Ever heard of the Code of Hammurabi?

The 10 Commandments were not the first set of laws for civilization.

The Code of Hammurabi was one of many sets of laws in the Ancient Near East. Most of these law codes, coming from similar cultures and racial groups in a relatively small geographical area, necessarily have passages that resemble each other. For example, the laws found in the later Hittite code of laws (ca. 1300 B.C.E.) have some individual laws that bear a passing resemblance to those in the Code of Hammurabi, as well as other codices from the same geographic area. The earlier Ur-Nammu, of the written literature prolific Ur-III dynasty (twenty-first century B.C.E.), also produced a code of laws, some of which bear resemblance to certain specific laws in the Code of Hammurabi. The later Mosaic Law (according to the modern documentary hypothesis ca. 700-500 B.C.E.- under Hezekiah/Josiah; traditionally ca. 1200 B.C.E.- under Moses) also has some laws that resemble the Code of Hammurabi, as well as other law codes of the region.

Ten Commandments is good, Noble Eightfold Path is better.

1) right view - freedom from ill will, detached from all views, including religious ones.
2) right determination- to be determined in right view
3) right speech- truthful, kind speech.
4) right action- refrain from taking life, stealing, sexual misconduct drugs or drinks which distort the mind.
5) right livelihood- to follow a lifestyle which allows one to follow the above.
6) right effort- to be watchful of body, speech and mind at all times and destroy evil thoughts, speech, actions as soon as they arise.
7)right recollection- to be fully aware and recall teachings to mind without effort.
8)right concentration- developing the mind for concentration.

I have told you before: Jesus made it 12 - and thus the 12 are all we need, for those 12 encompas the entire Gospel.

1 MARK 12: 30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
2 MARK 12: 31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

- The Gospel is not the way you like to see it: it is the way it is.
- Jesus taught those who follow him only to Preach what he taught them - for they can never Teach you.

- Murder: the unauthorized (by God) killing of a creature
- Killing: the authorized (by God) putting to death of a creature
- Judging: In Christianity, the prohibited 'judging' is to execute a penalty upon another as retribution for their sins.
- CO1 5: 12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?

This is very correct and so, what does this tell you?

I tell you, it tells us this: mankind, from the beginning, knows very well the difference between good and evil, but few, since the beginning, have embraced to exterminate evil within them to devoutly embrace good.

Jesus only reaffirms what was very well known to mankind, yet ignored, giving us two more commandments and a means to salvation.

I have told you before: Jesus made it 12 - and thus the 12 are all we need, for those 12 encompass the entire Gospel.

1 MARK 12: 30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
2 MARK 12: 31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

Means to find salvation: Repent and Baptize in the name of Jesus Christ.

There is too much corporate monopoly copyright infringement crap in the ten commandments: why should a supreme being care whether it is worshipped or not? Why is it scared of competition?

it is rather sad, because here we have people who say the gospels are man made
but, here they are quoting buddhism, babylonian, roman way of belief
man made
you give more honor to men then GOD
you believe what archaeologists, scientists say as gospels
i hope one day you'll open your eyes, ears and most of all
it tells me you would rather follow flawed men,
GOD is the ultimate perfection
GODS word is perfection

Sorry those arent "new" commandments

Deuteronomy 6:5
Love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.

Leviticus 19:18
Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.

Okay: they are mentioned in the OT, but not with the 10, thus we have 12 basics that every christian ought to follow, for so Jesus has ordered.

So, well: you got it right and not. They aren't new, but yet they are newly added to the ten as the first of all and the second of all commandments.

If we count them all, we have 12.

Leviticus has another bunch of commandments and we can read that many that are not exclusively for Jews are encompassed in the 12: thus they are just reiterating.

Really? So taking the lords name in vain, or working Sundays is worthy of burning for an eternity, but not rape, or slavery?
