Q: I'm not trying to be difficult, but if Jesus paid the price for all our sins, then why should we bother to keep the Ten Commandments? After all, the Bible says we can't be saved by keeping God's laws, ...

Jesus said, that he came to fullfill the law not do away with it.And sence we sin unknowingly we must repent daily,and do what he said in order to be saved and stay saved.Repent be baptise recieve the baptisiam of the Holy Ghost.By praying and fasting keeping a close relationship with him, studing his word and applying it to are lives,chapter 12 of romans,by the renewing of are minds you will be keeping the ten comandments.The word says that their is no comdemnation to those who seek after the Spirit and not the flesh.and to think on these thnigs,things that are pure, holy.It is by the price he paid that we can be like him when its time for the great transformation.

Graham answered this within the article
We don't keep the Ten Commandments in order to be saved; we keep them because we want to please God and bring honor to Him by the way we live. Jesus said, "If you love me, you will obey what I command" (John 14:15). The Bible also says, "Just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do" (1 Peter 1:15).

This is one of those complicated topics nobody has a straight answer to.

For one thing there is the 10 commandments, but then reading through the bible there is 100's of things most of us do that are considered sin... but yet again they are not part of the "10 commandments"

For example:
- Homosexuality, Pre-Marital sex... those 2 examples are not part of the 10 commandments but are still considered sin.

I have not had any coffee yet so those are the only 2 things I could think off at the moment.

The Law was meant for a particular people
Psa 81:4 For this was a statute for Israel, and a law of the God of Jacob.

For a particluar time
Galatians 3:19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was added because of transgressions, till the seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.

For a particular reason:
Gal 3:23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
Gal 3:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
Gal 3:25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.

Notice also which of the commandments Jesus does not mention in His conversation with the rich young, and which one was not part of those in Exodus twenty
Mat 19:18 He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness,
Mat 19:19 Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Mat 19:20 The young man saith unto him, All these things have I kept from my youth up: what lack I yet?

Mark's account:
Mar 10:19 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.

Luke's account:
Luke 18:20 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother.

In short, what was carried over from the OT into the new still gets consideration

Yes! they are not mentioned in the ten comandments,but read alittle further on and you will see that it says that it is a abomanation unto the Lord for a man to lay with another man same for the woman.Their are curses mentioned,witch craft,speaking to the dead,wrong for a son to look upon his father.All these things are mentioned in the new testament also,when it is talking about the lust of the eyes,lust of the flesh,pride of life.See it is the things that you put before your eyes,the thoughts you entertain,the way you think about yourself and others.That is why it says in the old test.,as a man thinkth so is he.The things we put into are hearts and minds that make us who we are.

I don't disagree with your point, the issue there is that it becomes so complicated for Christians to follow the rules when on the bible they are not very clear.

But being that they are not very clear there is people out there who know exactly how to alter their definition to fit what ever criteria they are trying to push through.

The fact is, nobody (and do mean nobody) knows 100% what is written in the bible, its has has many translation errors, and bias written into it at a time where many things not understood where seen as sin for that reason... because they where not understood so now should they still be seen the same as it was then?

Very complicated if not impossible to fully understand.

Doesn't one feel awkward/funny to screw the same sex human?

The 10 commandments is a list for our guidance that the dos and don'ts are clearly listed out, so that we may not forget.

Other dos/don'ts that are not in the list should be evaluated by common sense and simple logics.

36"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" 37Jesus replied: " 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' 38This is the first and greatest commandment. 39And the second is like it:'Love your neighbor as yourself.' 40 the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

I know that alot of of people think that the Bible has been tampered with,but To me it is Gods word and he wouldnt allow his word to be tanted just because of it being translated into another language.Remember the in the last book it says that if any add to or take away from his word shell receive the plages of this book.I doint believe that these people lived without fear,and would even dare think to change it.There have been people who take what they want out of the word and use it,they treat it like a salad bar,what they dont understand leave it alone,The word says by reciveing the HolyGhost that you shell be lead into all manner of truth.

the biggest problem is this is your opinion. not much to go on...you have faith that the book wasnt TAINTED, but that didn't stop it...

if god didnt want the book or its messages tainted, why does he allow for so many sects interpreting it how they wish?

Because he said, that if you seek him you shell find ,and so on,but he also said that strait is the gate norrow is the way and very few that find it.I believe that the flood,noahs day and lots day was a good way for the lord to speak of the unbelife and antispirit.It was very few that made it in each of these seens.They laughed at noahs salvation,they were to purverted to see it in lots day. And as you said it is my Faith in Gods word that I receive anything from him or his word.Thinks for chating with you,hope to here from you again.God Bless!

God allows for a lot more than just that.

God allows a great deal to happen in this world.

The reason for that is because God is not going to force anyone to believe in Him.

If we talk about the other side of the coin, that is, that if God DID force people to believe, then THAT is the complaint they would have - "Your God isn't fair! He 'forces' people to believe without giving them a true choice!"

God is "separating the 'Wheat' for the 'Chaff'" in this life. He won't force anyone to be in Heaven who doesn't want to be there.

Christians all claim they are guilty of murdering an innocent human being(jesus) and it has not stop them from killing other innocent women and children, in defense of christ...To believe that accepting responsibility for killing an innocent man, would put an to violence, when its violence that christian believe will bring peace, is like believing that rape would help preserve virginity...And so the ignorance and violence has only increased, and those perpetrating it, justify in the name of god and peace...WAKE UP..

How do you guys deal with the fact that there are so many different religions around the world? Are they all going to hell? Seems unfair to me that just b/c you were born into a family or society that believes one religion, then only those ppl will be saved. What a crock
