Belonging to God – Questions 18-19

Question 18. What are the Ten Commandments?

The Ten Commandments are the law of God. When God gave them to Moses, God said, I am the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery:

(1) You shall have no other gods before me.

(2) You shall not make for yourself an idol.

(3) You shall not make wrongful use of the name of the Lord your God.

(4) Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.

(5) Honor your father and your mother.

(6) You shall not murder.

(7) You shall not commit adultery.

(8) You shall not steal.

(9) You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

(10) You shall not covet what is your neighbor’s.

Question 19. What is the main point of these commandments?

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and strength; and you shall love your neighbor as yourself.
