New Addition To Comment Policy

For various reasons, I have decided to add something to the comment policy; Luther’s explanation to the 8th Commandment.

The Eighth Commandment

You shall not give false testimony against your neighbor.

What does this mean?  We should fear and love God so that we do not tell lies about our neighbor, betray him, slander him, or hurt his reputation, but defend him, speak well of him, and explain everything in the kindest way.

Read it!  Heed it!  As always, the decisions of the admin with regard to the comment policy are final.


One thought on “New Addition To Comment Policy

  1. I think our entire media culture needs to learn this gloss on the 8th commandment. We seem to think that comments like – metaphorical illustration alert! – “No one is exactly sure when he stopped beating his wife” are completely morally acceptable because we never actually said anything untruthful.
