Nope. The ten commandments are mostly "shall not, do not" instructions.
That's ok. It's good to avoid certain things. However the New Testament
goes far beyond this, instructing us to go to great lengths to love
one another. In this the law truly is fulfilled -John

But you must realize things about the unseen world behind the scenes. What

Poem From A Six Year Old Girl In Tennessee
(as told by her grandmother
– name unknown)
"God is a Spirit and He needs bodies.
He lives in my
mommy and daddy. When I'm loving
them, I'm loving God.
God needs bodies.
Some have lights in them and know

everybody, but they don't know it and they
don't have any lights inside. When
they find out God loves them,
their lights will go on."
