    Most British declared that only six out of the Ten Commandments are “important principles to live by”

    According to a latest poll, most British declared that only six out of the Ten Commandments are “important principles to live by”.

    International Internet-based market research company YouGov asked 1,680 British about their views on the Ten Commandments regardless of their faith. The figures showed that Britons respect the commandments against murder, theft and lying, but see keeping the Sabbath day holy as not that relevant.

    Ninety-three percent of those surveyed viewed “Thou shalt not kill” and “Thou shalt not steal” as the most important principles to live by. These commandments were meaningful to 94% of Christians and 93% of non- Christians.

    The command against bearing false witness about others (lying) also ranked high, with 87% Brits believing its significance in everyday life. Another priority among Brits is not committing adultery, with 73% of them believing in faithfulness in marriage.

    More than half of Brits, or 69%, considered “Honor thy father and thy mother” as another valuable life principle. Meantime, six out of ten (61%) of the population respect God’s command “Thous shalt not covet other people’s possessions.”

    The survey also showed that most Britons see four Commandments related to the practice of religion as unimportant. Aside from not valuing the commandment to keep the Sabbath day holy, only 20%, or one if five Brits support “I am the Lord thy God, You shall have no other God before me.”

    The Christian Institute welcomed YouGov’s latest survey. It said the research showed “the deep influence of the Christian faith on Britain.”

    “Our nation still looks to the truths of the Bible to set its moral compass on issues like murder, theft, lying and adultery,” the UK-based Christian charity added.
