LAWS - THE LAWS OF ALMIGHTY GOD

"Teacher, what must I do...?"


THE TWO GREAT COMMANDMENTS

You shall love the Lord your God with your whole heart, and with your whole soul, and with your whole mind, and with your whole strength.

You shall love your neighbor as yourself.


THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF GOD

The division and numbering of the commandments have varied in the course of history. The Catechism of the Catholic Church follows the division established by St. Augustine which has become the Catholic (and Lutheran) tradition. The first three concern love of God and the other seven love of neighbor.

I. I am the Lord your God; you shall not have strange gods before me.

II. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.

III. Remember to keep holy the Sabbath.

IV. Honor your father and your mother.

V. You shall not kill.

VI. You shall not commit adultery.

VII. You shall not steal.

VIII. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

IX. You shall not covet your neighbor's wife.

X. You shall not covet you neighbor's goods.
