Which of the Ten Commandments Are You?

You Are "Thou Shalt Not Covet"

You believe that people are too materialistic and too envious these days. No matter what, the person who ends up with the most toys still dies.

You think it's important to deal with your own life and spiritual path - not how you stack up against your neighbor.

Comparing yourself to others always brings problems. You try bring your focus inward.


  1. You Are "Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness"
    You don't just think that honesty is the best policy, you think it's the only policy.
    You believe that it's important to be truthful, especially with yourself and the ones you love most.

    No doubt about it, the truth is sometimes quite ugly. But we need to face how ugly it is before we work to change it.
    You think the world would be a better place if all the lying and deception stopped. Let's lay the cards out on the table.

  2. You are Thou Shalt Not Steal

    You believe that it's wrong to take what isn't yours, and this goes beyond basic petty theft and shoplifting.
    You also try not to take other's time away from them, and you try not to take from the planet.

    You think it's important to tread lightly and do as little damage as possible. You don't like to use up resources.
    You also think it's crucial to be as self-sufficient as possible. You don't ask for a favor unless you truly need one.

  3. You Are "Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother"

    You may or may not have the most honorable parents, but you try to respect and honor them whenever possible.
    In general, you think that people should focus on their families more. Charity begins at home.

    You also believe that younger generations should do a better job taking care of their elders.
    It saddens you to see how older people are treated in most cultures. You think it's truly a disgrace.

  4. Yes-- everyone's getting a different answer! I like togetherness, but there's something about getting a variety of answers on these that tickles me. :)

  5. I guess I'll be the first one to repeat. I got "Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother"

  6. I also got 'Honour Thy Father and Mother'. I do admit that I think good manners, etc are going down the drain. And I do think its a disgrace the way that the elderly are treated but, on the other hand in my work, they can be the rudest people going so I don't really know what the answer is.

  7. You Are "Thou Shalt Not Kill"
    You are a very peaceful person, and you try to avoid hurting a fly if possible.
    You believe every life is sacred, and you wish there was no killing in the world.

    You have a kind heart and a passion for social justice. You wish things were more fair.
    It breaks your heart to know about hunger, poverty, disease, and violence. You are working towards change!

    That's why the deer hunters around here say I have a Bambi complex. :)

  8. Kris-- Nothing wrong with repeating, you know! :)

    Barbra-- Yes, the elderly can be some of the most willfully rude people on the face of the earth. Quite a few of them seem to think their age means they don't have to be civil. If it's their mind or something else as the cause, that's a different matter altogether.

    Barbara-- This is a subject about which I'm torn. If the herds are too large and need thinning because members are getting sick and dying.... What I absolutely hate is sport hunting-- going out just to prove you can kill something. I went hunting with my grandfather. There were no trophies taken, and all the animals that were killed were eaten. With all the crap the commercial feedlots put into what becomes meat for our tables, wild meat may be healthier, and isn't that a sad statement to make?


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
