Why the 10 Commandments are important to today's teens | VYBZ Influencer Photo Session

Have you ever heard of the 10 Commandments? They are a set of fundamental rules that God gave to Moses on Mount Sinai. The commandments provide guidance on how we can live a righteous life and be in a healthy relationship with God.

Let's take a look at Exodus 20:1-2: "And God spoke all these words: 'I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.'"

This introduction is significant because it establishes the authority of the 10 Commandments. God personally delivered them to the Israelites who were His chosen people. So why are the 10 Commandments important to us today, as teenagers?

First, the commandments teach us how to love God and our neighbor. We are called to honor our parents, not steal, not lie, not covet, and not commit adultery. These rules help us maintain a loving and respectful attitude towards those around us, ensuring we live positive and peaceful lives.


Second, the commandments help us understand our sinfulness and our need for a savior. No one on earth can follow the commandments perfectly; we all fall short. But we have a loving God who wants to forgive us and draw us closer to Him. The Bible teaches us that God is merciful and will forgive us when we confess our sins and ask for His forgiveness.

Now, let's talk about 30A Vybz, and how it can help us grow closer to God. 30A Vybz is an online community and teen gospel mentorship that aims to help teenagers strengthen their faith and connect with other teens who share similar beliefs.

Through 30A Vybz and the #vybztryb members, teens can find resources and mentors who can guide us in our personal journeys and passions. We can learn about the Bible, attend events, ask questions, and share our stories with other teens who walk alongside us.

30A Vybz is a place where teens can come to make a difference in the world. We believe that everyone has a unique story to share or gift to offer, and we want to help teens find their passion and use it to make a positive impact on the world. We do this through our mentorship and one-on-one creative content photo sessions and teach them to be micro influencers.

By following the 10 Commandments and being a part of a supportive community, we can grow closer to God and become the best versions of ourselves. We’ll also be able to truly live out John 10:10, which says: "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."

In conclusion, the 10 Commandments are still relevant today, and they provide a blueprint for a moral and ethical life. Most Americans are familiar with the Ten Commandments. Even those who have little religious background know the Ten Commandments are a list of rules given by God. The ten commandments can be found in Exodus 20:1-17 and Deuteronomy 5:6-21. They are divided into two groups, the first group contains the commands relating towards God and the second group the commands regarding others. Yet, the lists of ten commandments found in the Catholic catechism are different from that taught in most Protestant churches. The 10 Commandments:

1. You shall have no other gods before me.

2. You shall not make for yourself an idol or worship any other gods.

3. You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain.

4. Remember the Sabbath day and keep it holy.

5. Honor your father and mother.

6. You shall not murder.

7. You shall not commit adultery.

8. You shall not steal.

9. You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

10. You shall not covet your neighbor's house, spouse or possessions.

While some of these commandments may seem outdated or irrelevant in our modern society, they still provide a moral framework for us to follow. For example, the commandment to not murder is still applicable today, as murder is universally seen as a heinous crime. The commandment to not commit adultery is also still important, as cheating can have damaging effects on relationships and families. Ultimately, the 10 commandments remind us to prioritize our relationship with God, and to treat others with respect and love.

My goal is to help teens find their voice and use it to make a difference in the world. As a faith-based photographer, I will help teens share their story with others, and will help them to inspire others to be confident and beautiful in their own skin.
