Although often called the moral foundation of our society, a moral code of behavior and basic ethical rules, the Ten Commandments, a covenant or arrangement God made with specific people at specific times in history, are instructive but not necessarily imperative for us. They may be reinterpreted for different contexts. Their ethical value must be cautiously explored, not assumed.
The 10 Commandments, found in the 20th chapter of the book of Exodus, only tell us how not to live; they do not tell us how to live. They fail to serve as a "moral guide", a rational code which takes account of man's profound need for values.
