Jesus summed things up pretty well, didn't he?
After all, the first three of the Ten Commandments regard your relationship with God.
The last seven regard your relationship with your fellow human.
I think so. But his commandments require much more out of people than the 10 commandments did. After all, you can't love and judge at the same time. You can't love and be intolerant at the same time. You can't love and not help the least of these at the same time.

The ten commandments were written in stone for a reason. They are a timeless moral law. They are the essence of the covenant between God and mankind. God later expounded the covenant but that is amendable (like the Constitution) and subject to the times. The ten commandments will never change and are forever valid.

But we need so much more to counter the sect of born again evangelicals who have spread nothing but hatred and fear for 40 years. We need a quick reminder that Christ is about love, compassion, tolerance and caring for the least of these, don't you think?

Yes but not through the Commandments. That would be substituting God's Word for mans word. There is too much substituting of God as it is.
;o)
I agree...don't change them...just give a different part of the Bible...like's Christ's teachings, more emphasis in this world.

This has come up before on other forums and even in discussions on some programs.
Do Christians need to adjust the rules of the ten commandments and focus on some other rules in the bible? If so, which rules? If not, how are all the commandment relevant in today's society?
Are you out of your mind or what? The word of God never change so get use to it dude.

Oh, I know. But for today, in our society where so many of those who profess to love God yet hate blacks, Muslims, Catholics, women, gays,etc., are there new laws and rules from the Bible we maybe should be emphasizing more? HOw about Love thy neighbor as thyself instead of thou shalt have no other gods before me?>
People who act this way haven't grow up yet! You should always love God and no other God. When it comes to gays you hate the sin and love the person. But the word of God does say that sin like this will burn in hell.

There is coming a time when God will write the law on our hearts and everyone will obey it. Religion and politics will be mixed and the government (NWO) will be a theocracy. After the resurrection, there will be one religion and also one language. "For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent" Zephaniah 3:9

You cheat on your husband or wife and you'll probably end up in a court house and pay some kind of penalty or end up in jail.

You give a false testimony against your neighbor in the court of law, you'll probably end up in jail.

You keep coveting and obsessing over what other people have and you'll probably end up doing something illegal to attain what others have which will again land you in a court house and probably in jail.

If person claims to be a follower of Jesus' reformed version of Judaism and bow down and worship idols carved by the hand so of men to represent God, they'll have to deal with God punishing them by using other nations to war with them and destroy them. He did this a couple of times with Israelites when they worshiped idols in OT times. Also, what do you think happened to the Roman and Holy Roman empire? Their look-like-church and it's false doctrines ultimately led to their demise.

Great post. What people fail to see is that the 10 Commandments are the cornerstone of any civilized and structured society. God creates order with them and without them there is chaos.

You are so right......it is like a Nasa missile with precise calculations to get to Mars. 1/10th of the way there, then pilot decides that he wants to change the course slightly, 2/10th of the way, he decides to change it again, 3/10th...etc. until by 10/10th of the way and arrival they find that they are out in the middle of a magnetic asteroid field without any hope of being saved. God then steps in and tosses them a cross for Jesus to set them back on course...truth never changes course...

Ah, but the 10 commandments can't restore the love, tolerance, compassion and help for the poor ACUTELY lacking on our society..only Christ's demands that we love, have compassion and tolerance and treat the least of these as though they were him, can.

No, that's part of the REWRITTEN bible the evangelicals did....and that's the reason for emphasizing Christ's nonjudgement, tolerance, compassion and separating church and state. The Christians in the born again evangelical sect who don't ADHERE to Christ's teachings...NEED Christ's teachings.

You teach this doctrine of loving the poor to get to heaven. It is a false doctrine. It ws Christ who said that the poor we will have always. If a rich girl is raped, molested, stolen from, kidnapped, lied to, deceived, falsely imprisoned, murdered, etc. is she any less harmed than if she were a poor girl.

Christ says that flesh and blood shall not inherit the kingdom of heaven and that all things temporal shall pass. So, why do you concern yourself with whether a man is rich or poor, when his material state has no bearing on his heavenly assignment?
