The Bible Ten Commandments
Romans 7:7-12 ...'What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet ... Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.'

The Bible Ten Commandments are slowly being erroded away in society today, and even many professing Christians believe that Christ Jesus abolished the Ten Commandments at the cross. Many say that there was one law, which included the ten commandments and the ceremonial laws of Moses. Is this true? Are the ten and the ceremonial Laws of Moses the same, ONE law? Did Jesus actually abolish the divine law? Or are God's commandments, which He wrote Himself on stone still binding upon every person today? Throughout this site you will see the Bible truth on this important issue.
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children." (Hosea 4:6)
So that we are clear from the start, no one can "work" their way to heaven by keeping God's law, and we definitely do not teach that here. The ONLY way we can get to heaven and enjoy eternal life with God is through His Grace, and through Christ Jesus His Son, who died for our sins on the tree at Calvary. Here, we do not keep God's law to be saved, we keep His commandments because we have the indwelling of Christ in us, and it is through the faith of Jesus Christ that we are able to keep God's law.
This is a love relationship between us and God, through Christ Jesus our Lord and Saviour, and we want to obey Him and keep His commandments because we love Him, and because we have Christ dwelling in us day by day. We love God and obey Him, because He first loved us. No one is saved by works, but it's BY our works that show whether we are true Christians or not, because with Christ living in us, we will manifest obedience to the law of God. Remember what the Bible says in the book of James? ..... James 2:18 .....'Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith BY my works.'
Our "works" is what proves our faith in Christ. Anyone can say they have faith in Jesus, but if they do no works and don't strive to obey God and keep His divine law, then what does that show about their faith? Does it not show their faith to be a false one? As it says in James, our faith is shown (proven) by our deeds and our actions. In the last days there will be two classes of people. Those who submit to the laws and traditions of men and receive the mark of the beast, and those who submit to the faith of Jesus which produces obedience to the will and laws of our Creator God, and receive the seal of God. Which camp will you be in?
"A self-denying and commandment keeping life is not the ground, but the RESULT of faith, and not the root but the FRUIT of holiness. The grace of God in Christ is the foundation of the Christian's hope, and that grace will be manifested in obedience." (E.White, Great Controversy)
