The 10 New Commandments

10-commandmentsThe Ten Commandments are frequently discussed as outdated or even obsolete. Based on a discussion by Maureen Johnson with her father in To Sail Beyond The Sunset, concepts of Alan Dean Foster in his Commonwealth and many discussions with friends, I came up with the following 10 New Commandments.

If you object, please discuss with us.
If you like them, spread them!

  1. There is a god. All variants in the end are facets of that same truth.
  2. Do not murder or command murder.
  3. Honor and foster love and live in all it’s facets.
  4. Love your spouse, children and friends and nourish your love.
  5. Raise your children that they are proud about their heritage.
  6. Help when you can.
  7. Treat all live with respect. Foster nature and it’s resources.
  8. Do not acquire valuables without a fair compensation.
  9. Do not lie without a very good cause.
  10. God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    courage to change the things I can,
    and the wisdom to know the difference.

1 Don’t believe the priests or politicians trying to convince you differently.
2 That includes mass murder as war. The sin.
3 is main to 4, 5, 6, 7… Not limited to human life, but also nature!
4 includes to spend time with the family (nourishing, “Sabbath”)
6-8 includes not to abuse labor
10 Thank you friend and co-author Ice-Sphinx for suggesting the Serenity Prayer as No. 10!
