The Ten Commandments revisited: 6. Do Not Murder

Apr 18, 2019 by

from The Conservative Woman: WE continue Dennis Prager’s elucidation of the best moral code ever invented, a repeat of his masterful series on the Ten Commandments that we ran last year, with the sixth commandment which most of us know as ‘Thou shalt not kill’. It means quite simply do not murder. Never more was there need for this commandment to be heeded. Amidst the handwringing that takes place we hear little of that moral rule – thou shalt not kill. How many schools or parents teach their...

The Ten Commandments: 5. Honour Your Father and Mother

Apr 17, 2019 by

from TCW: The Fifth Commandment is critical for the maintenance of society itself. Honour thy father and mother: Prager notes here the distinction between this and ‘love’ which, interestingly, is not required. This is the first of the commandments that deals not with relations between humans and God, but between fellow humans. It is a terrible and sad indictment of society today that so many children have no father to honour or love. Watch here...

The Ten Commandments Revisited: 1. I am the Lord Your God

Apr 13, 2019 by

from The Conservative Woman: LAST year in the week after Easter we decided to look again at the Ten Commandments. We found Dennis Prager’s series on them both clear and masterful. A year on, during which we have seen nothing advocated by way of moral teaching either by the Government or the Church of England in face of an unprecedented wave of knife crime and savagery by young people, we thought it timely to run this series again. It is not unreasonable to suggest that schools would be far...
