Do you only keep 9 commandments?

Adventists often asks us if we only keep 9 commandments. This is a shocking question to come from the mouth of a Christian.  Imagine if your child is taught that there are only ten letters in the English alphabet when there are more? The law of God, by which a Christian must live, requires him to do, and to do much. There are over 1000’s of moral commands stated in the Bible, and Christian’s are under the authority of these moral principles. Similarly, there are also commandments that a Christian is not under, but a Jew was under.

In the Adventist mind, the Ten Commandments are the perfect law. Anywhere they find the word law, they are programmed to believe it is only the ten commandments, and nothing more. But this utterly false, and childish (see: Ten Commandments Examined). An Israelite who loved God, not only kept ten laws, they kept all of the 613 laws in the Torah (see the list of 613 commandments here), and that included laws such as do not kill, do not steal, take care of the widows, be circumcised, observe Sabbaths, feast days, cleansing laws, give tithes to the poor, do not indulge in evil thoughts and sights, among many others.

Now the Bible makes it clear that all these 613 laws that He gave Israel was part of the national covenant He made with the nation Israel. Hence, He says:
  • ”The LORD our God made a covenant with us at Horeb” (Deut. 5:2)
  • The stones on which the decalogue was written are called “the tables of the covenant,” (Deut. 9:9)
  • The book in which it was written was called “the book of the covenant,” (Ex. 24:7)
  • The ark in which it was deposited was called “the ark of the covenant,” (Deut. 31:26)

 

The law of this covenant He made with Israel is the law of Moses which had 613 laws, and the ten were “the tables of testimony,” (Ex. 31:18); that is they acted as a witness of that covenant.
”Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments” (Mal. 4:4).
”For the law was given by Moses” (John 1:17) to the nation of Israel, and it included:
”For Moses said, ‘Honor your father and your mother” (Mark 7:10)
”And madest known unto them thy holy sabbath, and commandedst them precepts, statutes, and laws, by the hand of Moses thy servant (Nehmiah 9:14).

The National Law of Israel, which had the 613 commandments, was a temporary national law. It had a beginning, purpose, and an end:

Galatians 3:17, 19 ”The law, which was four hundred and thirty years later [BEGINNING], cannot annul the covenant that was confirmed before by God in Christ. ..Why the Law then? [PURPOSE] It was added because of transgressions, having been ordained through angels by the agency of a mediator, until the seed [JESUS] would come [END] to whom the promise had been made.

The first covenant [law of Moses or ten commandments] has no more authority over a Christian as it has been declared obsolete when God made a new covenant.
Look at the context of the end of Hebrews chapter 8 and the beginning of chapter 9. Remember that there were no chapter separations in the original. It is part of the same line of thought. The author of Hebrews says the old covenant was obsolete, and then defines what that included in the very next verses.
Hebrews 8:13  By calling this covenant “new,” he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear. 9:1 Now the first covenant had regulations for worship and also an earthly sanctuary. 2 A tabernacle was set up. In its first room were the lamp stand, the table and the consecrated bread; this was called the Holy Place. 3 Behind the second curtain was a room called the Most Holy Place, 4 which had the golden altar of incense and the gold-covered ark of the covenant. This ark contained the gold jar of manna, Aaron’s staff that had budded, and the stone tablets of the covenant.

Notice that the Old Covenant (now obsolete) included ceremonial aspects, and also the “stone tables of the covenant.” It cannot be any clearer. The Old Covenant included the tables of stone — the ten commandments — the tables of the covenant. The tables of the covenant cannot be anything but the ten commandments. It just stated in the previous chapter, that this was obsolete. and then chapter 9 goes on to define what was included in the obsolete covenant.

The Ten Commandment covenant has now passed away.

“But if the ministry of death, written and engraved on stones (ten commandments), was glorious, ….how will the ministry of the Spirit not be more glorious? For if what is passing away [Ten Commandments] was glorious, what remains is much more glorious” (2 Corinthians 3:7-11, NKJV).


A Christian doesn’t go to the law of Moses or to ten commandments to know whether it is wrong to kill, steal etc.
Instead they now go to the commandments of Jesus and the apostles who ushered in the new covenant. There has always been a higher law of God, that people have come under and will be judged by. Adventists think that the national law of Israel is the same as the eternal law of God.

Paul explained that the national law of Moses is not the same as the law of God, and that Christians nor he was any more under Moses’ law, but the law of Christ:
1 Corinthians 9:19-23 For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a slave to all, so that I may win more. To the Jews I became as a Jew, so that I might win Jews; to those who are under the Law [of Moses], as under the Law [of Moses] though not being myself under the Law [of Moses], so that I might win those who are under the Law [of Moses]; to those who are without law [of Moses – that would be Gentiles], as without law, though not being without the law of God but under the law of Christ, so that I might win those who are without law [of Moses – that is the Gentiles].

To briefly summarize Paul’s points:

  • When Paul was with Jews who were under the Mosaic Law (613 commandments), he acted as if he were under the Mosaic Law (v.20).
  • Paul, as a New Covenant Christian, was not under the Mosaic Law (v.20).
  • When Paul was with Gentiles, who were never under the Mosaic Law, he did not observe the Mosaic Law either (v.21).
  • New Covenant Christians are not without “the Law of God” (v.21).
  • New Covenant Christians are under “the Law of Christ” (v.21).
There are over 1,000’s of commands in the New Testament for Christians to obey. Some of these laws were in the national law of Israel, while some of them have been abolished or have not been commanded for Christians. Some of the laws that are not commanded for Christians in the teachings of Jesus and apostles or laws that have been abolished are Sabbaths, feast days, dietary laws, tithes, circumcision laws, and many others.
Here’s a list of moral and ritual commands restated for Christians in the new covenant era (source: 1050 commandments ). Due to repetitions we can classify them under 69 headings. They cover every phase of man’s life in his relationship to God and his fellowmen, now and hereafter. Here are some of them:
