A recent survey has revealed that the majority of Brits believe four of the 10 Commandments are not nearly as important in modern society.
The two which the most survey participants (93 percent) said were still important were the Commandments against murder and against stealing.
Below these, 87 percent of those surveyed said not bearing false witness was still relevant and 73 percent said not committing adultery was still an important Commandment to follow.
Next, 69 percent said honoring one’s father and mother is still important, while 61 percent affirmed the relevance of not coveting someone else’s possessions.
As far as the other four Commandments, however, only a relatively small percentage of those surveyed said they were still important today.
Thirty-one percent said that not worshipping idols is still important, 23 percent said the same for using God’s name in vain, 20 percent affirmed the importance of not worshipping other gods, and 19 percent still believe in keeping the Sabbath as a holy day to God.
Interestingly, the Commandments which have apparently become less important in peoples’ beliefs today are the ones that most are most foundational to a right relationship with God.

Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
