I had assumed the answer was yes, considered the fervency with which some self-proclaimed Christians, like Judge Roy Moore of Alabama, try to push the Ten Commandments into the public square. However, in the topic “Should theist fact claims be subjected . . .” in this forum, self-proclaimed spokesperson for God LilySmith says no, the law of Christ supersedes the law of Moses. Actually, she doesn’t quite say that, only that Christians don’t follow “all” Ten Commandments.
Believe it or not, there are more fundamental issues to address with her post, which is # 247. However, I did some research.
Here are links to Christian sites saying that Christians need not follow the Ten Commandments.
Here are links to Christian sites saying that they must.
The UCG site says that anyone who teaches that Christians need not follow the Ten Commandments “is in grave spiritual danger.”
Given that those might be the stakes - since at least one Christian believes it, therefore it could be true according to LilySmith’s “logic” - here are a couple of questions for Lily and any Christians who might be lurking.
Who is right, and on what basis; how sure are you? Are you sure enough to bet your soul; isn’t that exactly what you’re doing, according to other parts of your theology?
Why wouldn’t God clear the matter up definitively?
Why isn’t the above clear evidence of what we secularists have been saying it all along: that you guys just make up your answers as you go along, selectively choosing from and interpreting your “sacred” writings as you see fit? And why isn’t that good reason to throw the whole thing out and look for a more objective basis for your most central beliefs?
Lily, if you choose to comment here, it’s not an excuse for ignoring your complete self-contradiction and intellectual dishonesty on the other topic, mentioned above.
