As Christians we believe that Jehovah God wrote and gave the 10 Commandments to His people through Moses on Mount Sinai more than 3000 years ago and that they are the rules by which we should live. In fact, the 10 Commandments are accepted by Christianity, Judaism and Islam as the basis for God's laws. And if Jehovah is God (ie, "the supernatural being conceived as the perfect and omnipotent and omniscient originator and ruler of the universe" - Google Web Definition), then He created us and knows the best way for us to live.
We believe that the 10 Commandments were given as guidelines for practical, fruitful, daily living and that they are still relevant today because God, being omniscient, knew the kind of lives we'd be living 3000 years after the commandments were first written.
We invite you to explore these timeless principles, which can transform our lives.
just10 is a series of talks about the relevance of the 10 Commandments today, and it takes place on Clapham Common from the 13-24 September 2004. just10 are ten humorous, life-changing and highly relevant presentations for 21st century Londoners like you! Author and evangelist J.John will be speaking at this great event. He is regarded as one of the most creative Christian speakers and writers in the UK and has an appeal that transcends gender, age, culture and occupation. His much loved art of storytelling helps people to discover spiritual meaning in a way that makes sense of everyday life.
