Obey these to the Letter, and You'll see results. The difference between wisdom and law is only priority set upon it, and if is mandatory or a requirement. There is nothing unwise about not stealing but the point at which it becomes law makes it mandatory not to steal. This does not change the consequences involved with stealing. The consequence of guilt and the clouded conscience or the consequences of social discontent amoung friends, the loss of one that might have been considered a friend, and in as much imprisonment. Therefore, in comparing common law to God's law there is no distinguishing the two at many points governing many religions, nations, and systems of goverment. Although, what may have been considered only an issue of religious wisdom has also been encorporated into law as with the issues of dress codes, and soliciting sex. The irony of it all is that 7,000 years ago Moses made an issue of dress codes, and to this day politicians still have not resolved how much should or shouldn't be worn. In Florida the police are patrolling the beaches with yard sticks and caculators to figure it out if a bikini really fits. I wonder what what Moses would say to Ceasar today, and if Archemedes could come up with an equation that would make it float..
IF ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE, MAKE MOSES WRITE THESE INTO LAW JESUS CHRIST! PROVERBS 22:6, and my point I HATE EVIL!
Do not bruise, cut, burn, nor sacrifice your children.
You are to punish your children for Lying.
You are to punish your children for Cheating.
You are to punish your children for Stealing, even within ones' own household.
You are to punish your children for Arguing.
You are to punish your children for Hitting.
You are to punish your children for sexual misconduct that they would not fondle themselves nor each other to prevent miscarriage, death in childbearing, and spread of disease.
Do not punish your children for what they have no words to explain nor understand.
Do not punish your children without explanation of worldly, and infinite consequence.
Do not punish your children by means of confinement for it is a root of rebellion.
You are to punish your children by spoken, or written phrase written to the thousandth time built on what they will do, will not do, and enjoy doing in obedience of these laws that they would hate evil, love good, and want to do what is right.
It is better to punish a child for an evil left undone than to have never punished them at all, and reward them for their works, that they would Hate Evil, Love Good, and want to do what is right.
on the subject of how practice is inclined towards perfection and a habit of thinking, only an attitude. It is all true an all applies to anyone at any age, myself included.
I as an messenger proclaimed,"That if what is popularly noted as evil is all that they recognize, and Moses not write these laws, then let him be cursed to bare horns like Satan, as popular belief would have it. Then maybe, these people will listen and obey. If he still does not write the law, even after being lost in the desert for 40 years. Let him drop dead at laying eyes on the land he was promised, and the oldest texts show that Moses had horns.
Have a nice day.
