Discussion for Exodus 20

    The 'sabbath' has been researched - by Jesus Himself, no less - Mk. 2:27.
  • A disciple
    We cannot come to God without His guidance and direction and protection; for we would perish instantly in His presence. From the beginning, the word of our redemption and salvation was uttered by God and it is all under His authority that we even be allowed to live. The commandments are for us to learn from Him, to seek His nature as our example, to become like Him; because that's why we are made.

    I have been thinking of replying to your comment but i did't know why. Then later i though of it, your comment makes me feel good. Thank you. I like it, it just makes me feel good.
    Have a good day, keep up the good work.

    Jesus is our sabbath rest. For a Christian every day is a day of worship. Legalism doesn't help further the gospel. Colossians 2v16.
  • Mary johnson
    I believe with every fiber of my being that Gods commandments are true and binding. All ten of them. God does not change. The very one commandment God said to remember to keep holy is the very one MOST do not keep holy. The Roman Catholic church admits that they changed God' 7th day Sabbath to the 1st day of the week. Only God in heaven has the authority. Not any man on this earth. Research it !

    I think that I have it figured out. We should naturally know how to respect GOD; but unfortunately we do not know maybe and i even think that we do not know how to respect others and even our earthy father or Dads. God tells us he will hold us responsible for taking his name in vane because that surely shows disrespect; and He make sure that there is no mistake about this as He is telling you.
