Eight Commandment of God, Thou Shalt Not Steal

Sins of the eight Commandment

"You shall not steal." The eighth commandment forbids unjustly taking or keeping the goods of one's neighbor and wronging him in any way with respect to his goods.

The Holy Bible: Book Of Revelation The Holy Bible: Book Of Revelation

"You shall not steal.[185]

The seventh commandment forbids unjustly taking or keeping the goods of one's neighbor and wronging him in any way with respect to his goods." (185. Ex 20:15; Deut 5:19; Mt 19:18.)

The Eight Commandment meaning and definitions
The act of taking feloniously the personal property of another without his consent and knowledge; theft; larceny.

Stealing is taking by force, threat, intimidation, coercion, or deception what belongs to someone else. At least forty different synonyms for stealing exist in the English language, but even these varied and descriptive terms do not comprise everything the Eighth Commandment and its statutes cover.

Stealing, arguably the most transgressed of the Commandments, is often at the root of the more serious crimes of violence and murder. It is also one of today's most overlooked crimes. The United States government not only winks at this sin, it is guilty of legislating and participating in theft in numerous ways.

Eighth Commandment Bible Study

A new study indicates that theft of church funds is shockingly common.
The problem is too much trust creating opportunities for temptation and sin

The Second Epistle to the Corinthians says that those who give to the church must do so willingly and freely, for "God loves a cheerful giver."

Paul instructed Christians to work so that they might eat from what they had earned rather than mooching off the fruit of someone else's labor:

2 Thessalonians 3:10-12

King James Version (KJV)

 10For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat.

 11For we hear that there are some which walk among you disorderly, working not at all, but are busybodies.

 12Now them that are such we command and exhort by our Lord Jesus Christ, that with quietness they work, and eat their own bread.

King Solomon cautioned his sons against get-rich-quick schemes:

Proverbs 28:20-22

King James Version (KJV)

 20A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.

 21To have respect of persons is not good: for for a piece of bread that man will transgress.

 22He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.
