While many reverends/preachers claim that this statement is sign of a God jealousy, they have no idea of what they are talking about. The writer of the 10 Commandments was idealistic fool. The 1st Commandment means that there should be only one God as more that one can lead to hate and wars.
At present time, we all see the effect of having more that one form of a God. Different religious groups hate each others and wars were wage in past as they are now. Unless one religion will be establish ( or mine favorite – NONE), there will be no peace on this planet. Why the writer was “idealistic fool”?. Due to human nature and present form of advancement in education, we ( as humans) will always look for answer of origin and fear of unknown. We will always look for help from mystical entity and blame that mystical entity for our “screw-up”. Religions were “created” by unknown entity to divide the Earth population for reason unknown at present time. We can speculate, but no proof of that will come any time soon.
“Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.”
Typical human behavioral – Jealousy, Hate and Love. This prove that the 10 Commandments was written by a human – not a God. God do not have emotions, but if does then will prove that he is a human and in a sense, we all are Gods. Since we are on top of food chain, we all are Gods to other life forms presented on this planet. As humans – we can take any life, but no any life form can take a human life. The good example would be technology and stupidity. One can get on a boat and kill a shark – shark can not get on land or a decent size boat, but stupidity would be when someone enter sharks infested water and attempt to “play” with them. No other life form, but humans, can destroy this planet. Again, warning – if you create many Gods, them you will destroy your self.
“Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.”
You can see in this statement, that a human wrote this commandment as the writer refer the God/Lord as third person. This is very simple – do not call a God, unless you are in distress. This specially apply to females during sexual ecstasy. Remember, it is a jealous God as he can not have a sex.
“Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the
seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.”
This is very powerful and inhuman statement. Again, the writer, refer the Lord/God as third person.
It basically state that you should work your ass off for six days and take a brake in one day. We all know that one day is not enough and millions do not have desire to work at all, but they praise the Lord. We, working class, pay for them. Why six days and not five or seven. For a God, should be just snap a finger. If the God just snap a finger and took him all day to do it, then he rested for six days. After all, it is a hard work to snap a finger. The writer had it all wrong. We should work one day and rest for six days.
“Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.”
No need for comment. We all should respect everyone. Just because I am writing this, does not mean that I have no respect to other people. I do, and feel sorry for some.
“Thou shalt not kill.”
According to the book “Bible”, only a God can kill or give a permition to kill.
Does this refer to a humans only or any life form. I assume that this refer to human life only as would be impassable to avoid some life form destruction. Does that mean, that in self defense, some can take a human life – NO. There is always way to stop the opponent without killing, but a lawyer will take everything you have. This is why the police have orders to “shot to kill”. How about a “holly war” – NO, unless a God give permition to do so in his name. How do some people assume that they have the permition from God to rage a war?. Strong mental disorder, hallucinogenic drugs, desire to be above others and desire of great wealth. There is one more “thing” that the writer forgot – we are animals after all and killing is in our blood. Some can control the instinct, but most are blood thirsty ma..f..
“Thou shalt not commit adultery.”
Come on, you have to be kidding me. It is not in human nature and the writer shows no knowledge of. What it is adultery?. In simple form, screwing some other man’s wife or vice verse. Is about a jealousy and pride of possession. The question is, what is so bad about?. As a man, I do not want to “own” a female and if she want to go with someone else, the door is open. Then again, I am not a “normal” man – this article is proof of that. One mate for life or marriage, are concept “design” by a various religions and it is “amazing” of how many religious people commit adultery. There are some people that are happy with single mate for life, but that is very rare. Let be realistic about – human life evolve around sex and if I get a chance (like most male,female), I go for. Hell do not have enough space for my sins.
“Thou shalt not steal”
Stealing is allowed only by permition from a God. Any other (normal) people are not allowed.
Stealing it is a sign of mental deprivation and have no cure for. Those people are sick and should be in mental institution. Sad to said, but out of 10 people – 7 will have the sickness and we do not have capacity to accommodate those people. This “sickness” is not inherited, but acquire from environment ( parents, siblings, friends, neighbours, political, entertainment or religious idol). Some can control, but the desire is very strong. Adultery it is not stealing as no person can own another and it is consent act.
“Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.”
Lie is bad. It comes from fear of being ridiculous and unwanted. Many people were condemn to death or life in prison, because of false witness. People lie to gain wealth, power – like politicians or religious figures. Check the facts, before opening your mouth.
“Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.”
I am getting confuse of this statement. It does means that person should have no desire for neighbour possession, but that was mention in #8 (stealing) or – “nor his ass”- would means a sexual desire. I know that there are some sick people that do not mind to have a sex with a animal, but how to hell, some can have a sex with a house. The writer is repeating him self and this is another proof that the 10 Commandments was written by a human. God do not make mistakes – or does he?.
Well, that depend of what religious person I will talk to. To be honest with you, I too, would lost my mind after listen to a burning bush or I already lost it by writing this article. You decide, but remember, I do moderate the comments.
