Many are confused by the fourth of the ten commandments, "Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy." Ex 20:8. By going to church on Sunday, some people think they are obeying this command. But that is not the case.
The ten commandments are a part of the Old Testament given to the Jews, prior to Christ death on the cross. Lk 16:16. His death terminated the old testament and established the new testament which is for today. Matt 26:28. Heb 9:14-26. Heb 10:9-10. Col 2:10-17. 2 Cor 3:3-14 The Sabbath isn't part of the law of Christ and one can't keep what isn't the law of God. Rom 4:15. The Sabbath was the 7th day of the week. (Saturday) And on that day, travel and cooking restrictions were in place, and anyone caught working on the Sabbath, was put to death. Ex 20:11. Ex 31:12-18. Ex 16:22-30.
One's word is his bond; so do you complete what you say? Or do you tell lies? Some people lie all day long and they are so good at it, they can smile and cough at the same time. Pro 14:5. Let us not be champion liars, but people who only speak if able to deliver what is promised. Pro 30:8.
Everything that comes out of the mouth will fall on the ears of someone who will be relying upon what has been spoken. And just that fact alone should make everyone determined to make good on what is spoken.
If you don't mean it, don't say it and you won't get in trouble for it. Eccl 5:1-5.
There is just too much of this nonsense going on and too many ruined people walking around because of it. Pro 29:12. Zech 10:2. Ez 13:22. Jer 29:31.
One thing that occurs during the month of December is stealing packages off porches. Those who steal packages from houses are in violation of the command which tells man not to steal. Ephesians 4:28.
Thieves will answer to God. 2 Corinthians 5:10. Those who steal packages also don't treat others as they wish to be treated. For example, if the thief was expecting a package, he wouldn't want someone to steal his package. Matthew 7:12. Those who steal packages make life worst for others and that is in violation of the word of God. Philippians 2.3-5. Romans 15.2
Stealing someone package requires the creation of an evil act and that is sinful in the eyes of God. Proverbs 24:8. To steal a package, means that the person needs to repent and failure to do so will send that person to hell. Luke 13:3. Going to hell is a huge price to pay for stealing a package. Matthew 13:49-50.
If the package isn't yours, leave it alone. Someone did the work and paid the money for that package and that person isn't you!
Ford trucks are built tough says the commercial and we can understand what the Ford motor company is saying. But what would you do if you met someone who said that Ford trucks have no creator? That person simply believes the trucks came from nothing. What would you say to prove him wrong? Do you believe the design features of the truck show evidence of a creator? What about the airbag? Tilt steering? AM/FM stereo? etc? The truth is yes, all these functions are the work of a mind that put them into motion, they have a creator.
Now what about a more sophisticated thing like a human being? King David took one look at himself and declared "I am fearfully and wonderfully made". Psa 139.14. Gen 2.7. David didn't have the knowledge of the human body like we do today, yet he knew that the body was the most complex working function on earth. So why do we have atheist's and skeptic's? If we can see a creator in the design of other things, why not in the creation of man? To question the existence of God is to close ones eyes to the work of his hands which can be clearly seen. Rom 1.19-22. Psa 14.1. 19.1-4. 102.24-28. 104.1-5. And for a bonus, the next time you see a rainbow remember God said such would be a sign that he won't destroy the earth by a flood. Gen 9.8-17
