Ten Commandments For You(th) —For Everyone!
For Youth and Young-minded Adults An Explanation of the Ten Commandments and A Memory System using Bible Numerics;
Note: The title "for youth" does not imply that it is ONLY geared toward young people... it is written to be readable by youth and adults; however, the intent is: for YOU (everyone) and for youthfulness. Obedience to God is a "fountain of youth" of sorts. This has nothing to do with salvation. It has to do with blessing, health, prosperity, and long life in this this life (and added honor in the next) because God blesses obedience.

not on a child's level, but for older youth and adults
[young minded, of course, refers to the opposite of "you can't teach an old dog a new trick" and also Christ taught that if one wanted to see/enter the Kingdom he had to become as a little child, that is child-like faith and obedience.]
My exposition on the 10 commandments, shows that the 10 commandments are not 10 individual laws, but 10 categories of law under which the entire law of God is organized. I show how other laws are so categorized and also show how breaking any one is tantamount to breaking all; and that all 10 categories if violated are sins against God and all 10 categories if violated are sins against our kinsmen. Very detailed, enlightening, instructional; profound new thought and clear teaching that will be hard for antinomians to refute, if they will read.
Also a detailed exposition of Matthew 5:38-40 concerning loving our enemies, turning the other cheek, giving thy coat and cloak, etc. These were not general, broad based, universal statements, but only referred to accepting just punishment in court if one had truly sinned and damaged a kinsman and thus to accept the punishment gracefully, showing your true remorse for having damaged a brother and "going the extra mile" likewise had specific (not universal) application; but modern Christianity has perverted this Sermon on the mount teaching to mean we should just bend over and accept abuse and lie down and die. Christ taught Occupy till I come, and Paul wrote, have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness but REBUKE them... this is not consonant with "turning the other cheek" to God's enemies, the enemies of Christendom, immoral people, criminals, etc., which is not what Christ was teaching.
