The Ten Commandments – Video #19
“You Shall Not Bear False Witness Against Your Neighbor.”

“Bearing False Witness” connotes a legal setting, but in the Christian context, with the teachings of Jesus, “TRUTH” is an important part of our cultural and faith “identity”.

Fr. Bill discusses the Death Penalty and how the 5th Commandment plays into God’s formation of his people from retaliation to either forgiveness, or a strict prescription on what forms of punishment are acceptable, and not acceptable in the eyes of God and the Standards God has given us to live.
