Ten Commandments (20) - Conclusion

So what do we have in the Ten Commandments? Well quite a lot actually.

We have ten standards that all people will have to give an account against when they stand before God on judgment day. These standards are also useful those preaching the gospel, when a description of sin is required. Those who claim to have never sinned and want a definition of sin will find the Ten Commandment quite challenging.

We also have ten principles for life. Resting one day a week and not coveting may not make you holy, but you will avoid ulcers and anxiety.

We have one principle for judicial processes.

We have two sins that are also crimes. Murder and theft are crimes that should be enforced by civil authorities.
