I've asked believers about that one and they think it's a command not to murder.I'm not a believer, but the big ten thou shalt nots are a pretty good set of rules for life.
Thou shalt not kill, is an absolute imperative.
It is the human conditionHas that stopped any killings since then?
See, that's the thing.If We followed the big ten more closely, then no one would be an imminent threat.
See, that's the thing.
The ten cs are simply a convention followed by believers and possibly others who think it's a good way to go thru life... so it works for them ... maybe.
