  • Nope, I have broken all of them except for killing another person, but it's not commandments keeping me from doing that. No I don't feel any remorse, and no I won't make my peace with 'god' before I die.
  • No, no and no. If god has an issue with it, he can come down and tell me
  • Most people follow most of the 10 commandments. Athiest follow most of them because they are basic rules that people usually follow by default they only ones that apply only to christians are the one involving God
  • No, I dont really follow the ten commandments. So far, I have broken 7 of them. No, I dont feel bad about it; most people actualy brake all of them in a lifetime. Yes, I do plan to make peace with God before I die, or else I would burn forever or something.
  • Yes I will have what is now called "The Blessing of the sick " before I die. I am sure I will have broken a few of the Commandments through my life.
  • Let's see... I've broken some of them. Thankfully not the adultry or idol worship or murder part. As a Christian, I request forgiveness from God whenever my conscience is bothering me.
  • I do not follow them per se. I have broken most and certainly feel remorse for some of the occasions. I cannot make peace.
  • I do not follow commandments, I follow my conscience. When that fails, I try to clean up whatever mess I've made. I doubt that there is any God to make peace with, but I have no problem with him if he does indeed exist. My job is to do my best to keep my own integrity, and try to be at least somewhat helpful to others. That's actually everyone's job, and if they need a bunch of rules guiding them, I don't begrudge them their rules. But an adult who has some miles under their belt does not need a bunch of rules, those are like training wheels. If you can ride, they just get in the way.
  • None because i don't follow any commandments
  • No. All ten. For some things. Why should I make peace with something that doesn't exist?
  • Since God's standard is much more strict than ours, and He says that even wanting to kill someone is the same as killing them, we all break commandments. No one can live up to it 100%. I know that I wanted to kill my abusive father when I was a kid, and I'm sure I'll be held accountable for that. I've lusted after others from time to time, which God says is the same as adultery. I adored my mother, but I've struggled with honoring a father who has not lived up to the duties of a father. I wouldn't let him starve, but I don't want to be around him either. I know that there has probably never been a moment in my life when I have truly put nothing ahead of God. And I've never kept the sabbath well. There were years when I had to work every Sunday. I've never worshipped an idol made of stone or bronze, but I can't say that I've never loved something else too much. I do feel remorse for those things, and I'm freely confessing them before God and before all of you, but I also believe that is what forgiveness is for. We are all works in progress, whether believer or not. God meets us where we are and brings us along at a pace we can handle. I know my faith is much deeper than it was even a couple of years ago. A few years ago I might not have even been able to be honest about my sins. I'd have rationalized and "spun" them. I believe that God can make of me a clean and righteous woman and that He will.
  • Haven't killed anyone yet. Don't plan to either. Kinda hard to make peace with a fairy tale.
  • I read a small story wherein the people start questioning the teachings of a saint when he starts to tell them about marriage and consumation.They do not believe him since he is not married or ever had sex.The funny part of this tale which I read in a holy book was what the people say was right.So how will anyone know the truth if they do not know the false.Since you have some great experiences in life which you feel a lot about so you write about them, similarly those who have never had them gain insight in them.That is what makes great knowledge. The books tell us about things which we can never understand without falling from grace. So in all my past lives I have disobeyed the texts and understood what they stand for only after I have broken all the rules.God has always been with me to make me experience these things and later He has guided me to safety.Remorse is felt only if you do things with full knowledge and control of events but since I have never been the doer the part of remorse was absent. We believe that if the power of attorney rests with someone else then the deed is not your doing.Hence when you let the Lord take charge of your life and He makes you experience all these things then this one is not responsible! I hope you understand.Thanks!
  • I found myself a checklist from Wikipedia. EX = I don't accept it or don't adhere to it. CHECK = The opposite. 1. I am the Lord your God EX 2. You shall have no other gods before me / You shall not make for yourself an idol CHECK (Kind of...I'm an atheist so there are no other gods.) 3. You shall not make wrongful use of the name of your God CHECK 4. Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy EX 5. Honor your father and mother CHECK 6. You shall not commit murder CHECK 7. You shall not commit adultery CHECK 8. You shall not steal EX (I'm sure I nicked a few things when I was a kid.) 9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor EX (I've told lies in my lifetime but to my recollection, none were legally binding and none were malicious.) 10. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife / You shall not covet anything that belongs to your neighbor CHECK So that would be three to five commandments broken in a lifetime. I'm still young so there's plenty of opportunity left, though. I don't feel remorse about any of it - nothing was done with the intent of causing harm and I'm not a bad person. And no, I will not be making peace with anyone or anything supernatural before I die.
  • Eh, I live with what God gave me.
  • I follow laws instead.
