Lo tachmod, you shall not covet! With God it really is the thought that counts. Jeff Patton explores the biblical instructions relating to the tenth commandment – a divine directive that deals specifically with how we use our mind. As we get ready to observe the Feast, one of God’s promises touches on this concept of covetousness and gives us great comfort as we prepare to leave our homes behind to honour God. Do you know what this promise is?

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?

PLEASE HELP US
To help us in our last-minute planning for the Feast of Tabernacles in Penticton could you please fill in our short questionnaire so we may better serve your needs.
There are ten questions and it will only take a few minutes to complete.
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.

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.
