In our culture, the Ten Commandments have gone the way of Pee-Chees and the PennySaver. Meant for another time, sure—but not here, not now in our connected, post-Christian* society. These days, information moves at the speed of light and archaic rules simply can’t keep up.
Some teach that the Ten Commandments have no relevance to the lives of believers today. But Jesus said, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them”
Look at the Ten Commandments, the first four address our relationship with God and the last six refer to our relationship with others. In normal, everyday life, what might be a strong indication that something or someone is taking the Lord’s place as the center of our life and worship?
