Re: The 10 Commandments


Entrap and control? How do you explain that we all know that it's wrong to lie and murder? Where do our morals come from?
If this were made up, it would be easier to ignore, and Christianity would have crumbled hundreds of years ago.

Re: The 10 Commandments


Then why are there differences in our moral?

For example that "all knot that it's wrong to lie". Many - or even most - people would say it's right to lie in some situations; when telling the truth would cause harm, but not help anyone.

For some moral says that ends justify means, that you may do the principally wrong thing if it results to justice. Others say the moral thing to do is to strickly follow the rules, even when it only resulted to harm.


If moral and conscience have been put by God in hearts of all men, how can we have so many entirely conflicting views on what's right and wrong?

Re: The 10 Commandments


Good questions! It comes down to man's sinful nature, we supress the truth, attempting to sear our conscience so that we can go ahead and sin without feeling guilty.

Many like to claim that Christians are hypocrites. I would disagree. I say that HUMANS are hypocrites, it's not confined to Christianity.

You're right, people will say that it's ok to lie in certain situations, but ask them when it's ok for them to be lied to, and you might expose some of that hypocricy... or more lies.

Re: The 10 Commandments


Maybe so, but there are those who will claim that Christianity is illogical and makes no sense. I believe that is incorrect. They may choose to disbelieve, and there are reasons for that, but Christianity hasn't crumbled in the last 2,000 years. There is more manuscript evidence for the Bible than any other work of antiquity, there are archaelogical finds that back it, and there is fulfilled prophecy within it. And yet people claim that they want "evidence". emoticon
