Below are the Ten Commandments given by God to Moses on Mount Sinai —translated in modern English.
These are the only laws that really count! If we add the greatest commandment (see*) and stick to these rules—we will have a future as humanity plus everlasting life in heaven. If not, humanity is doomed. This is not just ‘religious waffle’, it is logic and common sense.
How many of these commandments are willingly disobeyed, how often do governments violate them and promote the opposite in education, media, and society?
The Ten Commandments
- I am the Lord your God: You shall not have strange Gods before me.
- You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.

- You shall not kill.
- You shall not commit adultery.
- You shall not steal.
- You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.
- You shall not covet your neighbour’s wife.
- You shall not covet your neighbour’s goods.
*The Greatest Commandment
One of the scribes came to Jesus and asked him, “Which is the first of all the commandments?”
Jesus replied, “The first is this: Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.
The second is this: You shall love your neighbour as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these.”
The scribe said to him, “Well said, teacher. You are right in saying, ‘He is One and there is no other than he.’ And ‘to love him with all your heart, with all your understanding, with all your strength, and to love your neighbour as yourself’ is worth more than all burnt offerings and sacrifices.” And when Jesus saw that he answered with understanding, he said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of God.” And no one dared to ask him any more questions.
