Really? All it takes is a good, catechized Lutheran to step up and take care of business. They'd think twice about their silly game if a few of us showed up.

Rev. Z. Bartels

I like this guy!

Luke 16:9 I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.

Steve Newell

Does it matter which number system do you use?

Susan K

I don't know what's worse--that no one knows the ten commandments or that this man has elevated them above the Gospel. It's pretty ironic to hear people say "Love your neighbor as yourself" followed by a loud buzzer.

Steve Newell

Love your neighbor is Law, not Gospel. Just ask Jesus.

Melba Sibrel

He's using your bump music, Chris. Got a good beat, you can dance to it. So I'll give him a "7".

But seriously, the site presentation itself and the method for memorizing the 10 Commandments is okay. He does use law to point to the Gospel.

Chris H.

If you actually go through the Web site, he goes through the Ten Commandments, and then uses them a la Todd Friel and Way of the Master to preach the gospel.

Sad. Very sad. I do, however, get his motive. Whether people win or not they are learning the 10 commandments and it could definitely lead to other things. Just because people are saved does not exclude anyone from the commandments. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and love your neighbor as yourself sums up the Law (commandments) and the Prophets. It's all connected.

I am usally on the the other side of these kind of things, BUT if he wants to use his own money to teach the law (which points us to the need for Christ) more power to him. If a church took $20k out of the plate, it would be different story. I have seen churches spend twice this much speading the "love of Christ" and never mention the righteous requirements of God. You must find yourself guilty before God to realize your need for atonement. He is one guy using his resources to advance the gospel. (I hope this does not mean I am getting soft.)

You need to put this ten commandments offer in context!! In the process of registering for the 20K you have to answer if you have or have not kept each commandment and it is followed by a Gospel presentation. This is not a cheap ploy it is very well done and presents the Gospel in a God honoring way. I know as Christians we are commanded to test all things, go for it! I think you will see he passes the test.

Trying to ask people to name all 10 commandments is the same phenomenon as asking people to name all 50 states. Unless you have practiced naming all 50 states, have memorized a song with all 50 states, or something such as that, you simply won't be able to name them all. The brain uses association to recall memories, so if you have nothing readily associated with all the states, like a song or previous experience of being challenged to name all 50 states, you WILL forget a couple no matter how smart you are. However, if all 50 states were written down and mixed up among some fake state names it would be easy to pick the right ones. If you saw "Alaska" written down your brain would immediately recall that Alaska is indeed a US state.

I mostly certainly agree that, considering how many people in the claim to be Christian, the United States is extremely lacking in Biblical knowledge. Some of those people were naming stuff that isn't even close... Thou Shall Not Trespass? However, trying to remember laws and commandments in list format is impractical and doesn't even necessarily prove that you don't know the 10 commandments. Knowledge is best utilized when organized in concepts rather than lists.

I'll be the first to admit that I don't know the 10 commandments, though I was pretty close, but it really doesn't matter. If you do know them, great, but there is no reason to rigorously remember the 10 commandments anyway, since they no longer reflect the relationship between God and Man. The Ten Commandments, and God's other laws in the Old Covenant, are now nothing more than a historical reminder about how man is incapable of obeying the law. Of course the same concepts that the Ten Commandments were written to address still apply, steal is still wrong, we still should honor our parents, etc, but its more efficient to remember concepts, which is why the Bible says in Romans 13 that if you love other people you will fulfill all God's laws.

You don't need to remember lists of do's don'ts, and you wouldn't be able to either, all you need to remember is that you're supposed to love God and love other people. As long as you understand what love is, which sadly most people don't, you can evaluate a situation and decide what is right and what is wrong. I couldn't remember that not using God's name in vain was part of the Ten Commandments, nor could I remember that honor your father and mother was one of the Ten Commandments, but I have no trouble identify these things as wrong when I am in a situation with my parents or God's name being taken in vain.

Questions on God’s law
Can you love your neighbor as yourself and not honor you mother and father, not be faithful to your spouse, murder, lie, steal or desire to have your neighbor’s belongings or spouse?

Can you love God with all your heart, soul and might and not keep the commandments of love concerning our neighbors; or place things of this earth before him, bow down to idols, curse God, remember not His Holy day and sanctify it weekly in our lives for Jesus the creator?

Did Jesus create us? (Col 1:15-17, Heb 1:1-3, John 1:1-4) Was He the Word in the beginning that said “Let there be light”, that made the firmament and separated the waters, that made dry land appear, then brought forth every living creature, who knelt down on the earth, formed Adam out of the dust, leaned over him and breathed life into his nostrils? Did Jesus bless the seventh day and set it apart as a time for Him and us to be together, a time to share this day as a memorial to Him our creator and a day I do not have to work? Is this good for me today? Isn’t one of the last warnings of the messenger of the Gospel to all the earth to “…worship him that made heaven and earth and the sea and fountains of waters.” (Rev 14:6-7)? Does this apply to me? Might this be related to the “Mark of the Beast”?

Jesus said “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets; I am not come to destroy , but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.” (Matt 5:17-18) Hmm, Heaven and earth have not passed.

Is there a distinction between the Law of God/Testimony of God (that God wrote with his finger) and the law of Moses/ceremonial ordnances? (Exo 25:21, Duet 31:24-26, Rev 11:19) Were not the ordinances nailed to the cross? (Col 2:14) Since we are no longer under the schoolmaster of Moses law, should we walk and live by the knowledge that we received? (Gal 2:25) Or, can we cast aside and ignore what we learn from the old covenant school? Was the old covenant God’s plan of salvation in daily ceremonies?
Isn’t sin the transgression of God’s law? (John 3:4) Is it okay to continue in sin or to choose to no know God (Jesus)?

Is the whole Gospel the gift of knowledge that Jesus will forgive our sins and our acknowledgement that Jesus is the son of God and our Savior? (1 John 2:1-6) Is the Gospel also a promise of power through the Holy Spirit to overcome sin in our lives; to establish God laws (Romans 3:28-31,5:21-6:2; 1 John 3:1-9)) and allow God to put His laws in our hearts and write them in our minds, a new covenant? (Heb 10:15-17) Is the Gospel, forgiveness of sin so that we can sin tomorrow and the next day without consequence or judgment? (Heb 10:26-31) If I do not know God’s law, can I know what is right in Jesus sight? Didn’t Jesus live the law as an example and die on the cross so that we can be forgiven of sin? Do I need to some how overcome sin so I can spend eternity with Him or does this just happen suddenly at Jesus coming, in the blink of an eye? (1 John 5:18-21)

Will I be happy in heaven where everyone keeps the law of God? (Rev 11:19) The Bible says of those living right before Jesus returns and have not received the “Mark of the Beast”, “Here is the patience of the saints, here are they that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus Christ” (Rev 14:12). The Bible says that works of the law cannot save us. We are saved by grace. But, if I walk in God’s law is this evidence that I am a child of God (1 John 5:1-5, John 1:12-13)?

Is the law written by the finger of God in stone a “do and do not” list for only those before the cross, or perhaps could it be a promise to all that invite Jesus into their heart, that they will receive the POWER to keep the law? I invite you to not just learn Jesus’ law, but meditate on it daily and may you receive the full knowledge and blessing of God the Father through Jesus Christ and answers to these questions.
