The 10 Commandments by various speakers - 11 messages (2018)

PART 9 – Mervyn Hall preaches on the 8th commandment – “Thou shalt not steal”. He asks 3 questions: “What is theft?”, “Why and where was the commandment instituted?”, and “How does it apply to us today?” From Eph 4:28 Mervyn highlights a number of ways in which we can easily be guilty of stealing today, in areas of time, money and truthfulness. Some comments along the way about socialism and capitalism make for interesting listening (Message preached 10th Jun 2018)

PART 8 – Michael Penfold preaches on the 7th commandment – “Thou shalt not commit adultery”. He distinguishes between physical, heart and spiritual adultery, as well as pointing out the difference between several major Bible words related to sexual immorality in general. He suggests a reason why adultery is the one sexual sin that appears in the list of the 10 commandments (Message preached 3rd Jun 2018)

PART 7 – Mervyn Hall preaches on the 6th commandment – “Thou shalt not kill”. He takes the subject up under three headings: What is murder? Why and when was it prohibited? and How does this principle apply today? Issues such as “killing in war” and whether or not “capital punishment” applies today are examined, as well as the Lord’s words in Matt 5:21-22 where He deals with anger in the heart as the motivation behind murder (Message preached 27th May 2018)

PART 6 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the 5th commandment – “Honour your father and mother”, the first commandment with promise. Children can honour their parents by living an obedient life, lifting their parents’ load, learning their parents’ lessons and lavishing love on their parents. Parents can act towards their children in such a way as to encourage them to show honour – by loving, lifting, limiting, and leading them, and laughing with them (Message preached 20th May 2018)

PART 5 – Michael Penfold preaches on the 4th Commandment. He lists 6 reasons why God gave the Sabbath. He proves that the Saturday Sabbath was a ceremonial, not a moral law, and that it was not instituted until Sinai. It was a “shadow” that gave way to the “substance” at the coming of Christ. He also looks at why believers meet on Sundays today, which the Bible calls “the Lord’s Day”. Useful for Seventh Day Adventists or anyone confused about the Sabbath in general (Message preached 13th May 2018)

PART 4 – Jonathan Black preaches on “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain”. He takes the subject up under three headings: 1. The meaning of God’s name in Hebrew (Jehovah, Elohim and Adonai); 2. The mention of God’s name at Horeb (Sinai); and 3. The misuse of God’s name – our holiness. He lists 7 ways in which it is possible to take God’s name in vain today. A challenging message! (Message preached 6th May 2018)

PART 3 – Joshua Jacob preaches on the 2nd commandment – “Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images” etc. He explains the difference between the 1st and 2nd commandment before contrasting true worship with false worship. Not only is the worship of idols prohibited, but worshipping the true God through idols is also prohibited. God, the supreme, sovereign, self-existent Creator is a jealous God – He desires, deserves and demands worship to Him and Him alone (Message preached 29th Apr 2018)

PART 2 – Michael Penfold outlines God’s essential moral absolutes, that pre-date and post-date the law of Moses, before dealing with the 1st commandment. He outlines the meaning of theism, deism, monotheism, polytheism, pantheism, atheism and agnosticism. He shows why the Roman Catholic Church omits Commandment No 2.  Finally he challenges his audience to beware of the subtle but very common idolatry that we can all be so easily guilty of; turning a good thing into an ultimate thing (Message preached 22nd Apr 2018)

PART 1 – Mervyn Hall introduces a series on the “10 Commandments”. He outlines three groups of people – Israel “under law”, the Gentiles “without law” and Christians today “in law to Christ” (from 1 Cor 9). Then he asks three questions: 1. Are Christians obligated to keep the 10 Commandments as Israel did? 2. What was the purpose of the law? and 3. Why study the 10 Commandments? He explains that though the Mosaic law has been abolished, Christians cannot live as they like (Message preached 15th Apr 2018)
