op,although you are well meaning,you are totally wrong about keeping the laws of the torah.we are called to follow the ten commandments as these stand forever and can noway be changed or removed.the laws of ordinances were nailed to the cross with our lord jesus christ.we are no longer under the curse of the law which is death but we are never the less commanded to keep the ten commandments.good luck to you keeping the law of the torah if you think you are justified by doing this you are still under the curse of the law.we keep the commandments because it pleases our father to do so but by grace we are saved from the curse of the law.il repeat it for you,the laws of ordinances were nailed to the cross with jesus,he became our curse as it says cursed is anyone who hangs from the tree.

The ten statements .
For some reason, many people have the impression that there are only ten commandments. Everyone has heard of the "Ten Commandments," or at least they've heard of the movie.
I'll tell you a secret. There's no such thing!
Nowhere in the Torah is the phrase "ten commandments" used at all. When referring to these ten, the Torah always calls them the Aseres Had'vorim, the "Ten Statements," or the "Ten Words." In Aramaic, that comes out as "Aseres Hadibros," which is what we usually call them. It means the same thing: the "Ten Statements."
The Hebrew words for "Ten Commandments" would be "Aseres Hamitzvos." But no such term exists anywhere in the Torah or in Rabbinical Writings. Anywhere.
However, in Exodus 34:28, the King James' Bible uses the term "ten commandments" to translate the phrase, which is absolutely incorrect.
The original Hebrew, however, doesn't say that. The Hebrew says "Ten Statements." The same is true in Deuteronomy 4:13 and 10:14.
So get this: Millions of people in the world are confused because of a poor translation in the King James' Bible. They all think that when the Torah refers to "doing Hashem's Commandments," the Torah is referring to those Ten Statements that Hashem spoke at Mount Sinai, and no more! And the truth is, they're wrong!
To be sure, the Ten Statements are also Commandments. They are ten of the 613 Commandments of the Torah. Also, they represent ten categories of Commandments, which means that all the 613 can be represented by those ten, but there are far more than ten Commandments in the Torah. (The reason Hashem made those Ten Statements will be discussed, Hashem willing, in another article, possibly on the Holiday Gateway for Shavuos. No promise.)
So there are actually 613 Commandments in the Torah, but as I have shown above, most of them don't apply to most people.
So what are those Commandments? Well, I hope to get to that too, Hashem willing. But first, I hope to discuss more about the Jewish relationship with G-d.
I did not write this but thought it was very enlightening . When Yeshua tells us to keep the Commandments , He refers to the Torah . The Torah is not just for the jewish people , the Torah is for everyone who loves God . A lot of truth has got lost in translation .
