If this has been discussed before, please bring the previous discussion up. I don't do well with computers. The Ten Commandments are not only relevant, but in these times of social "change" a solid foundation to order your life upon. You don't have to be a Christian to use these simple guides as a way of life and many other groups have developed similar guidelines. While I am not trained in the religious field and don't dream of speaking as an authority, these are some of my takes on the commandments and how they interact in my daily life. I would love to hear what others think. 1. Thou shall have no other gods before me. That would seem to indicate that there are some real foundations in our daily life and that the government, educational system, local NAACP, gay and lesbian alliance, etc don't have the right to force us to believe in this months morality of choice. In my mind God has set forth a way to live and many of our institutions wish to replace that way and take his place. We may have to conform to some aspects of their rules, but we don't have to believe them correct or allow them to teach our children that their beliefs are correct. 2. Thou shalt not make any graven images . That would seem to mean that there are some real truths in life and that perhaps "Dancing with the stars" or getting that new car aren't the most important things in life. In my mind the image isn't the problem, letting it dominate your life is. We seem to live in a culture where instant gratification is all that counts and that heroin, pop culture, new car, etc are acceptable short solutions.
