The divine origin of the TEN COMMANDMENTS
« on: September 13, 2011, 07:29:10 am »
There are many who make the false claim that the TEN COMMANDMENTS were authored by a human, namely Moses.  But it is quite obvious among those whose souls have eyes to see that they have a divine origin.   For example:  both the penalty for disobeying them and the reward for perfectly obeying them prove that God authored them.  Because both the penalty and reward are eternal in nature.  No man made law could impose eternal penalties and rewards for violating or obeying it.

The nature of the penalty shows they are of divine origin.  The penalty is like none that a human could impose.  The penalty is threefold:  spiritual death (the death of the soul, but not annihilation of the soul), physical death and eternal death (meaning the second death, namely, the person spending eternity future in the lake of fire).  Eternal death! The penalty is eternal in nature. 

The reward for perfectly obeying them is like no other a human could  impose. The reward is ETERNAL LIFE.  Eternal bliss in the holy presence and holy kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ forever.  Go here http://www.tencommandments.org/author.html for more information.What a noble Law!

 That is a very good point. Another thing is that if you properly understand and recognize the abilities and limitations of humans any thought, word or deed performed by a human being can be precisely categorized and judged by one or more of the Commandments. The Ten Commandments do not need any amendments like the US constitution has had and there are no "loopholes" or "ways around the law." The Author of the Commandments must have known the limitations of all humans from that time onward. But He doesn't simply "know" our limitations and abilities, but He created our limitations and abilities. So much technology in the world of today, yet mankind has not advanced himself beyond any of his natural abilities that were placed in the first human and no technology can open mankind's ability to perform outside the Ten Commandments as it has done with manmade laws many times.

 :) You have made some good and valid points.  :)

Let it also be noted, that man's spiritual abilities should be the prime focus since these are what are important in God's sight in man's efforts to keep the law.  Man lost his original spiritual abilities when he sinned.  Since he lost his original spiritual abilities, it is good to note that technology hasn't raised his spiritual abilities to any degree from his totally depraved and fallen state.  And therefore as you rightly stated, man has not improved upon either the original state in which God created him (because you can't improve upon what was perfect) nor has he improved upon his fallen state.  In fact, in a sense, a form of technology was the cause of man's fall.  Satan invented a lie and man embraced this new deceptive technology, and when he did so, he fell from his original state of righteousness and perfection (Ecclesiastes 7:29).
