Exodus 20:1-17, Deuteronomy 5:6-21, NIV Bible and God, spoke all these words:

"I am the Lord, your God who brought you out of Egypt out of the land of slavery.

"1. You shall have no other gods before me.

"2. You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them, for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the chilodren for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to 1,000 generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

"3. You shall not misuse the name of the Lord, your God, for the Lord will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses His name.

"4. Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the Lord, your God.

"On it, you shall not do any work, neither your nor your son or daughter nor your manservant or maidservant nor your animals nor the alien within your gates.

"For in six days, the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, but He rested on the seventh day. Therefore, the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

"5. Honor your father and your mother so that you may live long in the land the Lord God is giving you.

"6. You shall not murder.

"7. You shall not commit adultery.

"8. You shall not steal.

"9. You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

"10. You shall not covet your neighbor's house. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife, or his manservant or maidservant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor."

Where is God in your life?

    Betty, you fail to make any points here. The bible is the biggest seller of all time. Anyone who cares, has read it.Did you really need to write into the paper and repost them?

    It baffles me that the commandments make no mention of prohibiting slavery, giving women equal rights, or just being nice to each other.And yet, issues such as gay marriage, abortion, healthcare, and condoms were not important enough to God to make it onto this list, yet many Christians have zealot-like passion about how these issues should be resolved.

    How can someone "keep" these commandments without honoring the 7th day (Saturday) as Sabbath? Most Christian folks conveniently overlook that one, unless they are Jewish or other 7th day Sabbbath-keepers. It just baffles me that this is seldom addressed.

    It's about time someone was brave enough to post these wonderful commandments.The first 4 are all about our love to God and the other 6 are love to one another.
