The ten commandments makes it very clear why we need Jesus. He said the Bible Old and New Testament will be with us for eternity. So 1. No other God before Me = means not putting anything before God, not things or people. How many Hollywood stars are idols or sports fans 2. No carved image= means cars, houses, statues etc we as a society see these images daily thrown at us in ads.everyday 3. Do not use the Name of the Lord God in vain = we see it on TV and hear it all the time now. 4. Remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy = take a day with the Lord, most do not do this. 5. Honor Father and mother= again something we need to follow to find peace. 6. Don’t murder= Jesus made this even harder by saying Matthew 5:21-24 “You have heard that it was said to the men of old, ‘You shall not kill, and whoever kills shall be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother without a cause shall be liable to judgment. 7. Do not commit adultery= most things we watch on TV shows people committing adultery it has become a non-issue in society. This is watching porn too. 8. Don’t steal= most don’t do that or do they, taxes? 9. Don’t bear false witness= Lying, the many so-called white lies. 10. Do not covet= in simplicity don’t envy, envy needs be banished from the human heart. This also would cover porn.
This is why we truly need Jesus. Every human being on the face of the earth has fallen in many of these areas. Jesus promised to take our sins. He asks us to repent of them and grow out of them but He has taken them and paid for them.
