This boisterous arrogant fellow did not gave that answer. Instead, he spit in the face of the fellow he was bashing: “You Catholics don’t even know the second commandment:
- You shall not make yourself any graven image to worship it or any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down yourself to them or serve them; for I Yahuweh your Creator am a jealous Creator, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me, but showing mercy and steadfast love to a thousand generations of those who love Me and keep My commandments.
Blow me away! This Bible beater counts Yahushua’s words for nothing? Isn’t public knowledge Yahushua’s reply to smart alecks of His time? Yahushua’s reply,
And one of their number, a lawyer, asked Him a question to test Him.
Teacher, which kind of commandment is great and important (the principal kind) in the Law? [Some commandments are light–which are heavy?]
And He replied to him, You shall love the Master your Almighty with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect). [Deu_6:5]
This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment.
And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself. [Lev_19:18]
These two commandments sum up and upon them depend all the Law and the Prophets.
Regardless! No amount of cleverness or good intentions can avail us in Your sight. It is to You that ALL things must revert to, including our own selves.
Our destiny is in Your bosom. You long for our return. You are aware of all our shenanigans. Still, You long for us to come to our senses. Better than that?
- You are the cause for any of us to come to our senses or quit our shenanigans and return to You.
His love in my heart for all, thiaBasilia.
