Are Christians obligated by God to obey the Ten Commandments? Some actually teach this. For instance, in Deuteronomy 5, Moses gave the Israelite a second hearing of those commands (5:6-21), and some think that the words in 5:22 is significant in this regard. The verse reads, “”These words the LORD spoke to all your assembly, in the mountain from the midst of the fire, the cloud, and the thick darkness, with a loud voice; and He added no more. And He wrote them on two tablets of stone and gave them to me” (NKJV). The words, “…and He added no more” indicate to some there is a distinction between the Law of Moses and the Ten Commandments. Thus, when the Lord nailed to the cross the Law of Moses, it was not the Ten Commandments. When one pays attention to the chapter, however, it is easily seen this is a mishandling of the Scripture. “The LORD our God made a covenant with us in Horeb. The LORD did not make this covenant with our fathers, but with us, those who are here today, all of us who are alive” (Deuteronomy 5:2-3). In other words, the Lord gave these words to the Israelites, and Moses said as much!
