Re: The Tens of Commandments

Like WOW! I never thought that I would see the Commandments listed with "I am the Lord Your God who brought you out of Egypt, out of the house of slavery" as the first Commandment anywhere outside of Messianic circles. Just to remind you there are New Covenant believers that keep the seventh day Sabbath and observe the first list of commandments that you give. They are called the "Moadim", God's appointed times.

I also want to point out that God isn't terribly interested in humanistic evaluations of what is moral and what isn't. You refer to giving commandments then commanding Israel to kill thousands. Life and death don't matter much. This was done to purify the land where His name was to be written.

Wow. Killing thousands to write down your name? I guess I'm not terribly interested in Biblical evaluations of what is moral and what isn't then.
