Don't you think it's about time you learned what the 10 Commandments are all about?

Sadly, most people know little about the Ten Commandments. Few people can name more than three or four of them.

Those who take the time to study the commandments find they're not a list of "Do nots," but are in fact God's guide to the good life—a life full of blessings. That's why the Bible calls them "the royal law" and "the law of liberty."

There's much more to these commandments than meets the eye. They're not just God's way of preventing us from having a good time.

The commandments are designed to protect us, our families and our communities. They're a guide to transforming the way we think, what we do and how we live. They truly are ten keys to a successful and happy life!

Learn how you can begin having a life full of blessings by reading The Ten Commandments today!

Inside this Bible Study Aid ebook:

"Every commandment of God is for our good. Did you notice in the preceding passage that obeying God’s commandments and practicing love are irrevocably linked together in God’s eyes? This is because the commandments define the love that is the foundation for all godly relationships."

"...Jesus spoke clearly and to the point. God’s law has not been abolished, and, according to Christ’s own words, anyone who teaches so is directly contradicting Him and is in serious spiritual trouble."

"It is important that we believe what Jesus and His apostles said about their own view of the commandments of God. Once that is clear to us, then the reasonings of men cannot deter us from respecting and obeying those commandments from the heart."

HASH(0xa2e3b4a4) out of 5 stars Good learning tool Feb. 9 2012
By Steven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book gives a thoughtful look at God's 10 commandments, and it's a good learning tool for a Christian who wants to understand how the 10 commandments are relevant today as we seek to follow Christ. Just like Christ taught that hating your brother is spiritually the same as murder, this book shows how each of the commandments has a deeper meaning that applies to us today.
HASH(0xa2e3b7ec) out of 5 stars they have a very poor understanding of Scripture Dec 8 2015
By Robert Sparkman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This publication was produced by a group associated with the teachings of Herbert Armstrong. Groups associated with Armstrongism include Restored Church of God, United Church of God, Philadelphia Church of God, and Living Church of God.

Their assertion is that the Ten Commandments, particularly the Sabbath commandment, are requirements of salvation, and that those who aren't observing the Saturday Sabbath are under the "Mark of the Beast".. This is a topic which would take considerable effort to refute, but I suggest reading the book "Sabbath in Christ" by Dale Ratzlaff to get a sound, evangelical view on this topic. Dale is an ex Seventh Day Adventist pastor.

I was a member of an Armstrongite group for over ten years as a young Christian, so I am intimately familiar with their teachings. I am now attending an EFCA (Evangelical Free Churches of America) congregation.

Armstrongites should be considered a cult, and should be avoided. The two major reasons why they should be considered a cult are their “God family” doctrine and their “true church” or exclusivist position.

Their “God family” doctrine teaches that the redeemed become fully God in the resurrection, and will join the Godhead. In other words, there will be no difference between the redeemed, God the Father and Jesus Christ in terms of nature. They deny the personhood of the Holy Spirit.

Salvation, to them, is about proving themselves trustworthy to be given the full powers of Godhood. They are qualifying to rule as a God, ultimately over their own planet. They are Gods in embryonic form, to be "born again" at the resurrection. This view is very similar to Mormonism.

They deny the Christian doctrine of the Trinity, declaring it to be pagan. The reality is that their view is polytheistic, and thus pagan, as they assert that there are two separate god beings, God the Father and Jesus Christ. It is also a blasphemous view, as God is unique, uncreated, and alone worthy of worship. Claiming that the redeemed will join the Godhead is blasphemous. The redeemed reflect the character of God like a mirror reflects light, but they will never be the Light; only a mirror.

It is true that the redeemed are adopted children of God, but they turn this adoption into something that it is not.

Christianity teaches that God is one in terms of essence or being, and three in terms of Person. Armstrongism teaches that God is one in terms of family, and two in terms of Person. I suggest reading the book “Forgotten Trinity” by James White to understand the biblical nature of the Trinity doctrine, and to understand the problem with the “God Family” doctrine.

Armstrongites also claim their beliefs are true Christianity, and that the rest of Christianity is a “counterfeit Christianity” teaching a “false gospel” and that those outside of their organizations are unsaved and spiritually blind. They claim that other Christian leaders are “ministers of Satan”.

Their views, like the views of other cults, come from a conspiracy theory view of church history, mainly with the Roman Empire and the Roman Catholic church as the villains in their story.

Like most other cults, their leader Herbert Armstrong, claimed that God raised him up to restore true Christianity. He was a very contentious man. Following in his footsteps, modern-day Armstrongite teachers have a similarly contemptuous attitude toward other Christians and proclaim themselves to be the authorities on Scripture. In-house, they refer to their belief system as “the Truth” just like many cults do.
While their teachings sound biblical at a surface level, if you compare them with evangelical Christian doctrine, their distortion of Scripture is apparent. Their belief system largely rests upon taking Scriptures out of context, implying false contexts, unsound hermeneutics, and a faulty understanding of church history. While accusing others of taking things out of context and being wolves, they are the ones who are doing these very things. I have little doubt that most of them are deceived and don’t know that they themselves are practicing the things that they accuse others of doing, but false doctrine is false doctrine, regardless if they are deceived or not.

I would highly suggest avoiding them, and considering a sound, evangelical church such as EFCA (Evangelical Churches of America), CMA (Christian and Missionary Alliance) or a church associated with 9marks ministry. Each of these organizations has church finders online.

HASH(0xa2e3ba38) out of 5 stars In Depth Look at The Ten Commandments Dec 6 2014
By Rebecca of Amazon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
"Instead of being an encumbrance, the commandments of God light the path to godly love and liberty."

I know nothing about the United Church of God besides that I've read a few of their books which have been helpful to me. This was free so I decided to read it. So I'm not promoting this church by reviewing their book. I'm judging this book by its contents alone.

I found this book to be very helpful to me as it is an in depth look at The Ten Commandments. What this book explains is that we show love to God by keeping his commandments. Unlike some churches that teach that the Ten Commandments are no longer valid, this book teaches that they are still very valid and shows how they are also taught by the New Testament, especially by Jesus.

This book explains why you should not pray to idols and gives great reasons. We are also not supposed to pray to a picture of Jesus or God. (I did this as a child actually or at least I have a picture of praying near a picture). No one told me otherwise. Also this book explains why we should not use God's name in vain. I have a friend who does and told me God doesn't mind. I have to remind him of the third commandment. I never hear anyone swearing using the names of other religion's gods these days.

What I did wonder about however is whether going to church on a Sunday is going against one of the commandments. If you don't go to church on a Saturday are you breaking the commandment? I will have to research this further.

So this book argues that keeping The Ten Commandments is as relevant today as it was in Old Testament times. I think if parents taught these commandments to their children the world would be more peaceful.
