    Yes. The Bible should become the moving force in our lives as God’s spirit enters our hearts and minds and directs us to a wise use of God’s Word. You, as a teacher of the Bible, can be an instrument of God’s spirit, cultivating in the learner the desire to know and to be moved himself by God’s spirit, led according to the example of Christ and not men. In this way those whom you teach will know what is required and expected in high moral principles and they will be stirred to follow Christ. They will be fortified for any activity that may be ahead of them to which the spirit of God will lead them

      Being forewarned, they can be forearmed as Peter pointed out: “You, therefore, beloved ones, having this advance knowledge, be on your guard that you may not be led away with them by the error of the law-defying people and fall from your own steadfastness. No, but go on growing in the undeserved kindness and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.”

    Valid human laws are always in agreement with God's Law.

    The only laws of the ten commandments that are enforceable are Thou shall not murder, Thou shall not steal and Thou shall not bear false witness in a court of law. The other laws are not enforceable unless you wish to live in a country like Iran or Saudi Arabia.

    The Bible does not focus primarily on matters of secular (i.e., non-religious) law, but what it does say about law had a great influence on later legal systems in many parts of the world. The excerpts below also show that ancient Hebrews took the existence of a sophisticated legal system for granted. They also suggest that the Bible’s lessons for social norms are complex. On the one hand, many passages emphasize respect for authority and acceptance of traditional social hierarchies that kept slaves, servants, the poor, and women in subordinate roles. On the other hand, other passages recognize the need for treating all people fairly and for avoiding the corruption that wealth and power make possible. A few passages also point to an underlying equality among all people.

    Yes, the Ten Commandments are laws that God gave us to be better persons.

    For historical reference definitely. It is one of her first legal books so it has historic value. More then that some of the concepts such as proportionally, the same legal system for all classes of society, not allowing bribes, etc. Still have value.

    I disagree with Alex. Only commandments 6 through 10 should have anything to do with the government. The rest can be safely ignored.

    It has. Many of history’s greatest jurists used the Bible for inspiration.
