    WILL YOU ALSO CAREFULLY EXAMINE THE FOLLOWING DECLARATIONS CONCERNING THE LAW OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS?

    1. God Spake the Ten Commandments in the Hearing of the People, and Wrote them with his Own Finger on two Tables of Stone. Deuteronomy 4:12, 13; 5:22; Exodus 20:1; 24:12; 31:18; 32:15, 16; Nehemiah 9:13, 14.MOB 14.10

    2. A Knowledge of the Principles of the Ten Commandments Existed Before they were Given on Sinai. (1) Genesis 35:1-4; (2) Genesis 31:19, 34, 35; 35:2, 4; (3) Leviticus 18:3, 21, 24, 27; (4) Genesis 2:1-4; Mark 2:27; Genesis 8:10, 12; 29:27, 28; Exodus 16:4, 22, 23, 25-30; (5) Genesis 9:20-25; (6) Genesis 4:8-11, 23, 24; 9:5, 6; (7) Genesis 20:5-9; 38:24; 39:7-9; (8) Genesis 30:33; 31:19, 30, 32, 39; 44:8; (9) Genesis 39:7-20; (10) The fact that the transgression of the tenth commandment must precede the violation of the eighth, and that the eighth was known, and its violation considered worthy of death, is sufficient evidence that the principle of the tenth commandment was known before the law was given at Sinai. Also, no mention is made of the violation of the third commandment in the book of Genesis; but profanity was among the sins of the nations living in Canaan before the law was given at Sinai. (Compare Leviticus 18:21, with Leviticus 18:27.) If those nations were ignorant of the matter of the third commandment, then profanity was not “an abomination” in them; for “sin is not imputed when there is no law.” Romans 5:13.MOB 15.1

    3. The Law of God is a Complete Rule of Action. Ecclesiastes 12:13; Deuteronomy 11:18, 19; Psalm 37:30, 31; Matthew 19:16, 17; Romans 2:13; 3:19, 20; 7:7; James 1:25; 2:8-12; 1 John 3:4; Revelation 22:14.MOB 15.2

    4. It is Perfect. Psalm 19:7-9; 119:138, 142, 151; Isaiah 48:18; Romans 7:12, 14, 22, 25.MOB 15.3

    5. It is Unlimited in its Duration. Psalm 111:7, 8; 1 Chronicles 16:15-17; Psalm 89:30-32; 105:8; 119:144, 152, 100; Matthew 5:18.MOB 15.4

    6. Was Ratified by the Teachings of Christ and his Apostles. Matthew 5:17-19; 22:35-40; Romans 3:31; 1 Corinthians 7:19; Revelation 12:17; 14:12; 22:14.MOB 15.5

    Reader, if you have carefully and prayerfully examined the above propositions, and the texts of Scripture brought to sustain them, are you not convinced of the unchangeableness of God’s holy law, and that no man can stand in the Judgment without obeying it?MOB 15.6
