Today, for some reason, I decided to make this video. As I was making and reading it, I can't help but feel that I've broken most of it - if not all. Forgotten by many, disregarded by some, openly opposed by others - one cannot help but think about it - and see the failings of our own humanity.
Easter as far as I remember, is the triumph of love, forgiveness and Christ over death and sin. Beyond that, it is not within my comprehension.
We, mortals try to encapsulate the event in representations and movies. Interestingly ABC will show the movie in America tonight, according to Cecil B. DeMille's interpretation. I've not much liked it, because of the oldness of the movie. Disney has tried too, but has not had the same effect.
If you've missed it and want to watch it, you may peruse a copy in Amazon.com.
We live in the age of enlightened confusion. In the age where truth is obscured by so many versions of it, sometimes, the truth is found in the simplicity of things. The ten commandments is as simple as it gets in my own opinion.
I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
1 >>Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
2 >>Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:
thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: Ex. 34.17 · Lev. 19.4 ; 26.1 · Deut. 4.15-18 ; 27.15 for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
and showing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments. Ex. 34.6, 7 · Num. 14.18 · Deut. 7.9, 10
3 >>Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain: Lev. 19.12 for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
4 >>Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Ex. 16.23-30 ; 31.12-14
Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work:
but the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, Ex. 23.12 ; 31.15 ; 34.21 ; 35.2 · Lev. 23.3 thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it. Gen. 2.1-3 · Ex. 31.17
5 >>Honor thy father and thy mother: Deut. 27.16 · Mt. 15.4 ; 19.19 · Mk. 7.10 ; 10.19 · Lk. 18.20 · Eph. 6.2 that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. Eph. 6.3
6 >>Thou shalt not kill. Gen. 9.6 · Lev. 24.17 · Mt. 5.21 ; 19.18 · Mk. 10.19 · Lk. 18.20 · Rom. 13.9 · Jas. 2.11
7 >>Thou shalt not commit adultery. Lev. 20.10 · Mt. 5.27 ; 19.18 · Mk. 10.19 · Lk. 18.20 · Rom. 13.9 · Jas. 2.11
8 >>Thou shalt not steal. Lev. 19.11 · Mt. 19.18 · Mk. 10.19 · Lk. 18.20 · Rom. 13.9
9 >>Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor. Ex. 23.1 · Mt. 19.18 · Mk. 10.19 · Lk. 18.20
10 >>Thou shalt not covet Rom. 7.7 ; 13.9 thy neighbor's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbor's.
