Not Just Part *Ex. 20:1-20

Exodus 20:1-20;NIV
If God’s Word – the complete Word of God, the whole Bible; not just part of It – is valid, then why do some people try to do away with the Old Testament? Jesus Himself said that not one iota of the Holy Scriptures would perish before He returns.
Matthew 5:17-19;NIV
This leads me to the Ten Commandments. Either all Ten apply or not. People cannot just pick and choose the parts of the Bible they like and discard the parts they don’t like or understand.

If God commanded His people to follow the Ten Commandments then don’t you think we should?
The 9th Commandment (do not lie) is no less important than #6 (do not murder) or #4 (remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy – 6 days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day (Saturday) you shall rest and do no work). Why do some Christians say murder is wrong, but adultery or lying is okay? Or I need or want to work, so I will work and not honor God’s 4th Commandment.  The Ten Commandments all have the same weight, so why is #4 (Sabbath Rest) and #3 (Do not blaspheme – misuse the Lord’s Name) dismissed altogether? It is appalling to hear Jews and Christians alike blaspheme! The reason one will do this is because they would rather do what they want instead of listening to Almighty God. Sad – it’s sad for all involved.   No excuses!   There are no excuses!
God forgive us.

Lord, forgive us our sins. Teach us Your Word and help us to follow Jesus. Give us understanding and a desire to honor Your Holy Word. Draw us closer to You, so that You may be glorified, honored, and exalted in our lives. Bless Your Holy Name. In Jesus I pray, Amen.
