    If we take the “Ten Commandments” and invert them to ‘anti-commandments’—in concept-- which of them would still hold true? For example, any “Thou shalt not ….” Becomes “Thou shalt … (do the opposite),” or “You shall not bear false witness” becomes “You shall bare true witness,” rather than ‘You will speak the truth or speak nothing.’

    Let it be requested that we avoid expositions on the meaning of the Commandments through New Testament eyes—there are enough other threads on that.

    Almost 48 hours, and 3 votes and one reply; yeah maybe somebody's thinking, but if that's all, it's okay.
