The Mosaic Decalogue

When God talked with Moses on Mount Sinai there was given the law which will stand as long as time, and of which Jesus said: "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 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." Mrs. Eddy tells us practically the same thing when she says in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 174): "The thunder of Sinai and the Sermon on the Mount are pursuing and will overtake the ages, rebuking in their course all error and proclaiming the kingdom of heaven on earth."

Although certain Bible scholars have given minor reasons for presentation of the Ten Commandments to the Hebrew people; although these same scholars have endeavored to explain the origin of these commands in such a diversity of ways as would have resulted in explaining them entirely away had their foundation been intellectualism; although they have proclaimed them to have been received by Moses at different periods; the fact still remains that God's people throughout all ages have held to them as a definite rule of conduct for humanity in its relationship to God and to its fellow men. To the present day they continue to be a voice from God uncovering evil, protecting from evil, destroying evil. As we find them stated in the twentieth chapter of Exodus they constitute a moral law which when perfectly obeyed results in the complete overthrow of all the claims of evil.
