Someone suggested to me recently that the 10 Commandments were out-dated, not enough law for this society. I beg to lovingly differ.
Conflict in point: 15) “Do not steal. Exodus 20
Not camel. Not lamb. Not land. Not tent. Not wife. Not husband. Not children. Not internet information. Not cable TV service. Not medical information. Not money. Not car. Not personal identity.
What part about ‘do not steal’ do we not understand?
Here’s a few question to clarify.
Did you earn it?
Did you buy it?
Did you create it?
Did someone of their own non-coerced volition give it to you because they loved you and/or wanted to help you?
Then if you take it you are a thief! You broke the law. You stole it!
Get it? Got it! Good!
GOD gave us 10 commandments. Man refused to obey them; so man made more laws and is still making laws. And NOT ONE OF THOSE LAWS has EVER transformed ONE human being from being a law-breaker to a law-keeper.
24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. Galatians 3 [source]
Life example: There’s a woman. When the speed limit is 45, she drives 45; not because she doesn’t want to go faster; not because she is afraid she will get a ticket from a police officer; but because she loves JESUS and He said to obey every law that does not violate HIM. (Acts 5:29) So she does. Not perfectly, but consistently.
