Ten Commandments = God's Character


 

The Ten Commandments Compared to God's Character

It is through the Ten Commandments that God reveals His very own nature and character. The characteristics and attributes of God are so numerous that to list and expound upon them thoroughly would require much more space than we have here. The table below gives an excellent comparison from scripture on how the Ten Commandments and Gods glorious and perfect loving character share the same attributes. This is because the Ten Commandments are love as God is love and thus they do share identical attributes. The Ten Commandments therefore provide the perfect moral and social rules of behaviour, which when followed will guide a person towards having a more Christ and God like character. This is something that all Christians should desire and strive to achieve.

The Ten Commandments as given on Mount Sinai are a reflection of God's nature in that they also contain universal and unchanging principles of morality and describe our relationship to God and our fellow human beings. Through God's law the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin and brings us to a sense of helplessness. The law of God is the instrument by which the Spirit calls us to repentance. Paul said, “What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. No, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, You shall not covet.Romans 7:7. Without the law there is no transgression (Romans 4:15) and hence no sin to repent from as sin is transgression of the law. 1 John 3:4. The reason God cannot tolerate sin is because it is a defilement of His very own character.
