The Actual Ten Commandments

Exodus 20

I am the Lord your God. I am the one who freed you from the land of Egypt, where you were slaves.

Do not worship any other gods but me.

Do not make any idols. Don’t make statues or pictures of anything from the sky, the earth, or the water.  Don’t worship idols of any kind, because I, the Lord, am your God and I hate my people worshiping other gods. People who sin against me become my enemies, and I will punish them, and I will punish their children, their grandchildren, and even their great-grandchildren. But I will be very kind to people who love me and obey my commands. I will be kind to their families for thousands of generations.

Don’t invoke my name when making empty promises. If you do, I will punish you.

Take Saturday off. You can work Sunday to Friday, but the seventh day is a day of rest so don’t go to work—not you, your sons and daughters, or your men and women slaves. Even your animals and the foreigners living in your cities must not work!  That is because the Lord worked six days and made the sky, the earth, the sea, and everything. And on the seventh day, he rested. And what’s good for the Lord is good for you.

You must honor and respect your father and your mother. Do this so that you will have a happy family life.

Don’t kill anyone.

Don’t mess around with anyone’s wife or husband.

Don’t steal.

Don’t tell lies.

Don’t lust after your neighbor’s house or his wife or his men and women servants, or his cattle or his donkeys. You must not lust after anything that does not belong to you.

  1. According to this last post, God should be pretty pissed off at the Muslims for having sex with Goats and sheep and killing people by cutting off their Heads and Lying and taking the Lord’s name in vain and claiming allegiance to a False “god” named Allah, A Moon god. Muslims also do NOT follow the 10 Commandments and work on Saturdays in preparation of killing Christians and the chosen ones.
    Please God, do something to wipe out this plaque upon Mankind in this time of war.Assist Jesus to come back and b ring His Flaming Sword and vanquish all the terrorists and make them all believers in God and Jesus.(Yeshua)

    1. Imagine trying to deliver this speech today. I think it shows the mind of man at work. Anything not on this list should be fine, and there’s not a word about intoxication, eating the wrong diet, or dealing with authority other than your parents.
