Have your say

ACCORDING to accepted lore, God gave the 10 Commandments to Moses on Mount Sinai, to emphasize their importance.

But how would you rank their relevance to today’s society? Or are they equally important?

1. Thou shalt not kill

2. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image

3. (tie) Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain

3. (tie) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife

5. Thou shalt have no other gods before me

6. Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy

7. Honour thy father and thy mother

8. Thou shalt not commit adultery

9. Thou shalt not steal

10. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour
