Today, the seventh commandment means the same thing as what God intended it to mean when he gave it to the Israelites. The seventh commandment means don't steal anyone things. Stealing peoples things is a sin because they worked hard to get their belongings and to take it away from them without any sort of giving back to them is wrong. The seventh commandment also means to respect others people items and to not damage them. In more modern terms, online fraud is prohibited with the seventh commandment also.

The Seventh Commandment

When God gave Moses and the Israelites the seventh commandment, he intended for people not to take their neighbors goods. This commandment was important for Israel at this time because people needed laws to be governed by. The seventh commandment is important because people can be tempted to take things that they don't have. The seventh commandment shows people that it's not right to steal other peoples items.

You should not take anyones belongings from them and you should respect their properties.

What does the Seventh Commandment mean to me? To me, the seventh commandment tells me not to take or disrespect other people's belongings. But besides not stealing, it tells me not to cheat people out of things. It also tells me not to borrow things without getting permission of the owner. Stealing is a very bad thing to do. When you steal from someone else, there losing what they earned and you're getting something you don't deserve. How is that fair? It's not fair at all. Stealing is not only a sacred commandment but it's a law in our government today. Everyone knows that stealing is bad but people still do it. They know in their heart that it's wrong but they don't listen to their heart and they just see the outcome: a gain of something that they didn't have.   Stealing is wrong no matter what the reason is. There is no reason good enough to take someone else's belongings. The abolishment of fraud is also included in the seventh commandment. Making money from being a fraudster is not right in any way. How would you feel if someone stole something from you. Not so happy, right? When you steal you're gaining something, but your also losing your connection with God. Which one is more important: valuables or God.

“Enter, stranger, but take heedOf what awaits the sin of greed,For those who take, but do not earn,Must pay most dearly in their turn.So if you seek beneath our floorsA treasure that was never yours,Thief, you have been warned, bewareOf finding more than treasure there.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
