The Calgary Secular Church New 10 Commandments

Central to the mission of the Calgary Secular Church is a new and improved set of 10 commandments. They are as follows:
First Commandment: Do not do to others what you would not want them to do to you.
Second Commandment: In all things, strive to cause no harm.
Third Commandment: Treat your fellow human beings, your fellow living things, and the world in general with love, honesty, faithfulness and respect.
Fourth Commandment: Do not overlook evil or shrink from administering justice, but always be ready to forgive wrongdoing freely admitted and honestly regretted.
Fifth Commandment: Live life with a sense of joy and wonder.
Sixth Commandment: Always seek to be learning something new.
Seventh Commandment: Test all things; always check your ideas against the facts, and be ready to discard even a cherished belief if it does not conform to them.
Eighth Commandment: Never seek to censor or cut yourself off from dissent; always respect the right of others to disagree with you.
Ninth Commandment: Form independent opinions on the basis of your own reason and experience; do not allow yourself to be led blindly by others.
Tenth Commandment: Question everything.
We trust you will find these superior to the Old Testament 10 commandments in every way. For a full discussion of these commandments, please see Adam Lee's original page regarding them. The New Ten Commandments


  1. Very logical and necessary commandments!I really liked it.By the way,can you inform me in what circumstances church loans are provided? I also need some feedback regarding Griffin Church Loans.

  2. Wonderful. I determine wisdom to include compassion, because anyone who's not compassionate lacks an important element of wisdom. Your 10 commandments cover this pretty well plus a welcome emphasis on how actions should reflect convictions.

  3. Well said. I would like to join one of your gatherings.
