The 6th Commandment: Why Everyone On Earth Is Guilty Of Murder

Cain Slaying Abel (Jacopo Palma, 1590)

Have you ever “lost” an argument?

If you’re like most people, you always replay the argument in your mind. Of course, in the replay you always win the argument! You always smash ’em down and put them in their place. You’re like, “They say that, but then I make this super-amazing argument. That would have been great!”

Indeed, we’ve all lots many arguments—but we’ve never lost a rerun. While our mental replay may not seem to have any harm in it, at its core is a murderous spirit, which is exactly what the Sixth Commandment prohibits:

Exodus 20:13 says, “You shall not murder.”

Observing the Sixth Commandment is more than just dealing with physical murder (though it does do that!). Essentially, this commandment is about valuing the lives of others and realizing that people are precious image-bearers of God Himself (Gen. 1:26). This commandment means that the most valuable things on Earth are others. And loving others and leveraging your life to protect and prosper them is of utmost importance.

Why Do People Murder?

First, let’s remember that the Bible says that sin extends to everyone and sinfulness is total. Read Romans 3:9-20.
