The Purpose of the Ten Commandments…

The purpose of the Ten Commandments…

The Ten Commandments were given SPECIFICALLY to Israel and converts to Judaism as nine of the ten Commandments are based in the moral law of conscience relevant from the creation of the angels as an arbiter of free will (Romans 2:14-15). Elohim provided aspects of the moral law codified in stone with some specificity applicable to the unique needs of Israel’s children wandering through lands inhabited by pagan tribes worshiping pagan gods and almost continually seeking Israel’s compromise with idolatry; therefore, Elohim gave Israel’s children, the Hebrew Tribes, laws prohibiting behaviors practiced by the pagans surrounding them…behaviors that are especially abhorrent to Elohim and potentially directly impeded Elohim’s eschatological plans He would pursue through Israel; specifically, the introduction of Messiah who was to be a blessing to all the families of the Earth (Genesis 12:3b).

The Ten-Commandments are Israel’s exclusive property though my Messiah did infuse the moral aspects of the Decalogue into His ministry and added mens rea to enhance culpability via the thought life. With that said, the Christian does not cognitively or spiritually seek adherence to laws, rules, regulations, commandments, days, dietary edicts, but the Christian seeks obedience to God’s will through the indwelling Holy Spirit via the conscience via sanctification…(Romans 7:14).
