Bulletin Insert - Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments

The Fifth Commandment

Sing or recite LSB 851



·        God forbids us to take the life of another person.  This forbids murder as we commonly understand it, as well as abortion, euthanasia, infanticide, and suicide.

·        Drug abuse and other means of abusing our bodies is forbidden in this commandment.

·        This commandment also forbids hatred of our neighbor.

 

 ·        Lawful government, a gift of God, has the right, but not the obligation, to execute criminals.  It also has the power to wage just wars.

 

·        This commandment requires us to love and support our neighbor by physical support, kindness, and forgiveness.  This is done by the love of Christ in us.  We cannot fulfill this commandment by our natural good intentions or by our attempt to fulfill God’s will.

Prayer:  Lord, we thank You for our health and that of our neighbors.  Shine Your love through us that we may promote well being in a sin sick world.  Amen.
