    When bread is broken,crumbs fall and within these crumbs are clues to enlightenment,God gave very specific instructions,I'd say both before and during the commandments,we could look at him saying NOT to eat from the tree of Life in the Garden of Eden was a commandment,it just wasn't written on stone,it came straight from his mouth,Eve exsistd because Adam was alone,so God gave him what he asked...

    Those who ignore God's standards have to through life with bumps and bruises. They are denying themselves the ability o have the best life possible in this wicked world. Jehovah God pleads with us to follow his laws. He created life so he knows what we need to be happy. If we obey, he promises thing will go well for us personally

    Fundamental Monotheism - Christianity, having emerged from Judaism, is a monotheistic religion. Never in the N.T. Testament does the Trinitarian concept become a "trithism" nor even 2. God is ONE and that God is a single being is strongly declared in the Bible: The Shema - Deut.6:4; 5:7; Isa. 44:6; Mk.12:29. unquote. Only Deut. 6:4 is called the 'Shema'.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The 12 Commandments are rendered here for our admonition, adherence and guidance. Not to be found blameworthy in the Judgement Seat of Christ, we need to seek and earnestly pray for God's Grace and His salvation in order to abide by the dictates of the Commandments. Flesh alone will fail us. Amazing Grace will ensure we resist the devil so it will flee from us.

    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.
