". . . no one will be declared righteous in His sight by observing the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of sin.

But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

~Romans 3:20-24

These are some of the laws of God.  Also known as the ten commandments.  These rules, if followed, would give us the perfect, peaceful earth that we all wish for.  If you look at His rules this way you'll understand that they are really more of a gift than they are a burden like some of our governments laws and rules are. Following these rules is not what gives you eternal life, belief in the death and resurrection of Jesus is what does that. Have you ever broken one of these rules? If so, you have sinned against God, and his son Jesus is the only person who you can ask for forgiveness. 

1. Do not worship any god except me. (Exodus 20:3)

2. Do not make idols that look like anything in the sky or on earth or in the ocean under the earth. Don't bow down and worship idols. I am the LORD your God, and I demand all your love. If you reject me, I will punish your families for three or four generations. But if you love me and obey my laws, I will be kind to your families for thousands of generations.(Exodus 20:4-6)

3. Do not misuse my name. I am the LORD your God, and I will punish anyone who misuses my name.(Exodus 20:7)

4. Remember that the Sabbath Day belongs to me. You have six days when you can do your work, but the seventh day of each week belongs to me, your God. No one is to work on that day--not you, your children, your slaves, your animals, or the foreigners who live in your towns. In six days I made the sky, the earth, the oceans, and everything in them, but on the seventh day I rested. That's why I made the Sabbath a special day that belongs to me.(Exodus 20:8-11)

5. Respect your father and your mother, and you will live a long time in the land I am giving you. (Exodus 20:12)

6. Do not murder.(>Exodus 20:13)

7. Be faithful in marriage.(Exodus 20:14)

8. Do not steal.(>Exodus 20:15)

9. Do not tell lies about others.(Exodus 20:16)

10. Do not want anything that belongs to someone else. Don't want anyone's house, wife or husband, slaves, oxen, donkeys or anything else.(Exodus 20:17) Exodus 20:3-17
