Discussion for Deuteronomy 5

  • Larry Ashmore
    The main thing i understand from the Lord God is he wants us to do his commanments and keep the sabbath holy which i see today that most people don,t, love the Love with all your heart and soul and worship no other God,s or idols, fore our true God is a jealous God, fore those who disobey the wrath of God is severe.

    Absolutely right. The ten commandments have always be in effect. They're written on the tables of the hearts of man. It's how we come to repent and to be saved. They have always been around. For example, Cain knew it was a sin to murder and he was alive way before Moses. So, people who forsake the law, are disobedient to God and it makes me question the validity of their salvation.
  • Rsol
    I think He did fulfill the 10 commandments. And new covenant is better than the old Hebrews 8 and the new is not pertaining to the old (vrs 9) and the big ten is referred to as the ministry of death and condemnation in 1 Corp 3:6-11. But mixing the two covenants is like mixing cold and hot or like mixing old wines kins and new wine.
  • Enrique Small
    He stated 'The law', singular. There is a difference to stating 'laws', plural. We have to be careful with things like that.
  • Rich
    If you mean that the ten commandments are in effect in order to be saved, the bible is clear that only through faith in Jesus Christ and his death on the cross resolves our sin debt. Jesus I believe gave us the law to show mankind that we are all sinners and we require a sinless savior the other reason in by keeping his commandments we show our god given love for others. partial answer!
  • Maria Sanabria
    I believe that the ten commandments are still in affect sine Jesus said, He did not come to destroyed the laws or the Prophets. What do you think?
