There has been some discussion at Cornerstone Chapel on the ten commandments. Primarily, it is that most people do not know them. A video was showed that revealed that statically the man on the street can not name them. It is quite sad that these Godly principles can be so easily forgotten. I have copied and pasted the scriptures below....
Exo 20:1And God spake all these words, saying,
Exo 20:2I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
Exo 20:3Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Exo 20:4Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
Exo 20:5Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
Exo 20:6And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Exo 20:7Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Exo 20:8Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
Exo 20:9Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:
Exo 20:10But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
Exo 20:11For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Exo 20:12Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
Exo 20:13Thou shalt not kill.
Exo 20:14Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Exo 20:15Thou shalt not steal.
Exo 20:16Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Exo 20:17Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.
