To us humans, sometimes the character of God, some of His attributes, seems to be full of paradoxes. For example: love and wrath, justice and mercy, truth and grace. But only in God alone are these in perfect balance. Our human tendency is to over emphasize one over the other. As Pr. Nathanael continues to look at the book of Exodus, we need to evaluate both sides of each equation in order to truly understand God and how He wants us to live so that we do not live in either extreme.

Iguaçu Falls, the Grand Canyon - these are nature´s beauties that can leave you breathless upon sight. They are so incredible. How do we respond when seeing something truly awesome? How do we react when being in the presence of God, the Almighty Creator? There are two basic ways that people react when experiencing God´s presence. Either we are afraid of God, or we have a fear of God. Pr. Nathanael continues to look at how God reveals Himself to us.

The jury is ready to pass judgement on a convicted felon. In Bible times, the word of an eye witness was of highest respect. Today we give more value to scientific or even of recorded evidence. What has happened to human character? What is our nature? God wanted His people to be of a higher standard - His own standard. He is a God of truth, and in His essence He cannot be contrary to that. Pr. Nathanael looks at the commandment in Exodus 20 many say is "Do Not Lie" to help understand more about God and how He wants Believers to live.

Maybe one of the most accepted commandments people remember, along #6 "Do Not Murder," is #8 - that of "Do Not Steal." Everyone enjoys having and understands protection of their own property. But God doesn´t want us to just have control of our actions. He wants us to have control of our thoughts and attitudes. That is why He includes #10 - "No Coveting" and describes it in greater depth (Exodus 20:17). There are sideeffects of stealing and coveting: they lead to issolation, disunity, distrust, suspicion - not to mention the disciplinary side of being caught. Stealing and coveting share a root cause which show our relationship with God, our surrender to Him and our faith in God Himself. What is that root, and what is the remedy to avoid stealing and coveting? By going deeper into understanding these commandments, Pr. Nathanael Fawcett helps us know more about God and what He wants for us.

If we do not dig deeper to understand the attributes and character of God that underly this command, one might perceive a bit of flexibility with the definition of adultery in the historical context of the Ten Commandments. But this and other commandments that are expressed in a negative tense are actually meant to affirm the positive side and thus teach us more about God and how we should live. Pr. Nathanael Fawcett looks at Exodus 20:14 to show us how God is faithful.
