Thou Shall Not Steal

on May 19, 2010

If God did not think that we should have private ownership of anything, then why would he have a commandment that specifically says not to steal, because stealing seems to imply that one person is taking something that doesn’t belong to him when he steals.

Furthermore, the Ten Commandments say not to covet thy neighbor’s goods, so the redistribution of wealth in my opinion is saying that someone who has less than someone else wants stuff equally divided, but isn’t that one person then having the desires of what someone else has?
