What are the 10 Commandments in plain English?
The ten commandments, in order, are: “I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt not have any strange gods before Me.” “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.” “Remember to keep holy the Sabbath day.” “Honor thy father and mother.” “Thou shalt not kill.” “Thou shalt not commit adultery.”
What does God think of lazy people?
Proverbs 13:4 – “The soul of the lazy man desires, and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.” The lazy man desires what hard working people want: house, food, vacations, money for college and retirement. But the lazy man’s desires remain unsatisfied, while the diligent gain wealth.
Where are the 10 commandments found in the Bible?
The Bible actually contains two complete sets of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:2-17 and Deut. 5:6-21).
Why are there 2 versions of the 10 Commandments?
One reason is that the Bible actually gives two different sets of Ten Commandments, and they don’t match. In Exodus 20, Moses comes down from Mount Sinai with a set of stone tablets. (This is the most popular version.) Then he gets mad and smashes them and has to go back up and get another set.
What is the first commandment in heaven?
Obedience is the first law of heaven. It was decreed in heaven that all blessings are predicated upon obedience (see D&C 130:20–21; Deuteronomy 11:8, 26–27).
Can you go to heaven if you are lazy?
Yes, assuming they meet the criteria: to enter heaven, one must understand and confess to God that they are sinners, ask for forgiveness by grace given to us in Christ Jesus, have a sincere desire to change their lives, and surrender their will to God’s will.