  • I've broken all the commandments except killing someone, and since Jesus said that hating someone is the same as killing that person in your heart, I'm guilty of that too. I've already made peace with God, though, or rather, He made peace with me by sending Jesus Christ. Anyone who wants to call God a non-existent fairy tale may do that. I don't care what anyone thinks of me, I believe.
  • '
  • I will just say that I've broken a few of those Commandments in my day .... However; I do believe that I've made my peace with MY God(s) and I will be ok when I make my transition to the other side of life ... I'm kinda looking foreward to it ...
  • I don't buy any of that story so i can't really answer. If you want to count them up that i have "broken" i doubt you can count that high because many i have done multiple times. Peace with god? What god? Where is this god? How do i find this god? Show me god, the real god and not the one in your head and perhaps I can make peace, but I don't make peace with imaginary things...war either.
  • If you are counting on the 10 commandments to be the measure of you righteousness forget it, and if you are waiting on your death bed to make peace with God after a life full of rebellion against Him, well, let's just hope you don't die in a sudden car crash.
  • All of them and mighty proudly too. And for the god dude, naaaaw...I really don't give a rat's ass about him
  • As encapsulated in "The Great Commanment" as explained by Christ (Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, and strength; and love your neighbor as yourself doing unto him as you would have him do unto you.") - I try to follow them ... at least when I'm thinking about it. As to how many I've broken, by their most basic matter-of-fact application/interpretation, I've never broken any except the Sabbath ... which isn't an issue for a Christian. But by their Christian interpretation/exposition, I've broken them all ... as have everybody else. Repentence is a daily and life-long exercise. As for making my peace with God, Christ is my peace.
  • No, I'm an atheist. I follow my own commandments.
  • James 2:10-11 "For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. 11 For he that said, Do not commit adultery, said also, Do not kill. Now if thou commit no adultery, yet if thou kill, thou art become a transgressor of the law." When James says "guilty of all" he doesn't mean that we have violated every command, rather we have violated the laws unity. One transgression makes fulfilling the law's most basic commands--------to love God perfectly and to love your neighbor as yourself------impossible. Because it is impossible, we are no longer under the Old system of Law. In place of the Old Testament law, we are under the law of Christ (Galatians 6:2), which is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind…and to love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39). If we obey those two commands, we will be fulfilling all that Christ requires of us: “All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments” (Matthew 22:40). Now, this does not mean the Old Testament law is irrelevant today. Many of the commands in the Old Testament law fall into the categories of “loving God” and “loving your neighbor.” The Old Testament law can be a good guidepost for knowing how to love God and knowing what goes into loving your neighbor. At the same time, to say that the Old Testament law applies to Christians today is incorrect. The Old Testament law is a unit (James 2:10 as noted above). Either all of it applies, or none of it applies. If Christ fulfilled some it, such as the sacrificial system, He fulfilled all of it. This is love for God: to obey his commands. And his commands are not burdensome” (1 John 5:3). The Ten Commandments were essentially a summary of the entire Old Testament law. Nine of the Ten Commandments are clearly repeated in the New Testament (all except the command to observe the Sabbath day). In light of the above, we should feel remorse for any sin that we commit. What we have to remember is that Jesus came to save this world from the Lake Of Fire. That can be accomplished if you repent and believe on the name of Christ. He also came to fulfill the Law. When the curtain in the temple ripped in two at His death, when then gained access to God directly through Jesus Christ. Jesus was the last sacrifice. If we sin, we have an advocate with Jesus Christ. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
  • I make my human effort to obey the Ten Commandments, but often I fail. To have no other gods before Him is tough to maintain in this world so full of temptations. I mess up for awhile and then come back. To lust (adultery) and to hate (murder) are not temptations I have mastered yet. I think I am gradually learning to be less lustful and less hating. I have to work on not coveting other peoples fancy automobiles, golf clubs, etc. too. I feel remorse, because God's way is obviously the best, and I am falling short. I make my peace with God as I go along; I wouldn't wait until the end.
  • I try to make peace with God every second of my life; I never know when the LAST second is IT!!!!!!!!!!
  • Not as a complete entity, although some of them are universal in nature like not killing. Even thought some are not applicable, I'm sure I have broken at least 3. Some i feel remorseful for (stealing) and others, I could care less about like keeping the Sabbath holy. Can't make peace with someone who I don't believe in.
  • I've broken most of them, I'd say. Surely I've broken all of the first three, and I know that I've stolen a number of things. I do respect my parents, but only because I think they deserve it. If they didn't, then I would not respect them. Don't know if that counts or not, though. I don't feel any remorse for these things. As an atheist, I don't really care what God thinks, but I'm probably enough of a pussy to convert the moment before I die. My parents would bury me as a Catholic anyway, so why not?
