The Actual Ten Commandments
and why Good Girls follow them

I.

You shall have no other gods before me.

( God First.
This means that what the girls think of you or having
great clothes but having to break a Commandment to
get it is against God.)

II.

You shall not make for yourself any carved image,
or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or
that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water
under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor
serve them.

(Don’t worship nature, celebrities, money
or fame above God.)

III.

You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in
vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes
His name in vain.

(Don’t use God’s name carelessly.
Don’t promise to do something invoking God’s name.
Use God’s name respectfully.)

IV.

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.

(Remember
God – make Sundays about worship and thanking God. Read the Bible – perhaps a few chapters
each Sunday. Jesus changed this so that you can do
good acts on the Sabbath.)

V.

Honor your father and your mother, that your days
may be long upon the land which the Lord your God
is giving you.

(Generally, children obeying and respecting
parents is in line with God’s teachings. But, in cases
where the parents are going against God’s teachings,
like asking their children to participate in pornography,
drugs or other forms of immorality, children should
honor their parents by disobeying their parents and saying
“No” and obeying God and getting help. Parents are
an authority, not an ultimate authority. God is the ultimate
authority and is to be followed and obeyed over
parents. Sometimes, honoring, respecting and loving can
feel uncomfortable to the child or parent.)

VI.

You shall not murder.

(This includes abortion and
euthanasia. This does not include self-defense.)

VII.

Thou shall not commit adultery.

(Married people shall
not fornicate, commit sodomy or put your body with
a person who is not your spouse nor fantasize about
it. Don’t cheat or be unfaithful. This includes looking
at pornography. Jesus said if a man or woman even
thinks about being sexual with a person besides their
spouse, you have committed adultery. This includes 11
asking your spouse to role-play as someone he or she
is not. Ask for forgiveness and avoid putting yourself in
those positions.)

VIII.

You shall not steal.

(Don’t take that which is not yours.)

IX.

You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

(Don’t lie about people and especially, don’t vilify
or lie in court about someone.)

X.

You shall not covet your neighbor’s house; you
shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, nor his manservant,
nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his donkey,
nor anything that is your neighbor’s.

(Don’t be envious.
This includes don’t look at pornography. When a man
does this he is coveting a woman who is not his wife. It
is okay to want a nicer house or car, the one God has
planned for you, but not to want that other person’s
actual house or car for yourself.)

The Ten Commandments are a good map for Good Girls to follow to have good lives. It is very hard to have a Fairytale if you are breaking the Ten Commandments.
