If we conduct a survey in Christianity and Judaism, asking people to rank the sins of mankind according to their severity, almost all Christians and Jews would not be able to write the # 1 sin. This is very dangerous because people are not aware of this #1 sin. CAN YOU GIVE AN ANSWER?
To give you a clue, this sin is the easiest to commit, and yet it is the most destructive of all sins!
Theresa Wilkerson: Committing evil in the name of God. My basis is the Ten Commandments. The Commandment widely translated as "Do not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain," is imprecisely translated. The original Hebrew literally reads, "Do not carry the name of the Lord thy God in vain." And, the Commandment continues, "for God will not hold guiltless (literally, "will not cleanse") whoever carries His name in vain."
Arlene Aguilar: Breaking the first commandment in Ten Commandments of God given to Moses, even Christians are breaking the Number 1 commandment on that.
Lope Columna: Thanks, ladies! Your answers seems interesting, and you based them on the Ten Commandments, which seems obvious. But did you know that originally, there is ONLY ONE COMMANDMENT? The Ten Commandments were given only AFTER the sin of man. But before that there is only ONE COMMANDMENT. Your answers are good and close, but you don't hit the target. Let's see if others will also give their answers.
Theresa Wilkerson: Could this be it ? Be fruitful and increase in number. Fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground.
Errvey Lanusga: Is it to believe in one God only?
Lope Columna: Still, nobody hit the target. Keep thinking, for the right answer. You are being brought near the truth.
Theresa Wilkerson: OK, I think I might have it. This is from Mechanical Translation of, starting at 2:15. And YHWH (He exist) of Elohym (Powers) took the human and He caused him to be deposited in the garden of Eden ( ) to sever her and to guard her, and YWHW (He exist) of Elohym (Powers) directed (commanded) upon the human saying, from all of the trees of the garden an eating you will eat, and from the tree of function and dysfunction you will not eat from him given that in the day you eat from him dying you will die. So if I understand this right Hashem is saying choose Him (life), anything other than Him is death. This is Hashems first commandment.
Theresa Wilkerson: The more I think about this there are so many levels to what He is saying, I also see protect what Elohym has given us. I see serving Him as will. I also see Him protecting us from the very beginning. So much more!!!
Stanley Castro: Lust and, promiscuity? Spilling of the seed in vain by masturbation?
Lope Columna: Hi, Friends! You are really thinking! Keep thinking and sharing your thoughts. Your answers are so near the target, yet still far from the bull's eye. I encourage others to "chip in" their ideas. Very soon, I will give mine.
