You shall not steal (Part 2)

by Brian Watts on February 17, 2019 in

In our first exposition, we considered the fact that the Eighth Commandment
presupposes the right to private property. We also saw that the Eighth Commandment
implies the principle of stewardship as a profound reminder that we own nothing, but
that everything has been entrusted to us by God as a gracious gift of His love. And then
we also saw that the Eighth Commandment explains very clearly why it is wrong to steal.
I seek therefore to build upon that today by specifically considering the vast spectrum
that is covered by the scope of this command, by asking in which ways it is possible for
us to violate the prohibition contained in the Eighth Commandment.
