100 Questions on the Ten Commandments

In the fourth century, Satan through the beast power changed one of the Ten Commandments of God; a fact unbeknown to most Christians. With the Second Coming of Christ drawing ever nearer, the enemy has now also in recent times convinced many sincere People that all the Ten Commandments have been abolished and that God and His Son Jesus are responsible for its being “Nailed” to the Cross. Others say that the Ten Commandment Law of God is still in force with the exception of the one that Satan changed many centuries ago. Here are one hundred questions to ask yourself and think very carefully about. If the Ten Commandments have been abolished, how many verses in the Bible are meaningless and should be left out? As you ask yourself the following 100 questions, please remember that your Bible says that God is Holy, Righteous, Perfect, Unchangeable, Just, Kind and Good.

Would God abolish the very Law that Christ died for to make it possible to give grace to the sinner? If God abolished His Law there would be no transgression and therefore no need of forgiveness or grace. Grace is not something apart from the Law; it is necessary. Paul said to the Christians: “you are not under the law but under grace.” Romans 6:14. Then he said, “shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? God forbid.” Verse 15.

Ephesians 2:15; Colossians 2:14-17. The Hand writing of Ordinances are not the Ten Commandments. See also Colossians 2:14-16. The ceremonial law was instituted to show the people what to do when they broke the Moral Law. By their sacrifices they could show their faith in the great sacrifice which was to be offered on Calvary. All the Sacrifices and offerings pointed forward to Christ. When Jesus died the veil in the temple was rent signifying that the sacrificial or Ceremonial law had ended. Many people confuse the Ceremonial and Moral laws.
  64. How could God abolish the Law that has the Sabbath command in it when God Himself ceased from labour and rested on the seventh day, and your Bible says that all who have entered into rest (spiritual rest too) with Him, have ceased from their own works as God did from His? Hebrews 4:4, 9-10. Read and re-read those two verses.

  1. All the texts that mention or refer to the Law.
  2. All the texts that mention the Commandments of God.

  6. All the texts that speak of repentance.
  7. All the texts that speak of Jesus as the Saviour from sin. etc, etc.

If God has abolished any part of His Ten Commandment Law then all the scriptures that speak of the Law as Perfect, Holy, Just, Good and Unchangeable, etc., become absolutely meaningless. “Not one tittle of the Law shall fall.” If we offend in one point of the Ten Commandments we are guilty of all. See James 2:10-12 and Matthew 5:17-19 page.
