Not sure where you are going with this but it sounds like we (man) will do as we see fit to do regardless of anything else. This is because of free will. We know what we should do but we don't always do it.

Free will is often controlled by excessive or premature desire. I may eat more ice cream than I should leading to becoming fat or unpopular since other people want to eat too. Or I may eat a food, or attempt to consummate a relationship before it is ripe leading to sickness or a rape charge. Free will really requires self-control (ie: maturity). If we are not responsible for our actions, then no good result can come as we did not follow the real moral law of our original human nature as children of God.

What is the greatest commandment and how do people react to it?

According to Mark 12:29-30 the most important commandment is to love God with all of your heart, with all of your soul, with all of your mind, and with all of your strength.As far as how people react to appears that most people in the world ignore it. For me the greatest commandment is Jesus' "Love thy neighbour as thyself" which I believe is also a part of Scriptures of all faith.; Matthew 19 : 17-19 KJV : . . . if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments. He saith unto him, Which? Jesus said, Thou shalt do no murder, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.Sadly, when confronted by other faiths, most Christians mistranslates it as "Thou shalt love thy fellow Christians ...."When not confronted with other faiths, but confronted with other denominations of Christianity, most Christians translate it as "Thou shalt love the members of thy denominations....."I disagree that 'most' Christians do not follow these commandments. There are a minority of Christians who do not understand these and therefore give the remainder of Christians a bad name.

How many commandments are there?

there are ten. 1. thou shalt not have other gods before me 2. thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image 3. thou shalt not take the name of the lord thy god in vain 4. remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy 5. honour thy mother and thy father 6. thou shalt not kill 7. thou shalt not commit adultery 8. thou shalt not steal 9. thou shalt not bear false witness to thy neighbor 10. thou shalt not covet hope that helps, ---yodude86--- Actually there are 12 of them because in Matthew Jesus gave us two more and they are located in Matthew 22:37-40 and they say this! And Jesus said unto him thou shalt love the Lord thy God with ALL thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. this is the 11th commandment. and the 12th is like unto it thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. on these commandments hang all the and the prophets. ---hallnicole49--- I heard that there are way more than that. Over four hundred! Not saying that you have to believe it. They include the twelve previously stated plus other like:" Thou shalt not eat of a split hoof". I don't believe it but some do. In the Torah there are 613 commandments. This is the covenant between the Jewish people and G-d.
