The Ten Laws
Psalms 1:1-6 KJV - Blessed [is] the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly [are] not so: but [are] like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
Ten Natural Laws
The Natural Law is defined as, “The divine will, or the dictate of right reason, showing the moral deformity or moral necessity that there is in any act, according to its suitableness or un-suitableness to a reasonable nature...” 
One of the land mark documents that defines "divine will" is the Ten Commandments but many people do not really understand exactly what these laws are trying to tell you because of a long history of sophistry.
What does it mean not to have other gods before him?
What does it mean to keep the Sabbath Holy?
Is it about a day or a way?
What does it mean to honor your father and mother?
And what qualifies as coveting?
And God spake
|"And God spake all these words, saying," Exodus 20:1|
|I.||2 I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.||You did not set yourself free from the corvee system where you were employed in Egypt, but Holy Spirit set you free from the bondage of that government of Egypt.|
|3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.||You shall not institute systems where men become "ruling Judges" over you as a substitute for the Holy Spirit of God ruling in the hearts and minds of he people. You are to give no man the power to appoint gods over you to make law and decide good and evil for you.|
|4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:||You shall not make or institute or establish anything to be a substitute for God in your heart and mind like the Golden calf was. You will make no covenants with other gods. You shall have no other ruling judges in the place of God, the Creator of Heaven and Earth.|
|II.||Exodus 20:5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;||You should make no Contracts, Covenants, or Constitution, nor take benefits that obligate you to bow in labor or serve these other man-made gods.|
|6 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.||Once you grasp that these gods are men who become your ruling judges who can then force you to obey their directives through the law of contract, the Bible and these Ten Commandments take on a fuller meaning.|
|III.||Exodus 20:7 Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.||You shall not claim to be under the God of Heaven while you go under the authority of another name, father or benefactors, but remain under the LORD's authority only in liberty and righteousness.|
|8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.||Keep in your mind the principle of working first and then enjoying the benefit of that labor, which is Sabbath.|
|9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:||You will work first.|
|10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:||After you complete the work that earned the benefit, you will take that rest which is the Sabbath.|
|11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.||This pattern of earning first is the pattern of my character and way and name. Keeping the Sabbath keeps you from the debt that makes you merchandise of others wherein you owe your service to another, for your debt is a curse your children inherit.|
|IV.||Exodus 20:12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.||You shall honor your Father by taking care of your parents in love and hope that your children will care for you, rather than to seek the Corban of unrighteousness to provide the needed care in social welfare schemes by force.|
|V.||Exodus 20:13 Thou shalt not kill.||You shall not take, by force nor cunning, any proper part of another Man’s life or liberty. You shall not allow your fierce anger to corrupt life.|
|VI.||Exodus 20:14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.||You shall strive to not violate or defile your body or any part of the body of Christ.|
|VII.||Exodus 20:15 Thou shalt not steal.||You must not take by force or deception the use or benefit of anything that belongs to another.|
|VIII.||Exodus 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.||We must always bear witness to the truth, never doing harm by any falsehood or deception.|
|IX.||Exodus 20:17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house,||You shall not desire the rights nor dominion of others.|
|X.||Exodus 20:17 thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.||You shall not desire power over rights or possessions of other man’s Family. No benefits should be desired that came from property tax, income tax nor any system of compelled offerings.|
- Joshua 1:8 KJV - This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
As you see in the table above, people have tried to group these commandments of God into 10 distinct statements. The Roman Catholics use one arrangement. The protestants have another. The Jews have another. Why is there not one standard way to group them into 10? Consider that the "Ten" is not about a count, but refers to whom the commandments are for. The "Ten Commandments" are the Commandments for the "Tens". They are the blueprint for God's way to live in community with one another, as is the kingdom pattern of Tens, Hundreds and Thousands as even Christ "commanded" in Mark 6:39. They are the guideposts marking God's way so we know when we are straying from the path. We are not forced to follow His way but there are natural and man-made consequences for living apart from God. Just as there are rewards for remaining committed to His way.

Someone named Ron wrote me, "I have little or no religious education. 1. much of what is taught does not seem religious to me.... I am not aware that Jesus commanded anything, but rather he commented upon his observations and claimed that if you know me than you know the father.... "
To answer Ron, or at least to help him see a few things that might clarify what the ancient texts were really saying, I will add a few comments. Much of what we call commandments are really just the statements of God which we translate into commandments.
Jesus did make some direct commands. One of my favorites and commonly ignored is:
- Luke 22:25 "And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve."
This of course was when he appointed the kingdom to the apostles like he said he was going to do back in Luke 12:32 "Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom."
What Christ was doing was teaching and appointing an all voluntary government that operated by the Perfect law of liberty in Free Assemblies through Faith, Hope and Charity by way of Freewill offerings of the people, for the people and by the people.
This is what Moses was doing also. The ten commandments were the The Ten Laws and not redundant once we understand them.
You would think that would be easy.
No one seems to get it that you cannot covet your neighbor's goods, land, labor or anything that is his which cuts all Socialism out of the Christian equation. With these two items alone all forced taxes and social Welfare supported by forced contributions ends immediately if the nation is a Christian nation.
The Essenes read the same book and did not do any of that. We know the Pharisees had it wrong so what were the Essenes doing and what did they have to do with Christ? What Sophistry has been accepted in place of the truth?
If it did not say to do those things, what else did we get wrong?
- Was the Golden calf a central bank?
- Was the Red Heifer even a bovine at all or foreign aid?
- Were the Altars piles of stone or people and institutions of charity?
- What did Religion mean back then or just a few hundred years ago?
Does anyone today even know what Pure Religion was?
Have we made gods of men?
Instead of everyone being afraid to see things a new and repent why don't we seek the truth and the righteousness of God instead of self righteous Bible thumpers who do not even know what the Bible was trying to tell you.
I hope and pray this helps.
