Aren’t the Ten Commandments outmoded?
No, the Ten Commandments (listed below) are by no means the product of a particular time. They express man’s fundamental obligations towards God and neighbour, which are always and everywhere valid.
The Ten Commandments are commandments of reason just as they are also part of the binding revelation of God. They are so fundamentally binding that no one can be dispensed from keeping these commandments.
(taken from the Catholic Youth Catechism)
