This thread is about the Ten Commandments, and the OP wondered what was missing. I answered that, staying on topic. Your comments are all over the map and do not relate to the OP.

My comments are precisely what the ten commandments miss. Did you think that MORE imperfect laws would fix the problem? Seriously?

You may have perceived that was what you were communicating, but I can't see how. Perhaps try rephrasing the pertinent parts.

Certainly true but the idea that anybody but Christ could keep the law is the biggest lie in christianity today. NOBODY can keep it because we all exist in bodies of FLESH which cares nothing for spiritual matters or the law. The law not only EXCITES sin but is designed to drive us to a loving God who in mercy and grace will wipe every sin from us and give every believer the Holy Spirit as well. Once you understand it's all about what HE did and not about our works the light bulb should go on..........
