The Ninth Commandment from Jeremiah Patton on Vimeo.
Is honesty the best policy? Does God have something to say about it? And what does, “Bear false witness really mean?” Is this a legal phrase telling us how to behave in a court of law? Is it OK to lie to the “infidel” because the scripture only cites bearing false witness against a neighbour? Jeff Patton answers these questions and searches the scriptures to give us a more comprehensive understanding of the ninth commandment – one of God’s prime directives for life.

A SPECIAL NOTE: SCENT-FREE ZONE
Since there are people who are sensitive to petrochemicals and perfumes we are asking that all participants consider the meeting hall a “scent-free” zone.
So please use scent-free personal hygiene products: shampoos, deodorant etc. and do not wear cologne or perfume in the meeting hall.
Let’s take this little step to “love others as ourselves” and give those with sensitivities the pleasure of assembling with us without the pain of allergic responses.

LO TIGNOV! There’s more to theft than padding an expense account or jacking a car. Theft is a way of life for many people and organizations. So what does God say are the consequences of ignoring this command and the blessings for obedience? Jeff Patton reveals what the scriptures have to say and offers the antidote to that thieving heart.
CLEAN AND UNCLEAN
By Jean Jantzen
“For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people. Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you. I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:16
Would we feed our family food we know is contaminated or unclean? Most people would not eat unclean meat knowingly, but some believe that eating unclean animals is not a sin, but only breaking health laws—no big deal! That view seems too simplistic!

In the days leading up to the anniversary of the terrorist attack on New York’s Twin Towers the news media are full of stories about how our lives have changed as result of that deadly event. Make no mistake about it. Much has changed, and not for the good!
Even in Canada, which was not directly in 9/11’s crosshairs, the costs have been high.
