• John 13:34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.*****Romans 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. 9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
  • Anyone who is a true Christian has had all the 613 laws of Yahweh fulfilled and no longer subject to them.(Romans 10:4) If however, you are not a true Christian or not a Christian at all you are still subject to all the laws of the Old Testament completely. As for Catholics I cannot answer as they must answer for themselves.
  • all should obey most of the commandments even if they dont believe in God'!!!!!!!! ~Honour your father and your mother~ 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 neighbor’s goods.
    • Thinker
      Do you know the meaning of adultery as given in Strong's Concordance of the Bible or only that given in Webster's dictionary?
  • Moses did not write The Ten Commandments. God wrote them with His finger. (Exodus 31:18) Jesus Himself said the Law still exists. Matthew 5:18 "For truly, I say to you, until Heaven and Earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished." Now the Mosaic law does not apply to Christians. It is a law of governance.
  • (Note: I am not a Catholic. I *have* read the entire Catechism of the Catholic Church.) The Roman Catholic Church (RCC) teaches that the MORAL teachings found in the Old Testament are binding on Christians, but the CEREMONIAL teachings (such as: eating kosher, animal sacrifice, etc.) and LEGAL teachings (such as: how to punish transgressions of The Law) are not. The RCC considers the Ten Commandments to be a listing of MORAL teachings and, thus, still binding on Christians. *** To see their point of view: by comparison: consider the regulations against adultery in the Old Testament. (Note that I am NOT giving this a full treatment, but what I write is accurate in a limited sense.) The Old Testament (1) forbids wifely adultery (2) AND demands that anyone proved to be involved in such adultery must be put to death. The RCC teaches that (1) (the moral part of the teaching) is binding on Christians and that (2) (the legal part of the teaching) is NOT binding on Christians.
