Laws predating the 10 commandments
The Law of Moses is best understood in a broad sense. Scribes and copyists evidently made a few changes after the time of Moses (e.g., compare Moses 1-5 with Gen. Compounding the question of what was meant by the term "Law of Moses" in the Book of Mormon is the fact that the "five books of Moses" that the Nephites possessed predated Ezra's redaction and canonization of the Pentateuch (444 B. Quoted passages (e.g., Mosiah -24), however, indicate that the Nephite laws were substantially similar to the biblical texts that Jews and Christians have today. D., the Jewish view held that the commandments numbered 613.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints teaches that this law was given by God to Moses, that it formed part of a peculiar covenant of obedience and favor between God and his people, that it symbolized and foreshadowed things to come, and that it was fulfilled in the Atonement of Jesus Christ. 7), Latter-day Saints generally accept at face value statements in the Bible that attribute authorship to Moses, but the Church has taken no official stand concerning the collection and transmission of these legal texts in the Pentateuch.
Admit it, when the weekend rolls around you chuckle softly to yourself about the odd, and usually ridiculous things that Sarah Palin says on a regular basis.
This past lazy Saturday I was reminded of my personal favorite Palin-ism, that we should create laws "based on the God of the bible and the Ten Commandments." Now, is the United States a Christian nation?
What impact will these cases have on future church-state issues, especially those involving the display of religious symbols, such as nativity scenes, on government property?

And to state the obvious, the Mosaic Laws were written in the Mosaic Law and the Ten Commandments were written in The Ten Commandment law. And if Sabbath was Jewish or to end at the cross, God would have written it in this Jewish law.
But no, God wrote it in His eternal Ten Commandment moral law that is for everyone.
See the Ten Commandments and the Mosaic Law for a detailed comparison of these two laws.
Digging through the flavors, the Orthodox list seems to be the best to work with. We shall state each of the rules in turn, and then discuss whether America has based its laws upon it, or should have done so. If we were to create a law based on this commandment, we would be living in a strict Christian theocracy. Actually, in America you can make exactly as many idols as you desire. This one is beaten back (thankfully) by our freedom of speech (that pesky First Amendment again). S., the country that Sarah seems to not know, adultery is mostly legal.
Thinking carefully on the matter, you have to wonder if there is a double standard in effect here. Perhaps she wants this one to be law, but you are under no obligation to follow it, thank God. This has literally no bearing whatsoever in our nation unless you are trying to find an open bank. There are some rules on the books in some states that punish it; you can for example rack up a fine Maryland, but following the decision of Lawrence v.
