Thou shalt keep the Golden Rule
The Golden Rule is found in 2 places:
Jesus Christ Fulfilled the Golden Rule
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
Thou Shalt Not StealThe eight commandment is, Thou shalt (shall) not steal. Greed is at the foundation of stealing. To steal is a common violation. We are guilty of stealing many things.
“For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.”
What is the greatest commandment of Jesus?
According to Biblical text, the commandments represent the utterances of God on Mount Sinai. There are biblical passages that also refer to ten commandments being written by God on stone, and it is widely though not universally held that these were the Ten Commandments as detailed. The commandments were inscribed on what is called "tablets of stone", also referred to as "tablets of testimony" or "tablets of the Covenant", that God gave to Moses. Moses then gave them to the people of Israel in the third month after their Exodus from Egypt. Israel's receipt of the commandments occurred on the third day of preparations at the foot of the mount.
After receiving the commandments and returning to Mount Sinai, Moses saw that the Israelites had "defiled themselves", and that his brother, Aaron, had made a Golden Calf and an altar in front of it. Moses, in terrible anger, broke the tablets. God later offered Moses to carve two other tablets, to replace the ones he smashed. God himself appears as the writer. This second set, brought down from Mount Sinai by Moses, was placed in the Ark of the Covenant, hence designated as the "Ark of the Testimony."
Lets be Biblical Biblical Law
The Bible also makes other Biblical references to the commandments. References to them and the consequences for not following them are found throughout the book of Deuteronomy.
In the New Testament, Jesus refers to the Biblical commandments in several verses, and condenses them into two general commands:
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind." This is the great general commandment that Jesus took from the book of Deuteronomy 6:5. And a second is like unto it: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.
These words quoted by Jesus appear in the Old Testament, as in Deuteronomy 6:5 and Leviticus 19:18 respectively.
