I was recently bemused by some comments in another thread that excused theft in some cases. I wonder how many of us take everyday dishonesty for granted.
"Genesis 30:29-33 - Jacob lived long before God gave the Ten Commandments at Sinai, yet he understood theft. Stealing is taking or appropriating another's property or ideas without permission, dishonestly or unlawfully, usually in a secret manner. The apostle Paul reiterates the eighth commandment in the New Testament (Romans 13:9), showing that it is clearly a sin to steal." Martin G. Collins on the Eighth Commandment
