, and suggest that sin is not sin and that homosexuality is some natural order that God forgot to mention. In reality, they have made homosexuality a god, and put it before God.

The first Commandment,(1) Thou shalt have no other gods before me, is therefore the most important one, because without it, the other 9 have no meaning.

Wouldn’t it be better to say;”You should not worship any sort of fake God like, money, property, authority, the religious, emotional thrills, or other selfish causes; but you should love and respect every human being, your neighbour, father and mother, brother and sister, and not only that but all nature and all animals; love, respect and care for them like you love, respect and care for yourself”.

Please do right by God and keep with the thread. Homosexuality or anything else like that got nothing to do with this thread!! Thank Preacherman01....

Christ pretty much said what you did sans reference to animals :):

Matthew 22:36-42 (New International Version)

New International Version (NIV)

36 “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

37 Jesus replied:“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’[a] 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it:‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

We are not talking about the two commandments of Jesus, we are talking about the Ten commandments in the OT only. I am happy you made this comment because we all need to learn these two commandments also. Thanks The Preacherman01....

Why would you put your god before your family? Surely if you had to make a choice that effected the life or well being of a loved one you would make the right choice and go with your family.

The Ten Commandments can be seen in Exodus 20:1-17.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/...

And the first part of it is all about God; it is so dominant that it is easy to forget all the rest.

Haven’t we seen how some people are willing to sacrifice their family members, fighting wars and doing many other horrible things just for the sake of having what they believe to be the “love of God”.

No wonder that it is somewhat redefined in the NT, but there is still a long way to go before the religious people fully understand what are the most important things in life.

Uh, in the earliest "originals", its "before Us", not me.

Oops!

Even when you try to quote scripture you get it wrong. Shalt is the wrong tense in your sentence. Its "shall have" - not shalt...as shalt is a singular version of shall...so its inappropriate to use as you did...

Although, we could use the shalt, as the commandment was meant only for the Jews, no one else...so in a sense the singular works as it addresses a single group. Not great English, but since Pablumman01 is the Bible expert...he knows best...

It might be that I am wrong, but anyway I would like to explain what kind of philosophy I have on human behaviour and why someone have seen the need for “traffic rules” like The Ten Commandments.
We are basically running after emotions, it is always the initial start of every move we make, it could be all kinds of emotions of good or bad; love, fear, hate, hunger, and pain and so on, the list is very long.
All of this is inherited from our very ancient ancestors and it is basically important for our survival.
But we are also social beings depending on our social group, and the fight or run strategy of most animals isn’t necessarily the smartest thing for us.
The trouble with every single one of us is that logics and reason is a secondary reaction and that it doesn’t always communicate well with our emotions.
We are simply doing a lot of stupid and unhealthy things due to our emotions and we don’t care or mind to bring in the “filter” of reason and logics.
Then we have this inherited emotional mechanism of fear and respect for authority, in the Bible described as God.
But to people like me this is still the fear of a fictive creation, and because it is rejecting reason and logics; then it is still an unhealthy emotionally controlled situation.
Yes we certainly need certain “traffic rules” for our behaviour, but it should be logically and scientifically explained and not depending on old religious myths based on emotions.
It should be logics and heart playing together in harmony.

The Ten Commandments (2) Your answer;

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 forth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments....

This comment spell it right out, don't put image in your churches or home or wear them. Some people have put a cross in there hands when they are praying, that is a image. Do not pray to anyone, pray only to thou Lord thou God only fact! Do not pray to Jesus on a cross that is a image, why is this. For one thing Jesus isn't on that cross He is in Heaven on the right side of His Father. Don't pray to Jesus Mother Mary, she is not a God only Jesus Mother. But you should have high respect for Mary. Please don't think I hate people who does things like that! I do not hate people at all and if anyone tells you I do, they are a liar!!

Greater than the Ten commandments is the Buddhist Noble Eightfold Path.

The Noble Eightfold Path purifies body, speech and mind.

In life we must put God number ONE in our life! In my home God/Jesus/Holy Spirit will always be number one. Yes I love my wife and my family but they know that God is number one with me. And the same thing goes for me, I know my wife loves me just like my family does. But I also know I will never be number one with my wife or my family. Why is this, because that number one place goes to God and no one else fact....

The Noble Eightfold Path explained:

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noble_Eightfol...

If a human being asks what is the highest training in morality, concentration and wisdom and one answers by giving the Ten Commandments, one would be said to be lying -- thus giving false witness and once again falling like Adam and Eve.

If a Christian or a Muslim, Hindu or Sikh try to justify the existence of their religion by lying and saying theirs is the highest truth, they will suffer for their lies.

You might not believe me, but I agree in most of that, but even the idea of a God is a symbolic engagement.
All of these are emotional symbols.
Emotions are of vital importance to us, without it every human activity will loose its purpose.
Then let emotions be our motor but reason and logics together with the kind emotions should be the ship's rudder.
By the way, it is most funny how someone dominated by emotions are granting me thumbs down; unaware of the fact that he/she by that confirms to large degree that I am right!

O' thou Preacherman, art thou really so blind?

Canst thou see and understand the glaring truth as it is clearly and most realistically portrayed in this real-time video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Thus, from the holy movie we learn the truth of the original,..

"15 COMMANDMENTS!" given to clumsy Moses on Mount Sinus Trouble!

You distort the truth by claiming that there were only "10 Commandments."

It is BLASPHEMY to limit god to so few dictatorial orders. Even Hitler had more than a mere 10 Commandments!

Jesus could only come up with "TWO", because he was truly an orders-pauper and did not have the funds for more demands, like Jehovah had.

Please correct your religion, Preacher!
