“A SPECIAL REGARD FOR LIFE AND THE SAFETY OF OTHERS!” REPRISING THE SIXTH COMMANDMENT!


The sixth commandment is straight forward Exodus 20:13
[13] Thou shalt not kill.

The sixth commandment requires that we regard the life and the safety of others as we do our own. Magistrates and their officers, and witnesses testifying the truth, do not break this command.

Self-defence is lawful; but much which is not deemed murder by the laws of man, is such before God. Furious passions, stirred up by anger or by drunkenness, are no excuse: more guilty is murder in duels, which is a horrible effect of a haughty, revengeful spirit.

All fighting, whether for wages, for renown, or out of anger and malice, breaks this command, and the bloodshed therein is murder. To tempt men to vice and crimes which shorten life, may be included. Misconduct, such as may break the heart, or shorten the lives of parents, wives, or other relatives, is a breach of this command. This command forbids all envy, malice, hatred, or anger, all provoking or insulting language. The destruction of our own lives is here forbidden. This commandment requires a spirit of kindness, longsuffering, and forgiveness.

In the following, we will discover those legal areas Satan will bring temptation before us to cause a stumble and like the Israelites only consider the actual act of murder as what this commandment offers when in reality we will find more of Satan’s deceptions.

Yeshua reveals the full meaning of this commandment; according to which we must be judged hereafter, and therefore ought to be ruled now.

All rash anger is heart murder. By our brother, here, we are to understand any person, though ever so much below us, for we are all made of one blood “Raca,” is a scornful word, and comes from pride: “Thou fool,” is a spiteful word, and comes from hatred. Malicious slanders and censures are poison that kills secretly and slowly.

Christ told them that how light soever they made of these sins, they would certainly be called into judgment for them. We ought carefully to preserve Christian love and peace with all our brethren; and if at any time there is a quarrel, we should confess our fault, humble ourselves to our brother, making or offering satisfaction for the wrong done in word or deed: and we should do this quickly; because, till this is done, we are unfit for communion with God in holy ordinances.

And when we are preparing for any religious exercises, it is good for us to make that an occasion of serious reflection and self-examination. What is here said is very applicable to our being reconciled to God through Christ. While we are alive, we are on the way to his judgement seat; after death, it will be too late.

When we consider the importance of the case, and the uncertainty of life, how needful it is to seek peace with God, without delay!

God is our refuge and strength
