Here is what the Bible says about teaching the Ten
Commandments to your
Deuteronomy 6: 7
And thou shalt teach them deligently unto thy children, and
shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou
walkest in the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou riset
And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on
How can we be sure that Deuteronomy 6: 7, 8, and 9 are talking
about the Ten Commandments? First of all, the Ten Commandments are
given in their entirety in the preceding chapter (Chapter 5).
Chapter 6 begins by letting us know that the subject of the chapter
is the Ten Commandments.
Verse one begins: "Now these are the commandments". Verse 2
continues the main thought, "to keep all his statues and
commandments". The focus of this chapter is on the Ten Commandments
as they are refered to several times. Verse 17: "Ye shall diligently
keep the commandments"
Conclusion: A major focus of our teaching of our children
every day should be on the Ten Commandments. Furthermore, the only
passage of scripture we are required to post in our homes is the Ten
Commandments, verse 9: "And thou shalt write them upon the posts of
thy house" If the written words of the Ten Commandments are
constantly before us, we can learn them and obey them. Our
forefathers have taken this command seriously and posted them in
public places more than 2800 throughout the United States. No other
scripture verse is posted as often as the Ten Commandments. Don't
let the enemy cause us to disobey, we must keep them up in out homes
and in public places.
