Are the Commandments still valid today?

Doug’s Bible Reference: “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15
David’s Bible Answer: Seventh-day Adventists are conditioned to think that this verse says, “”If ye love me, keep the Ten Commandments.” but this is not what Jesus said, rather He said, “If ye love me, keep MY commandments.” John 14;15 teaches us that if Christians love Him then they ought to obey the teachings of Jesus Christ.
Jesus clearly defines what commandments to the church are: “This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.” John 15:12. Do you love Jesus? Well if you do, then you ought to obey Christ and love one another!
“He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.” John 14:21
