10 Commandments and List of Sins
I meet people all the time who say they are born again, but have no idea what sin is.
So how can they repent and be saved, if they don’t know what is sin and what is not sin?
The most common sins I see in “believers” is fornication and adultery.
They write in asking for prayer against the problem spouse or girlfriend. I cannot pray against someone’s legitimate spouse when the prayer requester is committing adultery with the mate.
Because of this confusion, I am listing God’s laws and a list of sins, to inform people, who need to examine their conscience.
These 10 commandments are central to all God’s laws. These are moral laws which must be obeyed.
Thou shalt not kill (murder)
Other gods, or idolatry, also refers to ANYTHING that one puts as more important than God. This includes job, family, friends, money, fame, hobbies, sports, pop idols, one’s own ego, etc.
Profanity is a sin.
The Sabbath Day is Saturday, although many have switched to Sunday, and there is some dispute over this.
Honoring parents is required, and talking back to them, mistreating them is a sin.
Killing is actually murder, or the taking of an innocent life. This is the Hebrew word actually used. (We are allowed to kill for food, and defend ourselves.) This also includes slander and gossip, which is meant to destroy the reputation and life of another person.
Stealing can include anything, no matter how small.. People steal things from work all the time. People steal credit from another for a job well done, or steal their reputation. Cheating on tests, or to get things or money is wrong.
A false witness is a liar.
Adultery also includes all sexual immorality, including fornication, any sex outside marriage, pornography, pedophilia, homosexuality, bestiality, etc.
Coveting is wanting that does not belong to you. This includes jealousy and envy. This includes property and other people’s boyfriends or girlfriends, or jobs, or spouses.
