• no. i'm sure i haven't. what are they again?
  • No one but God can.
  • No, I have not.
  • They're in the one bible I own. I have kept them on the same pages. I haven't lost them at all.
  • No, but I have kept the Eight "I'd Really Rather You Didn'ts":
  • no i have not i broke number 4 cause i dont go to church and number 8 cause i am sure i have stole something in my life time
  • I try to.
  • I know I've broken a few but, I try.
  • Not entirely.
  • The problem with any absolute moral codes is that they are all open to interpretation based on situations. People reinterpret each and every commandment as they see fit to match their internal morality, making the commandments themselves useless. For example "Thou shalt not Kill". What does that mean? Murder, or any killing? Are soldiers in war guilty of breaking this commandment? If so, most of the Biblical patriarchs have broken it. If someone is in favor of war, they would exempt soldiers. If someone is in favor of assisted suicide, they would exempt that. If someone is a vegetarian, they would consider killing an animal to be breaking that commandment. If someone is a sociopath, they would think it's OK to kill anyone at any time, as long as you think you have a reason for it, or if "God told you to do it". I can honestly say I have broken all of them, and I have broken none of them. It's all in how you choose to read them.
  • No i dont have them, but I think they keep them at the courthouse.
  • I have kept all of them at least once. And I have broken all of them at least once ... at least by Jesus' definition in the Sermon on the Mount. I have been guilty of all of them. I have also been forgiven all of my offenses.
  • When I was a christian, yes.
  • AHAHAHAHAHAHA. Ah, you have indeed been influenced by Ray Comfort, have you not? Ah, I went to the myspace page of The Way Of The Master - saw a little quiz on this! The answer is no, of course not. According to that, I'm a liar for I have lied once. A Blaspher(We all knew that though!). A murder, for I have hated my fellow man. An adulter, which sickened me, because I have lusted. And so on and so fourth. I've broken every comandment, according to the Bible. But I don't care at all. Go on, smite me all might smighter!
  • Just so we all know what we're discussing here, this is the text from KJV beginning with Deuteronomy 5:7: . 7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me. 8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: 9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me, 10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments. 11 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain. 12 Keep the sabbath day to sanctify it, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee. 13 Six days thou shalt labour, and do all thy work: 14 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, nor thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thine ox, nor thine ass, nor any of thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates; that thy manservant and thy maidservant may rest as well as thou. 15 And remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt, and that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence through a mighty hand and by a stretched out arm: therefore the LORD thy God commanded thee to keep the sabbath day. 16 ¶ Honour thy father and thy mother, as the LORD thy God hath commanded thee; that thy days may be prolonged, and that it may go well with thee, in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. 17 Thou shalt not kill. 18 Neither shalt thou commit adultery. 19 Neither shalt thou steal. 20 Neither shalt thou bear false witness against thy neighbour. 21 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour's. ... Most of these require a lot of effort to infract. Others are swept aside with great ease and ignored for selfish pleasures. My purpose in being on this earth is to seek greater compliance, knowing that I will fail, but not to give up hope that I will continue to pursue Christ-like goodness. Right now, I'm just hanging in there, but I'm working on it.
  • No. I have probably broken every single one of them at some point in my life. However, past mistakes should never overshadow present progress.
  • I've never had sex with my neighbours wife...
  • I am a 20-yr. Marine veteran of 3 foreign wars, so I can think of one for sure that I haven't. The rest, I'm working on, but thus far unsuccesfully, I fear. I don't worship false idols, though!
  • wha i have not ever bended one of them . iam as pure as a newborn kitten.
  • Lets see so far I have not killed anyone but I have though of it at times. I can't quite remember what all 10 of them are anymore.
  • I try to keep them every day, but I am an imperfect sinner.
  • Certainly not all at once to my knowledge...
  • NO. Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain. (broken) Remember the sabbath day to keep it holy. (broken) Thou shalt not steal. (broken, but as part of Ninja stealth training, it was returned, taken and snuck back into place with no alarms going off) Thou shalt not covet...any thing that is thy neighbor's (broken)
  • I do my best to, and certainly have not been perfect. I am an imperfect sinner like the rest.
  • probably not, since I am not Jewish.
  • It was sobering to realize I've actually broken them all in thought if not in deed. If we have the sin in our heart, we have the ability to commit the sin in fact. And God knows our hearts. The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. Jeremiah 17:9-10 1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me (do we worship money, sex, power?) 2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth (this is the full commandment and yes, we have graven images galore) 3. Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord in vain. This doesn't mean simply swearing with His name, I can think of a number of televangelists who routinely take His name in vain in what they teach. 4. Remember the sabbath day and keep it holy (in it thou shalt not do any work). Even if WE don't work on the sabbath do we engage in activities that require others to work on the sabbath (eating out, going to the movies, football Sunday?) 5. Honor thy father and thy mother (have you ever made fun of your parents with your friends?) 6. Thou shalt not murder (if you have hatred in your heart for your brother, you are a murderer) 7. Thou shalt not commit adultery (even in your heart so I broke that one in the 7th grade) 8. Thou shalt not steal (does anyone ever avoid breaking this one?) 9. Thou shalt not bear false witness (have you heard some juicy gossip about someone and passed it on?) 10. Thou shalt not covet anything that is thy neighbor's (but let's have an institution like government which produces no wealth provide the necessities of life)
  • I have tried to obey them but then I read where Jesus said that if you even thought about it, then you have alrady done it , in your heart. Good news is that I have been granted grace -God forgives and the forgets- fresh start until I mess up again. That is the whole point of the saviour! We as humans just cannot do it! We too stubborn and self willed.

      Hello Reverend, God does give us a fresh start, although His mercy is not to be mistaken for kindness. Trying to do what's good will enable us to grow maturely. James 1:3 "For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow."
  • God's Law was written for our well-being. It is how we can live a quality life with high standards. Keeping The 10 Commandments is not difficult. We are judged by our actions, but we are also judged by our thoughts in the New Testament. So actually having our thoughts free from corruption is the difficult part for believers. Matthew 15:19 "For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander."
  • No, I try, but I am a sinner, may God have mercy on me.
  • No, I'm human. But I try, I repent, and I'm forgiven. THANK GOD!
