The ten commandments are part of the ministry of death. These do not apply to Christians. The only law Christians are bound by is the law of love.
34 But when the Pharisees heard that He had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. 35 Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question,
testing Him, and saying, 36 “Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law?”
37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first
and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and
Loving God comes first, it's the first and greatest commandment, the first 4 laws of the Decalogue observe the first greatest commandment. The second
greatest commandment falls to the last 6 laws of the Decalogue. You are mistaken, the Decalogue is imbedded in the very roots of christianity and it
always has been. Most people do not recognize it because these laws are grafted into our spirits and within our minds beause:
31 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 32 not
according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant
which they broke, though I was a husband to them,[a] says the Lord. 33 But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those
days, says the Lord: I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people. 34 No more
shall every man teach his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for they all shall know Me, from the least of them to the
greatest of them, says the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and their sin I will remember no more.”
Now comes the next question some may ask. Why do christians not keep the sabbath?
The answer is, we do, we keep sabbath everyday because everyday is to by holy and dedicated to our God. Jesus bought us the Sabbath, the Rest at
Golgotha and we have entered into a perpetual state of spiritual rest from our fleshly labors for righeousness. This is what the second covenant is,
no longer do we labor for the Rest, it is given to us by Grace. God's mercy is that he does not give us what we deserve, which is to be destroyed.
Grace is that he gives us what we do not deserve, eternal life. Eternal Sabbath. Now every day belongs to Jesus, who is our God, he purchased us by
Matthew 12:8 For the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.”
So as you can see, every aspect of a christians life is always centered around the Decalogue, which is Divine law. We desire to do these things
subconciously. When you are called out and come to Jesus, your spirit attunes to his will and your desire is to do his will. Granted we sometimes fail
but that is what the second covenant covers, it covers our failures.
