  1. The commandments are make to such a simple mind as ours can understand. Even if you don’t know them almost by intuition you can fulfill them. I didn’t always followed them, because I’ve been lost much of my life. Since I try to follow them as much as I can my life has turned to the better, thanks God in Heaven.
    Best regards

      The Ten Commandments – God’s Covenant with humanity. Exodus 20: 1-17. They are preserved in the Ark of the Covenant and are also kept in the Sanctuary in Heaven. There is a reason for that.
      The 4th commandment needs to be written out fully so that everyone gets the full understanding of this commandment. God is very specific.

    • Hey buddy you are not alone. The toughest thing to do is turn from all of that and turn to God and follow Him. You have done that Rodrigo and I know God is proud. Keep walking that narrow path, I heard the view at the top is great!
