Les ordonnances de Dieu pour la sainteté

Déverrouiller les dix commandements pour les chrétiens du XXIe siècle

Pris au pied de la lettre, les dix commandements s’imposent à tous les êtres humains. Ils protègent le ciel contre le péché et le maintiennent dans son état de gloire éternelle et de pureté absolue. Cet ouvrage démontre que les commandements ont un sens qui va bien au-delà de leur signification ordinaire. Aux chrétiens, ils lancent un défi au sujet d’un large éventail d’actes répréhensibles et d’attitudes coupables. Ils nous procurent des vertus positives comme objectifs à se fixer et nous fournissent de nombreuses aides pratiques pour demeurer proche du Seigneur dans notre marche et dans notre adoration. Les dix commandements sont vitaux pour mener une vie de piété richement bénie par le Seigneur. À cette fin, nous avons besoin des clés essentielles pour accéder à ce magnifique panorama offert par les normes et les buts fixés par Dieu pour Son peuple racheté.

 

 

Taken at face value the Ten Commandments are binding on all people, and will guard the way to Heaven, so that evil will never spoil its glory and purity. But the Commandments are far greater than their surface meaning, as this book shows.

They challenge us as Christians on a still wider range of sinful deeds and attitudes. They provide positive virtues as goals. And they give immense help for staying close to the Lord in our walk and worship.

The Commandments are vital for godly living and for greater blessing, but we need to enter into the panoramic view they provide of the standards and goals for redeemed people.

Extract from this book 

Each sin named in the Ten Commandments represents an entire species of sin. Each sin named is the chief offence of a whole family of wrong deeds. It is well known, for example, that the commandment against adultery also covers lust in the heart, and the commandment against murder includes hatred. There fore when a commandment forbids a major sin, all 'lesser' sins in the same family are to be included in the scope of that commandment.
The Ten Commandments are certainly to be taken at face value, and obeyed at the level of the sin named, but to limit the Commandments to the sin specifically mentioned robs them of all but their surface meaning.
