Reverend Huckabee Trashes 8th Commandment on Christmas Day

• www.lewrockwell.com/blog

How sad that on this, the birth day of the Prince of Peace, "Christian" warmonger Mike Huckabee breaks one of the Lord's Commandments, "Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness Against Thy Neighbor."

About Ron Paul, Huckabee states today to Fox News's Chris Wallace: "He has a core of fanatical believers, and they don’t represent mainstream Americans. It is not okay for Iran to have a nuclear weapon."

Huckabee knows well that Dr. Paul has never said that he thinks it is perfectly OK for Iran to have a nuclear weapon. As a matter of fact, being a true man of peace, he has many times stated that he does not want anyone to have nuclear weapons. As he has said for years, he does not believe in bombing Iran into oblivion based on claims that are even more spurious than the lies used to push the attack in Iraq almost eight years (and hundreds of billions of dollars) ago.

The Ten Commandments are given, by Moses, in Exodus chapter 20, in the Bible. A repeat of the whole thing is given, again by Moses, in Deuteronomy chapter 5, in the Bible. Because of slight differences in the way these two chapters are written in the original Ancient Hebrew, there is some disagreement as to the numbering of the Commandments.

The "Exodus thought" is to combine the following into one commandment, the 1st Commandment (NIV):

"3 You shall have no other gods before me.

"4 You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 5 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments."

The Exodus thought continues to round out the Ten by splitting verse 17 into 2 commandments (NIV):

"17 You shall not covet your neighbor’s house.

"You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

The "Deuteronomy thought" does it the other way. It keeps the following as 2 separate commandments (NIV):

"7 You shall have no other gods before me.

"8 You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. 9 You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, 10 but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments."

Then, at the end, the Deuteronomy thought keeps the "covet" commands combined (NIV):

"21 You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife. You shall not set your desire on your neighbor’s house or land, his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

Because of the above, there is a toggling in belief about False Witness, between whether it is the 8th Commandment or the 9th Commandment.

A study of the ancient Hebrew of what is traditionally accepted as the way Moses wrote it, will provide you with the distinctions that clarify which way is correct.

I believe "Thou shalt not bear false witness ..." is the 9th commandment, is it not?
