      I found those online about 14 years ago, they're called the cowboy ten commandments.
  • yes, i know what they are
  • Sure. One thing I have to hand to the SDA and LDS denominations is that they haven't forgotten about keeping the Sabbath holy, whereas other denominations have gotten pretty lazy about that one. In the New Testament, Jesus defended Himself for teaching and healing on the Sabbath, as it was holy work He was doing, and some Christian sects have interpreted that to mean that they can work overtime, go shopping, or do whatever they want on the Sabbath.

      This question was inspired by a conversation with my neighbor. He didn't know it was one of The Ten Commandments. I've been criticized and shamed publically on several occasions because I wouldn't work on Sunday. I've also walked 3 miles before getting a ride to work in the dark hours of a Monday morning because I had to do inventory and weekly paperwork before opening the restaurant that morning. And it was a county road and not much traffic in the wee hours on a Monday morning! But this was an extreme situation because of vehicle issues and I had to hitchhike to work and back for about a month.

      This is because some Christians regard Christ himself as the Sabbath rest. Matthew 12:8 Son of man is the Lord of the Sabbath. Mark 2:27 The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath. Hebrews 3: 7-11 Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says,“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, on the day of testing in the wilderness, where your fathers put me to the test and saw my works for forty years. Therefore I was provoked with that generation, and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart; they have not known my ways.’ I swore in my wrath, ‘They shall not enter my rest.” Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart, leading you to fall away from the living God. But exhort one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end. As it is said,“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” For who were those who heard and yet rebelled? Was it not all those who left Egypt led by Moses? And with whom was he provoked for forty years? Was it not with those who sinned, whose bodies fell in the wilderness? And to whom did he swear that they would not enter his rest, but to those who were disobedient? So we see that they were unable to enter because of unbelief. The Jewish Shabbat is rest at the end of the week starting on Friday night at sundown, and ending on Saturday night when three stars appear in the sky.

      Some Christians are wrong and some interpret the scriptures to suit themselves rather than make any sacrifice at all! I'll keep the Sabbath holy to the best of my ability, thank you anyway. IT IS A COMMANDMENT AFTER ALL!
  • Yes, know them well but as a True Christian I am no longer under any of the Old Testament Law. (Romans 10:4)

      You go looking for acceptance of your perverted ways anywhere you can, then claim that is your scripture.
  • There are actually 13 commandments - it was the church that condensed them to 10 as Christians are superstitious about the number 13.

      What do you mean? Do you divide the commandment about covetousness into three different commandments?
  • The one with Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson or Mel Brooks' version?
  • Jesus said to him, 'You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' These sum up all of the ten commandments, but Jesus was even more strict he went on to say.. Matthew 5:21-22 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment: But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. Matthew 5: 27-28 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Matthew 5:31,32 It hath been said, Whosoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorcement: But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery. Matthew 5: 38 -42 Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto the Lord thine oaths: But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black. But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil. Matthew 5:38-48 Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloke also. 41And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away. Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so? Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

      Yes, the sermon on the mount. Also considered the higher law, for those already keeping the basic ten. I probably would have just provided a link instead of cutting and pasting. So I guess that would be a yes since you didn't actually answer the question (laughing, I do that too!)
