ONE: 'You shall have no other gods before Me.'
That also means that spending too much time on things like computer, video games, and TV is a sin. (Time just really flies by fast for me when I'm on these things.)FOUR: 'Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.'
Working heavily on Sundays is not permitted. He rested on the 7th day, so you working on that day is like you trying to be stronger than Him. That's why the 3 six's is bad because the number for God is 3 and the man is 6 and that's man becoming like god. (Can you believe that I learned that from my atheist friend? She likes to look up these sort of things. And come on people we all need a break.)FIVE: 'Honor your father and your mother.'But if the law is contradicting with the 10 commandments then we can bend it.
Disobeying the rules, laws and regulation is also a sin. That's how we have a gentle society.
SIX: 'You shall not murder.'
Spreading rumors is also a sin because you're killing their reputation. Euthanasia and abortion are sins obviously. And even suicide. They're all going against nature. I know death is inevitable but it doesn't matter that we get there, it matters how we lived our lives. And oh, things that are self-destructive, too, like drunkeness and drug addiction.SEVEN: 'You shall not commit adultery.'
If a man looks at a woman with lust, that's adultery or vice versa. The priest said that teenagers are okay to have fantasies because we're teenagers hormones are sort of out of control just as long as we don't act on it. Haha I guess I only have a year to think.EIGHT: 'You shall not steal.'
No matter how small. I just hope I remember.TEN: 'You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.'
Divorce is obviously one. But I heard that if one is getting physically abused and if one doesn't want to have children then it's permitted. Is this true?What do you think about this list? What are some other things that are sinful that we might forget about?
