As I wrote in the first part, the owner, the creator of a company has certain rights over the workers employed under his rule. The workers are pleased to have been selected. They wish to please the owner, so they diligently pursue their assigned tasks wanting to impress and be considered for a promotion. To achieve that, they know the rules should be followed, must be followed, or a dismissal of being fired.
The owner of this venture called for a meeting this afternoon after the storm had passed over the mountain top.
“Moses, it’s good to see you. I see you’ve brought a couple big pieces of stone with you.”
“Yes sir, just as you requested.”
“Thanks, now I’ll carve these rules in stone so they can’t be set ablaze as they could be if put on papyrus.”
Moses holds the tablets tight against his chest, as the finger of the creator starts carving. the tip of the finger burning hot engraving each letter a half inch into the granite. Finishing the first eight, the owner stops.
“When these are finished, I desire that you place them at the court hall to be viewed by all.
“Now before I finish this project, I need to explain these last two rules. This is our last physical meeting together until the son has his designated time among you reconciling all things unto himself, providing a way of redemption for all. The faithful will meet again in different surroundings. These last two rules should cover it. No more except the round-up conclusion. Here they are:
- Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.
- Thou shalt not covet they neighbor’s house, thy neighbor’s wife nor his manservant, nor his ox, nor anything that is thy neighbor’s.
“In case questions arise, I will explain further. They are both lies, deceits. When one bears a false testimony, he’s stealing by denying the truth. But the truth cannot be killed. It can only be covered up by lies and deceit.
And oh how dishonorable it is to want something so bad you’ll do anything to get it, even lying to yourself. These two last rules state the relationship to stealing, murder and committing adultery. When one covets something he does not have, the focus is changed to gratify the physical possession, which necessitates a change in the process of achievement.
“How far will you go to get what your neighbor has? His wife is his partner unto death, not yours. Don’t even think about it. You’ll be killing three friendships, plus the trust they have put in you. He’s got people doing his gardening and repairing the dwelling. He’s got a state of the art set of wheels. He’s got goats and sheep in that big barn of his. He plays games riding his camel. He comes near shouting in your face: ‘wow, what fun’, while you sit on that rocker and watch, wishing and desiring those things. Day after day they are paraded before you.
“Get to work and all these can be added to you.”
“Your forefather was deceived in the same way. Don’t let that happen to you.”
“These words as etched in stone convey the laws.”
“Moses, now you must post the stone tablets where everyone will see.”
“You can easily explain all of these 10 commandments with this easy to remember saying that the son will expound on further when he visits summarized by this:”
“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets”.
