The Ten Commandments  

Old testament Exodus 20

Do not worship any other gods besides me.

Do not make idols of any kind, whether in the shape of birds or animals or fish. You must never worship or bow down to them, for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God who will not share your affection with any other god! I do not leave unpunished the sins of those who hate me, but I punish the children for the sins of their parents to the third and fourth generations. But I lavish my love on those who love me and obey my commands, even for a thousand generations.

Do not misuse the name of the Lord your God. The Lord will not let you go unpunished if you misuse his name.

Remember to observe the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days a week are set apart for your daily duties and regular work, but the seventh day is a day of rest dedicated to the Lord your God. On that day no one in your household may do any kind of work. This includes you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, your livestock, and any foreigners living among you. For in six days the Lord made the heavens, the earth, the sea, and everything in them; then he rested on the seventh day. That is why the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and set it apart as holy.

Honor your father and mother. Then you will live a long, full life in the land the Lord your God will give you

Do not murder.

Do not commit adultery.

Do not steal.

Do not testify falsely against your neighbor.

10  Do not covet your neighbor’s house. Do not covet your neighbor’s wife, male or female servant, ox or donkey, or anything else your neighbor owns.”

* Image on right is taken from a scene of the movie "The Ten Commandments" made in 1956.  Charlton Heston was one of the great actors of our time.  His role in this film was outstanding.  He was born in Illinoise on October 4th 1924 and passed away at the age of 83 in April 2008.  He received the highest civilian award in 1993, the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  He was also the President of the National Rifle Association, an organization we support.  This great actor though will always first be remembered in our family for his role in the Ten Commandments.  Thanks Charlton Heston and your family!
