WHY THE COMMANDMENTS?

WHY THE COMMANDMENTS?
As we read the Bible, we can see that God gave man commandments and laws to follow. Some people reject this, while others try to put them into practice. Unfortunately, despite the best will in the world, it is impossible to observe all laws.

Why would God given laws that we can not really keep them ? For what reason did God gave laws to man? The fact is that, they are there to show us things that we have become: liars, thieves, proud … As there is no need to provide rules of conduct in heaven!
