Impossible on what level? Daily, or forever? Can the commandments be kept, of course.
Having said this, it is human nature to be naughty once in awhile.
There is a hazard here I want to make certain is understood: impossible is not excuse. Do we occasionally fall short?, yes. Particularly if we sincerely know no better.
However, deliberate disobedience, especially prolonged or repeated disobedience, with the excuse that "its impossible to live up to," is not at all what Jesus and G-d meant.
This gets into our animal nature and our spirit nature, and the clash between them, and to which one we surrender and subordinate ourselves. We are animal in essence. But we have the gift of spirit, and the gift of free will in which direction we prefer to lean. Our choices determine our reward, our "karma."
I'm not sure exactly where I stand here? I'm sure we can avoid breaking 'most' of the commandments by shear will power, except I have problems with one inparticual, lol.
I would assume most men do:
27. Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28. But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
I don't see how I can NOT fall short of keeping this commandment, juan.
Even so, my point was more about the idea that we 'Need' Jesus to cover our shortcomings, and less about deliberate disobiedience. I'd like to think that I 'try', but in all honesty...I fail often, and I suspect that most people do as well.
