264 Commandments
Matthew 5:17-20
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.

For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
~ Jesus

Most people know of the most popular version of the commandment the big 10.

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.
3) Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
4) Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
5) Honor thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.
6) Thou shalt not kill.
7) Thou shalt not commit adultery.
8) Thou shalt not steal.
9) Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
10.) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors goods.

But what about the other 254? What you never heard of them? You could be breaking a commandment right now and not know it. (and most likely you are. Naughty Naughty)

Many conversations I've had, I often hear that people say "Well, Jesus changed the laws." But that's not was stated. In the top quote you can see. That was not his goal. Many of the Commandments are out right stupid. Other's silly. And almost all contradictory. Because you can't have a commandment that say's "thou shal not kill", and have the punishment for breaking anyone of of these, is to be killed.

They tell you what to eat, how to dress, what to do with your day, what you can or can not think about, even how to treat others (most of the time not very well)

So here it is. The complete list of 264 Commandments.

Kill the prophets of other gods. 18:20b
Don't be afraid of false prophets. 18:22


Ok so kill them but don't be afraid of them? Why are you killing them then? I mean if they are the prophet of a false god then I would assume all they are doing is talking right? "Hey everyone, I am a representative of Capn Crunch, he wants everyone to check out his new flavor Sprinkled Donut Crunch! May you always stray crunchy! Amen!"

I don't see how that warrants running up to this prophet and slitting his throat, I would think there is at least some fear involved here. Also this one is pretty funny:

If you have a wet dream, go to the special wet dream place and wash with water in the evening before returning to camp. 23:10-12

Oh yeah, the "wet dream place", we all got one of those in our house right? It's like that closet by the door where we keep our coats and board games? I think you're supposed to go there and just think for a little about how awesome that dream was and then go wash up in the bathroom? I'm pretty that's what that means.

RE: 264 Commandments
I thought many of the Commandments came from Zoroastrianism. It seems like I read that Zoroastrianism had two or three hundred commandments too. Or maybe I'm thinking of some other old religion that was around before the Bible.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

This seems like pretty good advice. Probably could be filed under "common sense", but I guess they were living in different times, so who am I to judge?

Goddammit! I'm glad I don't believe any of this stuff anymore. Life without beer and about two more pieces of pizza than I really should have had isn't really worth living.

Does this include D&D parties, because the game gets a lot harder if you start excluding casters like that.

If these laws are meant to apply to all people, this seems like a bit of a tautology to me.

3) Don't add any commandments. 4:2, 12:32

Ok. I see what I did. I only got the one from Deuteronomy, not Leviticus. (ho boy) this may take a while.

But unless I'm mistaken many laws don't apply to all people.

Some seem to apply to parents, different laws apply to kings, other laws apply to slaves....Priests...yada yada ya..

So everyone doesn't have to follow all the laws.

Some just point to calendar events too. Meh.

Honestly, I've never seen a compiled list like this before (or then again, perhaps I have and just forgot).

There's actually one or two I like. Go figure. Drinking Beverage

Many are just downright silly, Wizards, witches and crap like that.Laugh out load


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
