Teaching your kids the Ten Commandments

44 posts in this topic

At the LifeLight festival Labor Day weekend, one speaker, a famous skateboarder, asked how many knew the Ten Commandments. Another band noted the need for parents to mentor their children. A big part of that should be teaching them the basics about God's word.

Here is a poem that makes it easy to teach kids the Ten Commandments. Share it with others.

Interesting word thought, I like the fact that it admonishes the children to read the rest from Exodus 20 as well.

From your link:

Above all e"se love God alone;

Bow down to neither wood nor stone.

God’s name refuse to take in vain;

The Sabbath rest with care maintain.

Respect your parents all your days;

Hold sacred human life always.

Be loyal to your chosen mate;

Steal nothing neither small nor great.

Report, with truth, your neighbor’s deed;

And rid your mind of selfish greed.

This is an easy way for children to begin to learn them. As they grow, read them the text itself, Exodus 20."

-In addition, here is a link to a free pictorial "Teach Kids the Ten Commandments" (flipchart) from Living Waters.

This is a PDF which can be saved to your computer.

Based on children's pictures on memorizing the Ten Commandments, a test at the end with message of Salvation in Christ.

Thanks for that other resource!

Hope people will pass these links around to other Christian parents. With biblical illiteracy so high, we need to work steadily on rebuilding the crumbling walls.

I fully believe we should study and understand the Ten Commandments. I believe we should teach our children too do the same. But it is impossible for mankind to ever live up to the Ten Commandments. God gave the Ten Commandments and only God could and did fulfill them.

So why study them.. Once you understand that you can not fulfill the Ten Commandments, and that if you do try and fail, you'll be judged by the Ten Commandments (not good). You come to the understanding that they are a teacher,, they are trying to teach us that we needed something else to unlock the doors of Heaven. We needed another way to be judged. Jesus is that key, and Jesus is our spokesman in Heaven and is our defense attorney at time of Judgement (very good).

God Bless

The Ten Commandments can be fulfilled by each one of us every moment and it is our journey to arrive to the True Light through Jesus.

Amen!

Rom 8:4 That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Of course our children are merely carnal in nature until they receive Christ and are able to walk in the spirit. The 10 commandments are an excellent teaching tool, as they are righteous though we do not get our righteousness from doing them.

georgedrw81,,

Oh how I feel for you.. The Ten Commandments are the absolute standard of absolute Perfection,, Given by God, written by His hand into the stone tablets.. To achieve the fulfillment of the Ten Commandments you have to be absolutly perfect,, mankind is far from perfect. The Ten Commandments where given by God, later fulfilled by God in the form of the Son "Jesus" that man could recieve the fulfillment through Jesus.. You are seting yourself up for one rough time if you beleive you'll ever fulfil the Ten Commmandments.

I'm not going to go into the full detail, but believe me when I say you'll never be Saved or Justified in or through the Ten Commandments.. You just cannot acommplish this task. The Ten Commandments are still a valued teaching,, simply because it helps to fortify our commonsence and morals..

God bless

Romans 1:1-6

[1] Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto the gospel of God,

[2] (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)

[3] Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;

[4] And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:

[5] By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:

[6] Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ:

Romans 1:11-17

[11] For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established;

[12] That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me.

[13] Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.

[14] I am debtor both to the Greeks, and to the Barbarians; both to the wise, and to the unwise.

[15] So, as much as in me is, I am ready to preach the gospel to you that are at Rome also.

[16] For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

[17] For therein (therein = The Gosple) is a righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

Here's a starting point for you to continue on with.. You find Paul goes on to teach all the world is Guilty (both Jew and Gentile) under the Law of the Old Testiment,, the Old Covenant.. Jesus has given us the New Testiment,, a New Covenant,, a new Law.. the Law of Grace by the sheading of His blood.. The Law of Salvation by the Death and Resurecton of our Lord.

God gave the Law of Absolute Perfection and only God could fulfill this Law.. Jesus is the only person to have walked the earth that could, would and did fulfill the Ten Commandments.

God bless

Your wasting your time with me if you think that you will somehow teach me that we cannot be like Jesus. That is not biblical. While none of us can be without sin because we were born with it in our flesh and have given in to it as slaves until Jesus came to set us free, the bible explains clearly that God has provided us with everything we need to be able to walk as Jesus walked while he was here. My desire is to utilize the tools God has provided to do just that.

In Jesus Name,

Gary
