The Ten Commandments

You Shall Not Murder

September 10, 2021   •   Exodus 20:13

The sixth commandment “You shall not murder” seems quite straightforward. And yet, we know that sometimes people kill in wars, or in self-defense, and so we need to ask ourselves is it ever ok to kill? In Ecclesiastes it says that there is a time to kill, so how do we reconcile that with this commandment? And what exactly does the sixth commandment demand of us? Join Groundwork as we study the first murder recorded in the Bible and other passages in both the Old and New Testaments to gain a deeper understanding of the sixth commandment and discover why recognizing each person as an image-bearer of God is so vital to helping us keep it.
