Give Thanks to Property Rights

by

“Thou shalt not steal” is what God spoke before the people of Israel in front of Mount Sinai. They heard God’s voice, and it was indisputable.

That is the foundation for property rights.

Or, if you prefer, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Since I like people to leave my stuff alone, I’ll leave their stuff alone.

This religious ideal, and our general obedience to it, is why we have never had a famine in our country.

Let us give thanks to God for His divine law.
