The Christian ten commandments are still as important today as they were back when Moses came down from the mountain with them. Following the commandments in everyday life helps to prevent carelessness, chaos and cruelty. Many of the commandments are meant for us as humans to live a moral life and others were made laws that are still punishable in the judicial system today.
For many people there is controversy in the meaning of the commandments. Some will view the moral ones such as honor thy father and mother, remember the sabbath day to keep it holy, and thou shalt not covet thy neighbor to be optional. They view them as just ways to live a nice peaceful life. Most people in the current economic state take a more realistic approach to working on the sabbath and do what they have to do to provide for their family.
In todays society if more people were to follow the commandments as they are written the world would be much more peaceful. The chaos that ensues when one bears false witness against another sometimes leads to murder. The act of stealing creates even more chaos and leads to additional commandments being broken.Explore posts in the same categories: Uncategorized
