    A.W. Tozer says in The Knowledge of the Holy, "What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us."The Ten Commandments are still relevant 3, years after. Why? Because the Ten Commandments forbid those things and men will be judged finally by this law. Not one single person will be admitted into heaven who is WILFULLY violating any one of the Ten Commandments because breaking one of the Ten Commandments is breaking them all. We find a good example of this in Exodus

    We have written a complete guide to the 10 Commandments below including full Scripture passages, helpful articles and videos, and a short summary list. Summary of the Ten Commandments: Do not have any other gods before God; Do not make yourself an idol; Do not take the Lord's name in vain; Remember the Sabbath Day and keep it holy.   Obedience to God begins with accepting the Ten Commandments as the permanent standard for our values and behavior. But our obedience must extend beyond just keeping the Ten Commandments. Jesus also said: “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets.

    Newsweek did a poll once that showed only 49 percent of all Protestants and 44 percent of all Catholics could name even four of the Ten Commandments. The Ten Commandments are just as important to you today as they were to the Israelites centuries ago because the Commandments are God’s method for liberating us to experience blessings we could. Do We Still Need The Ten Commandments Today? The 10 commandments are as valid today as they ever were, because they deal with unchangeable things. They are vital for the happiness and well=being of society. However they were never meant to be the means of righteousness. They are a declaration of what righteousness actually is.

The wonderful, transforming truth is that, if we lean back upon the mighty, refreshing, indwelling, conquering life of Jesus Christ within us, quietly counting on him to live and work through us to do all that needs to be done, we no longer need the written code of the Ten Commandments, or any other code, to direct our conduct because, as Paul.

Paul is instructing us that we, as believers, need to live apart from the Law (which here includes the Ten Commandments) to find any real victory over sin. We need to trust the indwelling Christ.

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).

Why not just summarize them by saying, “Love God and love your neighbor”? Summaries can be appealing, yet in society as well as some religions, the making (or changing) of laws seems to have no end.The ten commandments were part of the Law of Moses, which was given to Israel and which had to be obeyed completely in order to find righteousness with God.
